Hasbro’s Haslab made a big splash a little more than a year ago when they launched their first toy-based crowd-funding project for the Star Wars Jabba’s Sail Barge. Now they’re back with something a little different, a little blue, and a lotta awesome. Haslab has just launched their Sesame Stree, Full-sized, Cookie Monster Photo Puppet.
If the idea of a photo puppet sounds familiar, it’s because Master Replicas released a series of Muppets in that form around a decade ago. Photo puppets are not the kind where you stick your hands up their butt, but the wire-framed versions that are used for photo shoots. At $299, this 38″ plush Muppet is just about perfect, all the way down to the googly eyes. Check out the pics and details below. Then, head here to place your order. They need 300 pre-orders to make Cookie Monster a reality.

WHY COOKIE MONSTER ?
Because he’s been there from the start.
Because he’s a beloved fan-favorite.
Because “C is for Cookie” is an anthem of our collective childhood.
Because to bring the dream of a full-size Sesame Streetproduct to life, we consulted with leaders and influencers in the Muppet fan community to voice fan opinion about character choice, product development, offering, and messaging—making this a by-the-fans, for-the-fans project, every step of the way.
