    There is a possibility of me getting a digital camera for Monday so I could send you the pics then, that is if someone doesn't beat me to it first. I have pictures of all the chalkboards I've done so far (some of them still need to be developed), but I'd have to scan them all so that's most likely a project for August...

    List?

    So, which ones are currently available, and are there any more planned?

    Thanks.

    The finger puppets currently available are going to vary from store to store. Most have sold out, but you might luck out if you check out a multitude of them.

    So far these are the puppets that have been released:

    Kermit
    Fozzie
    Beaker
    Animal
    Gonzo
    Rowlf

    Miss Piggy and Chef are supposedly coming out as well. Plus there have been rumblings about a Christmas Promotion of some sort.

    My sister went to a Starbucks in our Target and the employee showed her the Piggy and Chef finger puppet. The employee said that they would be released next week but since they showed my sister, they let her buy them. She still hasn't given me the piggy one yet, but I did get the Chef. He looks like the Chef. Only he has more of a double (or should I say triple) chin.
    Anyways, be on the lookout for these two within the next week or so!

    I'm betting they got them and sold out already

    Considering we have a million Fozzies (and everything takes forever to reach the west coast... trust me) I doubt it...

    I just wanted a Rowlf... is that a crime???

    I live on the west coast and we've had the second set for awhile now. They just re-stocked it too. Haven't seen Chef or Piggy yet. :D

    Miss Piggy and the Swedish Chef are definitely out there. I picked mine up this week. If anybody is looking for them in Oklahoma City, try the Starbucks at the Penn Square Mall. I didn't see them at first, just assorted Fozzies, Animals, Gonzos (Gonzi?), and Rowlfs. Then I looked at the display to the right of the register, and they were there in all their glory. Happy hunting!

    :)

    The two new ones are Miss Piggy and the Swedish Chef. I haven't heard of a Bunsen one. :confused:

    I haven't heard about the second addition for Kermit either. I thought that he had been rereleased, but not a new one made.

    Although I thought somewhere I heard rumblings about Xmas ones?

    I saw the cookies too! They look great! Too bad I can't eat them. :(

    "I saw the cookies too! They look great! Too bad I can't eat them."

    They are lemon flavored...I wouldn't want to eat them then...uck!


    I think Kermit, Beaker and maybe Fozzie were rerelased with a tag that stated it.

    finger puppets

    :attitude: I think the finger puppets look cheap. I wouldn't pay that much for them and I am offended that they even used the muppets at all to sell useless junk at starbucks.

    That's kind of harsh, don't you think? No, they aren't of the greatest quality, but have YOU ever tried to sew something that small? :mad: I have, and its no mean feat. I for one was thrilled (of course I'm easily amused:p) to find two of my favorite things in one place. I have them on my desk at work, and it never fails that someone comes up to admire them.

    Finger Puppets Wanted

    Ok.. I'm dying to have Beaker, Gonzo, and Animal. I have a bid on a set at Ebay but am pretty sure I'll get out bid. Anyone's stores still carrying these and could get them for me? I'd pay for shipping even (i'm in Arlington, VA).

    Aren't collectibles by default useless?

    But I agree with Puppets. etc. They are quite small, so detail is pretty hard to do... Besides, Fozzie, Chef, Rowlf, and Beaker were well done. the others, not so much.

    I wish they'd sell the puppets sepperate. I hate those candy sticks. They taste awful!

    RE: Puppets

    So what if they are useless... you don't need to buy them. If someone likes them - great.

    And I don't really care that Starbucks is selling them. I don't see them popping up elsewhere.

    I'd love to get Gonzo and possibly Animal (to complete the collection... the nerfball head doesn't exactly WOW me....) but they sold out before I knew they had them. I was EXTREEMLY lucky to get Rowlf though!

    Hopefully wave 2 will be rereleased like series 1 was...
