A Very Special Special #2
Cookie Monster + Hasbro's Bill Rawley
Puppet Tears second 'Very Special Special' goes COWABUNGA as we learn about the Cookie Monster photo puppet replica from Hasbro's HasLab! This crowd-funding project is the brain-child of Bill Rawley, Muppet devotee and Senior Product Design Manager at Hasbro.
The only way this collectible becomes a reality is if 3,000 people contribute by August 25th. Further, if you haven’t backed the campaign in that time, then you’ll have missed your chance completely. This is the ONLY opportunity you’ll have to buy this Cookie replica.
We talk with Bill about this labour of love - from the early stages development and visiting the Henson Company workshop to study actual Cookie photo puppets, through creating an effective armature and high-quality prototype! This discussion is an incredible look into the wonderful world of toy design.
