Fresh from the success of their latest film foray, the marvellous Muppets are certainly not resting on their laurels. The world famous puppets have been put to work by tourism officials in New York City in order to spread the world that the Big Apple is the perfect holiday destination for families.
Kermit and chums appeared at a recent press conference alongside the New York City mayor Michael R Bloomberg to announce the Muppets’ new role as family ambassadors for the city. The characters will be providing tips and suggestions for great family-friendly things to do and see around the city in a series of video blogs to be posted on the tourism website.
The project will run for a year and it’s hoped will inspire visitors to flock to the city, helping tourism officials hit their target of attracting 55 million travellers per year by 2015. Being huge Muppet fans here at Party Domain, we think they’re a great choice for helping attract visitors to the Big Apple. After all, who could say no to Miss Piggy?!
For any other little Muppet aficionados out there, we’ve got an amazing range of Muppet fancy dress that you’re sure to love in our Children’s Film Fancy Dress shop. So why not let your mini Muppets choose from a fabulous Miss Piggy fancy dress, a cosy Children’s Fozzy Bear costume, a funky Animal fancy dress or Kermit fancy dress?!
