This is great! My grandma crocheted a Bert doll once - he didn't quite look like this, so I'm not sure if it's from this same kit or not. Such good memories ... Thanks for the link!

Oooh!  Thanks for posting this!  We are big Sesame nuts here, especially my husband.  I bookmarked the link for the patterns.

Wow!! This just totally made my day, week month!  I LOVE Sesame Street!  Especially the good ol' Sesame Street without Elmo and the newer annoying characters.  Thank you so much for posting that link! 

Where did you buy the kits?  Have you started crocheting them yet??

I have bert and ernie latch hook kits that must be from the same company, based on the box design.
I've finished ernie, but not bert. And you're right, boy is that yarn scratchy.

I can't wait to see what you whip up with the new yarn.

Super super fun.

when my son was little he loved Bert and Ernie and I bought those kits. The yarn was really rough and I hated it. My neighbor crocheted them both for him and he loved them, might still have them and I know I still have the patterns in my stash of patterns. I sewed a pair of Bert and Ernie dolls for him that were about 2 foot tall, made from fake fur, short napped. They had jeans made from real jeans and t-shirts from old striped t-shirts and their shoes were crocheted from Annie's Attic patterns, tennis shoes and saddle oxfords. We bought a Cookie Monster already made.

 Could you share the bert pattern? I have a little someone who would die for it and bert wasn't on the web page that was shared in this thread.

I love old school Sesame Street, too! And hey your doll kits are awesome!!

By the way, is there any ways to purchase them even now? I checked the link (thank you so much!) and tried to crochet Cookie Monster, but it doesn't look properly...

Hiro- the crocheted version will look different than the one from television. Make sure you don't overstuff them. Those kits were from back in the 70's and I think I bought mine from a catalog from Herrscheners or something like that.
