    hey MC gang,

    with the Holidays around the corner I was just wondering who else here (besides myself) "Muppet Ups" there kids (or grand kids niece and nephew, what have you) with Muppet stuff? I was just wondering cause my gf and I did with her 2 niece (6 and 11 years old) and 2 nephew's (both 3 years old) for halloween and upcomming christmas...

    For Halloween the kids get Disney tick or treat bags with candy with disney pez and for Muppets stuff the 2 boys get these Nascar Muppet cars (http://www.ebay.com/itm/190580606945?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649) and this Disney parks kermit car (http://www.ebay.com/itm/190544120287?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649) and the 2 girls get this Miss Piggy money pouch someone made on ebay (http://www.ebay.com/itm/290372672222?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649#ht_500wt_949) and this Miss Piggy picture frame (http://www.ebay.com/itm/360272096300?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649) and for each sibling to share a DVD copy of "The Muppets wizard of Oz" (there parents said it was ok)

    ....and christmas so far for Muppety thing i got was, each of the kids get there own Muppets reuseable sticker book (http://www.ebay.com/itm/390340234331?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649) 2 boxes of these Muppet ornaments (boys get kermit & the girls Miss piggy) http://www.ebay.com/itm/Kermit-and-...ultDomain_0&hash=item519b1c2b80#ht_1408wt_698 and also there getting a DVD copy to share with there sibling of "Its a very merry Muppet christmas movie" (again both parents said it was fine) & lastly for Muppety stuff for the kids is this Muppet fabric (http://www.ebay.com/itm/250908401027?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649#ht_500wt_715) and each of the 4 kids are getting a "homemade" pillow we're making them.

    It's great to see your integrating the Muppets with special occasions! I don't know what I'm doing for Christmas yet... I was thinking of getting something muppety for my young cousins.. as for Halloween, I'm having Uncle Deadly "help" pass out candy to the kids.
    Great Job!

    Dressed my daughter as Animal for halloween and she received the EM mini-plush in her sticking last year. This year she is getting the new Sesame figurines for christmas and I expect a few other Muppety things as well.

    the MAIN reason i did it for the kids is because i WANT them to know WHO the Muppets are! :) When we stop over there every so offten i see them watching (most of it anyways) is NASTY or gross stuff on Cartoon Network like some show with a blue bird or one called gumball...they DO love P&F on disney channel (i love that cartoon myself too!)

    Our boys are getting all the new Muppet clothing we can find at Target - jammies, shirts, hoodies. Do you know how long it's been since we've had Muppet clothes for kids?! I'm uber excited about getting some for my own, and they're at the age they don't have an opinion really about what they wear. Our youngest one is also getting the new Sesame Street figures and Wii game. We pretty much Muppet it up everywhere we go. We don't need a special holiday for that. :)

    Hmmm ... my kids like muppets and puppets but not really their wish lists as far as Christmas goes. My five year old collects smurfs and has for the last couple of years. The two year old is into strawberry shortcake. They both like Sesame street so there will be some Muppets under the tree for them. I aolways get something Muppety from my wife though (She got me a Jim Shore Fozzie for our Anniversery on Friday). To be honest its kind of odd because Muppets and puppetry is such a part of our lives but it really isn't about merchandise for them (though we have our share of t-shirts, toys, and such). It just doesn't seem like too much came out this time either. FOr stuffed animals we missed Pepe and we bought Walter but we have several Kermits (though Oddly no Miss Piggy) I did have them pose with their Muppet Christmas shirts and various Muppet stuffed animals for our Christmas card though.

    LOL! But you just reminded me Walmart has this vending type machine at the front of the store where you can personalize dog tags and they have an Animal one on display. I guess Animal's on one side and then you personalize the other side for your pet. If you have a big cat it'd probably work!
