Spinney is the puppeteer behind Sesame Street character Big Bird, as well as the grumpy Oscar the Grouch.

Sesame Street - Cookie Monster Replica

Last year, Hasbro started a new crowdfunding initiative for unique and expensive toys called HasLab. It began with a massive Star Wars playset of Jabba the Hutt’s sail barge from Return of the Jedi that cost $500. The project ended up meeting its goal, and everyone who supported the project got their own sail barge scaled to 3 and 3/4 inch Star Wars figures. But HasLab’s next project isn’t quite as expensive, and it might have a little more appeal to the general public.

HasLab has announced their next crowdfunded project is a life-size replica of the beloved Sesame Street character known as Cookie Monster. It’s not exactly an action figure, but it’s not a full fledged puppet either. It’s a fully poseable, screen accurate blue plush replica of Cookie Monster with a skeleton that allows his arms, legs and fingers to be positioned in endless ways. Check it out and find out how you can pre-order it below. Read More »
