Muppets or Puppets

Quick, off-beat question...

Does anyone know any places in the city that sell or rent out Muppets (or Muppet-style puppets)?

Edit: I found my guy at FAO.



If you'd like to see my and Marvin the Muppet's epic success (or Epic Fail) come to Fontana's tomorrow night at 7 for a Halloween party.

Thanks for all the suggestions folks!

FAO Schwarz has a really neat thing going on right now where you can custom design a Muppet, and they'll make it for you. It's a bit pricey, though, like somewhere around $90. They're likely to have ready-made dolls available as well, I'd imagine.

I configured a few online last week, but it looks like a few of their styles are out of stock.

I'll pass by there after work to see if they have any in stock. Thanks!

This is my favorite question for today. I'm amusing myself just thinking about what you could be using the muppets for.

Haha, thanks!

I've decided to finally explore my hidden talent for voice impersonation and be a Muppeteer for Halloween and other socially non-conforming events.

I work at FAO and we just opened the Muppet What Not Workshop yesterday. There are a certain number of outfits, wigs, eyes and colors available but it is a genuine Muppet and I can't wait to make one!

That's awesome! Can I just show up and make one?
27th-Oct-2008 08:40 pm (UTC)
Yup:) I can tell you they are very good quality.

the initial date was november 13 (and i'm sure the website still says so), but they offically opened monday and had a soft opening on sunday. they were actually also selling pepe's new book prior to its official release date too.
