Happy Holidays Toys For Tots!

Each year we like to give the gift of Jim Henson and the Muppets to kids that may not have the opportunity to have a Muppet fan in their life. 

This year a special child will receive Funko Sesame Street Pop! vinyl figures, Hallmark Muppet Itty Bitty's, or a Playskool Big Bird and Snuffy toy through the great efforts of Toys for Tots. 

While the collection period has ended, we recommend spreading the gift of The Muppets in any way you can, especially to those less fortunate.
