Hello New York Doll Collectors, and doll collectors around the country and world. We have been viewing many types of dolls from Madame Alexander. Dolls, wearing very unique and fashionable outfits, that are just glorious to look at. Madame Alexander has more. Here, we are going to view a unique and wonderful character, that most us will recognize and love. Kermit the Frog from the series of the Muppets. Madame Alexander joined forces with Disney Studios, to make this magnificent doll, based on a Disney Muppet character. Let’s take a look at this adorable frog.
Kermit The Frog, originally created by the famous Muppet creator Jim Henson, has shined his muppet light from Sesame Street to the Muppets Show. We have been graced with this character on our favorite television programs, showing his acting talents and making it big on the music scene, with his 1970’s hit song, “Bein’ Green” and “The Rainbow Connection”. This wonderful frog has such a wonderful history, that it is most gratifying to see that Madame Alexander and Disney Studios, have invested it’s doll making hours to bring the memories of this beloved frog back into the future. Madame Alexander’s Kermit The Frog captures the spirit of our originally made Kermit the Frog. How? Let’s take a closer look.
Madame Alexander has given Kermit The Frog a plush and textured fabric for his lily pad color skin. His arms are long, over his granny smith, apple shaped body. Which gives a wonderful feeling of lifting him up under his shoulders, as you would do with a baby or child. His hands are flat, but Madame Alexander has created, creases to indicate where his fingers lay. His legs are long, so that one can imagine him on a shelf, and seeing his legs dangle, as we have seen countless of times, on television shows, where he is seated. His padded feet, with triangular shaped toes, look soft to the touch, with the same textured, plush fabric as the rest of his entire being. Definitely his flat footed feet are made perfectly for swimming in the waters of the ponds.
Madame Alexander’s Kermit the Frog, has added the olive collar to his green ensemble, just as the original. With his heart shape tongue, red triangular shaped mouth, we can remember how he talked and sang to us, telling stories and saying the lines of acting, in the various movies he has been in. It’s a wonderful match, and brings us back to a time of when we first set eyes on him. It certainly brings us back to the educational and comedic programs he has been apart of for many years. Speaking of eyes, his mouth, blended into the makings of his face and head, we then reach and look into his adoring, ping pong, moon shaped eyes, with his famous keyhole type shaped pupils.
What an adorable frog we have in our midst. Definitely a wonderful treasure to have. Madame Alexander’s Kermit The Frog is 9 inches tall, and is currently at the price of $24.95. Kermit The Frog is also available in a hand puppet form. Check the website for availability and current price.
