Fans of Sesame Street's newest fairy-in-training will be happy to know that the first round of Abby Cadabby merchandise is heading your way! Several new dolls and books are featuring the new rising star of Sesame Street.
Fisher-Price has just released the "Singing Abby Cadabby" doll. This plush doll sings a song or says some of Abby's signature phrases when you squeeze her. The large plush doll is perfect for children ages 18 months and up; and comes with the 3 AA batteries required. The doll also comes bundled with an exclusive DVD that features the lovable Abby Cadabby. The doll and DVD are being sold in toy stores for around $15.
Also being released from Fisher-Price is the Elmo and Abby "Friends Forever" plush toy bundle. This two-pack includes a set of two loveable, huggable, cuddly and soft dolls. The Elmo and Abby dolls are currently being sold together for a retail price of just under $10 (which comes out to about $5 per doll).
And for those book worms out there, Abby will also be staring in a batch of new books as well. Abby will star in "Abby Cadabby's Rhyme Book" which will be released in July by Dalmatian Press. TokoyoPop's third Sesame Street photo comic, entitled "Abby's First Day of School", will be released on July 3, 2007. And Abby takes center stage in the book "Guess Who, Abby!" by Constance Allen which will be released on September 11, 2007.
More Abby Cadabby, and other Sesame Street, merchandise is in the works. I'll be sure to keep you posted with more information on special Sesame Street products as the information becomes available -- and be sure to catch Abby in action during the 38th season of Sesame Street later this year.
