I was a huge fan of the Muppet Show growing up and was thrilled when they announced the Muppet Tsum Tsum collection.
Of course, leading things off are the sweet Kermit the Frog and the tenacious Miss Piggy. I love that Kermit is smiling and his ruff isn’t a normal felt, but almost has a velvety texture. This same texture is repeated in Miss Piggy’s dress, which is adorned with an embroidered string of pearls, and I was pleased to note, she was wearing her lavender gloves. I was glad to see this attention to detail.
Fozzy Bear is truly adorable and I absolutely love the hapless expression on his face, which is framed by his ever present scarf. Gonzo’s expression is a little silly, but that’s to be expected with him. I am so glad they didn’t overdo his nose, and I love the fact that they added the flower in his jacket as an embroidered detail.
Causing havoc in this group is Animal and Swedish Chef. As it should be, the Swedish Chef is all hair, and has some of the best detailing on his outfit. I love the bow on his back that is tying his apron. Animal’s expression is perfect and the colors of his fur and outfit are spot on.
I’m going to surprise you by telling you that Rowlf the dog is my favorite. Once again, it’s the fact that the simplicity of the character translates perfectly to the simplicity of a Tsum Tsum. It doesn’t hurt that he’s also the softest of the bunch.
This collection is bright and fun, so pick it up today at your local Disney Store or buy them online at www.disneystore.com.
