As originally planned, FAO Schwarz's Muppet Whatnot Workshop launched earlier today. Now consumers can create and customize their very own Muppet Whatnot. These premium and customizable puppets are retailing for just around $90 each (plus shipping and handling). Customers can create and customize their very own Whatnot puppet by picking a puppet body and accessorizing it with a variety of Muppet features and accessories.
The Muppet Whatnots are hand and rod puppets, just like the real Muppets. They're 16" tall and come in their own clear, drawstring backpack so your Muppet Whatnot can go with you wherever you go. You can also order the premium Muppet Whatnot Gift Kit, which allows the lucky recipient to embark on the unique, creative adventure of designing their very own performing puppet (a great holiday gift for any Muppet fan).
Begining on November 13th, visitors of FAO Schwarz's flagship store in New York will be able to participate in an exclusive in-store workshop experience to build their very own Whatnot Muppet. So check out the all-new Muppet Whatnot Workshop online at FAO.com. I will be sure to keep you updated on this exciting new boutique as soon as more details are announced.
