Recently, our good friends at FAO Schwarz have reopened their Muppet Whatnot Workshop online. Now you can purchase your very own Muppet Whatnot online with even more customization possibilities. For $130, you can build and personalize your very own Muppet Whatnot, now with monster Whatnot items. Follow the link to the Whatnot Workshop at the bottom of this page or click here to build your very own Whatnot today!
Have you ever wanted to perform with the Muppets? Do you have about $3000 to donate to a charity? If so, why not bid on The Ultimate Muppet Whatnot Experience from FAW Schwarz? If you are the highest bidder on this exciting experience, you will be flown to New York City to build your very own Muppet Whatnot. After your Whatnot is built, you will have a once in a lifetime opportunity to meet Kermit the Frog and Fozzie Bear at the Workshop before undergoing Muppeteer training and performing your Whatnot in a video with Kermit to be uploaded on Muppets.com. If that wasn’t enough, you’ll also receive a copy of this video for your very own. If this wasn’t currently auctioning for $2,300, I would be bidding on it like there’s no tomorrow!
