Once a Muppet fan, always a Muppet fan. Jake and I have watched every episode of the first three seasons of the Muppet Show on DVD. (My favorite is the one with George Burns.)
At FAO Schwarz you can create your own Muppet Whatnot, a Muppet extra. Way more fun than a Star Trek red shirt, plus you don’t have to explain to your son why he didn’t get beamed back up.
$129.99 from FAO Schwarz
(Note: Beginning some time this year, Disney parks will also offer these.)
