Breakdown from Hasbro Pulse :
In order to make an authentic replica, Hasbro product designers took measurements of the actual photorealistic Cookie Monster puppet used for Sesame Street’s still shots to create and build the skeleton. Scale, height, posture, and positioning had to be just right.
Cookie Monster wouldn’t be Cookie Monster without those iconic googly eyes, so the team did some experimenting to get the “googly” just right. HASLAB Cookie Monster’s pupils are convex, approximating the same roundness as the eyeballs themselves, giving the googly eyes a natural look, but with a durable hold.
Product designer Teresa Levy paid special attention to Cookie Monster’s fur color and texture when meeting with Cookie Monster and the Sesame Street team. A swatch was sent to Hasbro’s factory to replicate the dyes and tumbling of the plush. Can you find the swatch of the real Cookie Monster plush within ours?
A full-size, fully poseable final model includes articulation in the hips so Cookie Monster can sit and stand, bendy wire in the hands and fingers, hinged mouth that opens and closes, and a ball joint that allows neck to move and pivot.
