FAO Schwarz has unveiled its Muppet Whatnot puppets, background creatures that appear in every Muppet production, for customers to design and purchase.
The Fifth Avenue store will feature a Whatnot Workshop where shoppers can create Muppet puppets by selecting a body; choosing eyes, nose and hair; and dressing the doll.
Puppet makers in the will assemble the Whatnot in about 30 minutes. Each puppet comes with a puppeteer hand rod and a clear, vinyl backpack. Customers also can create their very own Muppet Whatnots online.
