    I was really excited about these. I think I'll knit my own piggy after I've made Jim.

    just went to build a bear website. Is just the plain miss piggy & Kermit online exclusive? What is the difference? Are they available in the stores? Thanksツ

    I called the local buildabear store by me yesterday and they said they WILL have the muppets for $23 in store tomorrow for purchase.

    Yup, they're $23! Great price for such huge plushies!! :) Got ours yesterday morning, the girls working really loved that I was wearing my green Kermit shirt, and my Son had on his green Kermit hoodie-jacket. :D They even took a picture of us!

    We love our new BaB Kermit's!

    I'm so excited! I just came back from my local build a bear! Kermit looks great. Piggy I kinda had to dig up for a good one because some of the heads were weird looking.

    Overall I'm ecstatic. I chose the custom sounds and recorded a segment of the original Rainbow Connection from my iPhone since i have the song. It came out surprisingly clear. I'm all smiles!

    Seems like I never have the right stores around me when I need them. I think the closest Build-a-Bear to me is about 2 hours away. I think you might be able to get them online, but I'll probably never get around to ordering them. So I guess I'll just have to watch everyone else get excited about them :)

    Okay--I got a Buildabear gift card as a birthday present for the express purpose of making a Kermit and Piggy. Hubby really surprised me, and deserves lots of kissy-kissys. The whole family came along. My daughter helped me make them--my teenage son stood outside the store and pretended not to know us!

    I think Piggy looks FABULOUS! It's the best Piggy doll I've seen, but I agree with some of the comments here that you have to sort of look through the bin of unstuffed Piggys and pick the one that speaks to you. Her eyes are super-good and embroidered on and, interestingly enough, her pearls are embroidered on, which makes sense to me since this is basically a cuddle doll. Kermit is cute, but surprisingly stout. The clothes, although they are made to fit ALL the OTHER Buildabear bears (and rabbits and dogs and frogs, etc) are good--the STYLE of Piggy's dress is good--it comes with gloves and a boa (of course it does) and you can buy the high heels and the matching purse. The Piggy doll is a little under-endowed, but she makes it work in the dress.
