Never Made Muppets: Toy Fair Edition

For the past few years we've previewed all the great merchandise Toy Fair had to offer. Some made it to store shelves, while others didn't. 

Now that you've seen our report from Toy Fair 2015, let's take a look at some of the items we saw in Toy Fairs past that sadly never came to be. 

From 2013 we have this Kermit 8GB flash drive from Vivitar. It made through two different prototype styles but was never put into production. 

Last year Vivitar retooled and expended the line, but that didn't help. No stores bought them and when I asked about the Muppets this year, they said they didn't have the license. 
Some of Rubies Muppet costume clothing went through tweaks and were released as modified versions in 2015. Though others were left in the prototype phase.

Funko previewed Kermit and Miss Piggy Cupcake figurines in 2013:

These were planned to be released with the rest of the Cupcake Keepsake line, but after being repeatedly delayed, were eventually not widely produced.

Pillow Pets planned to expand their Muppet offerings with this Kermit key chain wallet in 2014, but I was informed at this year's show that they were never actually produced. 

Which of these items were you most looking forward to adding to your collection?
