Wikkeez Kermit!

You may have already heard of Vinylmation, but last year Disney introduced new blind bag toy called Wikkeez

The first series consists of 53 characters including Kermit!

Who even gets a prominent place on the packaging!

According to the Muppet Wiki:
The series was first distributed in Israel under the name Disney Gogo's Crazy Bones; they were given away as promos for Strauss BrandDany Chocolate Pudding and Yogurt. Following this test run, the figurines were renamed Disney Wikkeez and subsequently sold in the UK and Germany. In the latter country, marketability was tested with blind bags of 30 select characters given out as promos at Rewe grocery stores during the 2014 Christmas season. The Rewe chain also offered collector's bags, collector's boxes and board games for the toys.

Each figurine is smaller then a vinylmation 1"- 1.4" and has no articulation.
