1 The Muppet Mindset: The Muppets Take Amazon!

The Muppets Take Amazon!

Extremely exciting news from The Muppets Studio today as they launch their brand new online Muppet store on Amazon.com. This character/franchise-based store on Amazon is the first of its kind and presumably the Muppets store is a flagship for the entire Walt Disney Company. The site is already very cool, and this probably means that there will be some great new Muppet products coming very soon from The Muppets Studio to coincide with the site.

There are already tons of products available on the site, and it appears that it gathers all of the Muppet products from across Amazon.com, not just the official Disney released products. The categories the products are divided into are...
  • Movies & TV
  • Comics
  • Books
  • Apparel
  • Costumes
  • Accessories
  • Games
  • Plush
  • Collectibles
Visitors to the store will also be able to view Muppet clips and teasers via the page's video player (which is currently playing The Swedish Chef's "Pumpkin Carving" video from last Halloween). The coolest part about this video player? The picture it starts out with:

This is a brand new image featuring, well, The Muppets! Check it out--Floyd, Janice, Dr. Teeth, Sam the Eagle... and it looks like this is part of an even bigger picture (I can totally see part of Rowlf and Camilla in there). Hopefully we'll be seeing this whole image, along with more new Muppet poser images, in the near future.

To celebrate the launch of the site, The Muppets Studio is offering fans the opportunity to purchase three Amazon.com exclusive Muppet DVD Packs. There's a 5-DVD set including all three seasons of The Muppet Show, The Muppet Movie, and Muppet Treasure Island. There's also two different 2-DVD sets which include either The Great Muppet Caper and Muppet Treasure Island or The Muppet Movie and The Muppets' Wizard of Oz. Each DVD pack also comes with a new collectible Muppet tin, including stickers, pencils, and a notepad.

The new Muppets Amazon.com store is sure to be a great exploit for The Muppets Studio and should hopefully be a bridge for exciting new Muppet merchandise!
