Kermit the Frog – Vintage Fisher Price Plush Toy – Jim Henson Muppet Doll # 850 Picture(s) and Description:
Kermit the Frog - Vintage Fisher Price Plush Toy - Jim Henson Muppet Doll Jim Hensons Alter Ego - Kermit the Frog - Muppet Puppet This is a vintage, 1976, Kermit the Frog stuffed animal plush toy. His hands and feet have Velcro on them which stick to any part of the body. Good vintage condition, no rips or tears, slight discoloration on the collar around his neck, from sitting on a shelf all these years but I did not want to try to clean it lest I damage the material. The toy is washable and can always be cleaned with a vinegar/water solution. The tag, on front, states "Fisher Price Toys, Division of the Quaker Oats Co. East Aurora, NY. # 850, Assembled in Mexico, Kermit the Frog, A Jim Henson (his authentic signature) Muppet Doll." The tag, on back, states "c.Henson Associates Inc. 1956, 1976. Reg. No. PA. 274, all new material polyester fiber, wash cold, tumble dry, no heat, E80." Stretched out, Kermit measures: 20 inches long, arm span: 19" wide. A great collectible for Muppet fans, Jim Henson memorailia collectors, Kermit the frog collectors or vintage toy collectors. Stored all these years on a shelf in a cool dry place. Comes from a smoke-free/pet-free home.A brief history: Jim Henson's creatures first appeared on television in 1954. But it was on ''Sesame Street,'' the program for preschoolers that began in 1969, that Kermit the frog, Oscar the Grouch, the voracious Cookie Monster, considerate Bert, fun-loving Ernie, innocent Big Bird and the rest of the Muppet crew won the hearts of a generation. With wit that also appealed to adults, the Muppets helped youngsters learn about everything from numbers and the alphabet to birth and death. They were role models, and they imparted values. And they were more than just daily television pals. Muppets romped on lunch boxes and sheets, and they were reincarnated as toys. As ''Sesame Street'' evolved in the hands of its creators, the scope of its subject matter increased, so did the Muppets. It was in 1956 that he built a frog hand puppet and called him Kermit. ''I suppose that he's an alter ego,'' Mr. Henson said. ''But he's a little snarkier than I am - slightly wise. Kermit says things I hold myself back from saying.''
