I'm super excited about these kits Big Bird and Bert have never been opened.Oscar was opened but never used. The person balled a few skeins of yarn then gave up on the project. The yarn is really rough but I bought it more for the patterns and sense of nostalgia than anything else.I'm not really in crochet mode right now so I have a feeling these will join my stash until I get my knitting bug out. It seemed wrong having Bert without Ernie so I hunted him down.On my search for Ernie I found a website with the patterns for Oscar,Cookie Monster and Ernie.

I was thinking about making these to gift and maybe sell but I doubt kids would be intersted in a toy that doesn't do tricks. Oh well at least I'm amused by them. [/color]

Those are amazing!  I'd love to see them when you finally do them.  I bet that adults would want them for nostalgic reasons.

I'm loving these. Awesome find.
I grew up with toys that didn't move.

Post pics when you get anyone of them done. Would be interested in seeing them.
I'm sure they will come out really cute.  Cheesy

Oh! My great-grandmother (99, still livin' and craftin') recently passed a pile of craft books/ magazine articles/ torn out thingies she'd kept since forever. One page was an advertisement for these crochet patterns, with all the Sesame Street characters done. I should scan that page so  you guys can see the all the finished dolls - they're great! How awesome of you to find the patterns to some. :-D
