What Muppet Fans Got for Christmas 2011
Ryan Dosier – Christmas has come and gone, 2012 is almost here… and we’re showing off the Christmas gifts that Muppet fans like you (yes, you) received this year! We had an avalanche of emails with lists and lists of Muppet things fans got. Here’s a brief rundown of just some of the things Muppet fans got… there were far too many individual things to list every single thing, but these were the most received by the most people.
- The Muppets Original Soundtrack was the most widely received gift across the board. Over half of the people who emailed me got this as a gift–and they surely loved it!
- Disney Store Muppet Plush were given to almost as many people. Kermit was the one who got given the most, followed by Walter, Animal, and Piggy. But the Fozzie, Gonzo, Rizzo, and Beaker plush were given a lot as well. Not many got Pepe, though… I guess he sold out faster than we thought.
- The Green Album
- Various Muppet DVDs including The Muppet Show Seasons 1-3, The Muppet Movie, The Great Muppet Caper, Muppet Treasure Island, The Muppets’ Wizard of Oz, and more were given quite a lot–probably because Disney filled the stores with them this holiday season. Some folks also received Muppets From Space and The Muppets Take Manhattan on Blu-ray.
- Muppet Vinylmation Figures were gotten by a few people, mostly the 9 inch figures of Tourist Kermit, Animal, Gonzo, and Sam Eagle–probably because they’re the easiest to find on the Disney Store website.
- The Muppets Books were bought quite a lot. The Junior Novel, the Theater Set, the Sticker Book, and all the others were distributed to many Muppet fans.
- The Muppets: A Green and Red Christmas Album (2011 re-issue)
- Muppet T-shirts from Threadless, Target, K-Mart, Wal-Mart and a ton of other places. There are a lot of Muppet shirts out there right now.
- Muppet Socks
- Muppet Boxers
- Muppet Monopoly
- Muppet Yahtzee
- 2012 Muppet Movie Parody Calendar
And so, so many more things. It was a very Muppety Christmas for many folks out there. But that’s not all! Below we have the coolest gifts… rare, homemade, one of a kind, or just plain special items received by some of our readers. There are some really, really awesome items here, so enjoy!!
