when he comes I shall put more up I promise :D
Skywatcher hisself was desirous was of an additional photo of the little guy sans box. I tried to email it to him but that didn't work for some odd reason. So, told him I'd post the piccie up here.
Here he is in his native environment (spelled bag):
As soon as I can get him back in the box and get by the Post Office he'll be on his way to his new home.
Tom (... charming fellow isn't he?)
thanks Tom :D looks way cuter than the 2D image n the whatnot site - if I'm honest I could have bought a whole collection of themand spentthe rest of my life making Muppet shows
I appreciate there is little hope for me :D
Cannot tell you how much I value your help with this
A little surprised noone else has bought one yet though ;)

Once my DW got a look at him, her exact words to me were:
My response?I suppose now you'll be wanting one.
Of course.Yes dear!
I ain't stupid.
Tom (... knows on which side his bread is buttered!)
I know I have said this to you in our emails but the fact is the Muppets were a massive part of my childhood. It was one of the only shows we all sat and watched together as a family.
The humour is regarded by many on this side of the pond as being very 'British' and although they are undoubtedly an American product the fact the show was saved by the BBC's Lew Grade and the Creature workshop was ( I believe ) in the UK means that is you ask people in the street a lot of people genuinely belive they are 'ours' - of course it helps that Frank Oz is British ;)
I watched Muppet videos with Lisa before we had kids - introduced the boys to them through WDW and the parks and recently through the films and DVD's
It is a thing of wonder in the modern world to share an innocent belly laugh with your entire family but we do that each and every time we see a film or watch a youtube clip
Last night the boys were crying laughing so hard at Grovers 'Near and Far' from sesame street - something I laughed at when I was sat on my Mums lap in the 70's
They are timeless genius with a genuine and unique magic
and I am excited to share that with the new addition when he arrives later in the year as well :D
Oh Watcher of Skies... checketh thy email.
His Wozzitness is on his way!
Perhaps you should name him.
I know, we could have a contest. A name the Wozzit contest.
I'll start. Let's call him Waldo. As in "Where's Waldo?"
Tom (... Waldo's on his way... )
I loved the Muppets growing up. I even watched the muppet babies cartoon. I recently bought a green shirt from Target with Kermit on it.
One of my favorite books when I was little was Grover's "There's a Monster at the End of This Book."
