    Yesterday we were in Leland (w00t!), and I ended up stocking up on merchandise at the gift shop of a small museum dedicated to Jim Henson just along Deer Creek. Here's a list of things I got:

    Kermit "Keep it Green" bag

    Fraggle Rock
    Sprocket patch

    The Dark Crystal
    title logo patch

    And 5 pins:
    *Bunsen and Beaker "I *heart* Nerds"
    *Beaker "Meep"
    *"Kermit '79" with a rainbow and him playing banjo
    *The Electric Mayhem

    Went on a bit of a shopping spree on thursday, and visited a really good record shop I occasionally buy really good and reasonable children's records from (like Wombles and Danny Kaye stuff and the like x3). Anyway, I found the 'Sesame Street Fever!' record and bought it for a fiver. =D The condition isn't... /great/, but I'm gonna try it out once I get my old needle out. :)



    Note to self: Migrate to Deer Creek.

    A few DVDs that I mentioned in the "What was the last DVD you bought and why" thread.

    But today I went to a comic book shop and bought issues 1 and 2 of 4 of Muppets: Snow White comic book. I loved that Spamela Hamderson is Snow White, :flirt:, she's one hot pig. I'm looking forward to reading it.

    I already mentioned this on the "What Made You Smile Today?" thread, but: Technically, I didn't buy it because I've never been to Disneyland, but one of my mom's friends is getting me a pressed penny with Animal on it. :halo:

    A Red Fraggle plush by Sababa. I heard good things about the company, and it should come very soon, since the guy who had it lives in Atlanta, and I'm pretty close to said area.
    Needless to say, I'm excited. :excited:

    I was just at a bookstore and bought the first three of the Return to the Labyrinth books.

    Obviously, it would be practically impossible to expect me to go to Disney World and the Atlanta puppetry museum and not buy anything. At the museum I got a tee shirt that says "Moi in Wonderland" with Piggy as Alice, Kermit as the White Rabbit, Animal as the Cheshire Cat, etc., and in Disney I got a Bean Bunny plushie. :)

    I bought a Manhattan Toy Mokey from Amazon last night. She'll compliment my Red nicely. FYI, Wembley is next. :coy:

    Not sure if this counts, but my mom let me have an old Kermit doll she had back in the 80's (1981 according to the tag). :)

    Oh, and also, from the Muppet Vision*3D gift shop, I got a limited edition set of those pens with the rubber band-like "hair" part at the top. (Does anybody know the name of those? I tried searching Kookeys, what I thought it was, on Google and only got something that looks like Webkinz going by the pics :confused:) Anyway, it was a three-pack of those with Kermit, Miss Piggy, and Beaker. :D

    ^ They have a Muppet giftshop there? aww man, that's /so/ awesome!

    Today I scored Dog City: The Movie on DVD. :D I can't tell you how rapt I was to find it, I was browsing through this rather exceptional shop which specialises in cult classics and things a little out of the ordinary, and they import a lot of American shiz (most Henson stuff isn't realised here, and when it does occasionally it can take years), and... I watched it tonight, I love it!

    The last Henson thing I bought was the Sesame Street 20 Years and Still Counting DVD. :insatiable:

    I am also really looking forward to buying the Henson's Place DVD when it comes out. ;)

    Several books of the Gilchrist TMS comic strips. Used. Yeah, it's doofy, but when they were in the papers I read them first.

    I wish they printed them in order, starting from the very beginning.

    I just got a new Kermit shirt from Target: The one with the "Awesome" meter.

    And I ordered a shirt from 80stees that is similar to my avatar, which I was pumped they had. It looks great.

    I saw that one, and I'll get it next time.

    Speaking of shirts, I went to Henson's website and made a custom Fraggle shirt. It's baby blue with the main characters sitting around a stone music note. I'll model it once it comes. :excited:
