These toys are extremely upsetting in a way I can't explain and I can't tolerate looking at them. But I also can't look away. Thank you for the deeply unsettling post.

The number of them that appear to carry actual Children's Television Workshop/Sesame Street branding is shocking. Surely when developing a product for an IP, you have to submit samples??? And these were approved?????????

Regarding the winner: I remember that 90s trend of children's stuffed animals being made of that thin, silky, cold, medicinal, polyester parachute material. I don't know why that was ever a good idea.

You go to hell. All muppets are beautiful. All of them.

I’m just realizing that I am emotionally attached to both muppets and dolls of nonconventional attractiveness.

This is top notch snark. As a fairly internet-poisoned individual, it can be hard to make me actually snicker when reading, but these people absolutely succeeded.
