3D Print Bert and Ernie, Elmo, Big Bird & More – MakerBot Launches 5 New Holiday Themed Sesame Street Characters

Can you tell me how to get — how to get to Sesame Street?

As we’ve seen, MakerBot can tell us the way to get to this beloved childhood street! Since May, MakerBot has been teamed up with Sesame MakerBot_logoStreet to offer favorite characters for purchase and print — and now there’s more.

Joining the wonderful cast of characters from series one and two, series three of MakerBot’s Sesame Street characters includes five new models. All of these models are available via the MakerBot Digital Store and MakerBot Retail Stores in Boston, MA; New York, NY; and Greenwich, CT.  MakerBot’s CEO, Jenny Lawton, is excited about the ongoing relationship.

“It’s been wonderful working with Sesame Street to bring their characters to life through 3D printing,” Lawton said, “through the collaboration between Sesame Street and the MakerBot Design team. We are thrilled to announce the release of their most popular and cherished characters, Big Bird, Bert and Ernie, Elmo and Oscar the Grouch.”

As though these characters aren’t already wonderful, they’re also in the holiday spirit! Each character in the new Sesame Street Classics Collection comes with a “winter accessory” to complete their festive cheer. In keeping with their characters, each has a themed accessory. Elmo is wearing a Santa hat (green to complement the red character) while Big Bird holds a big wreath. Bert and Ernie, a legendary pair, are bearing gifts for one another. And, in true grumpy form, Oscar the Grouch has decorated his trash can for the holiday season… with a festive ribbon holding a big sign stating “Bah Humbug!”

With one download, you can print as many of these figures as you want — fill every stocking with Sesame Street cheer! Each of the five figures can be downloaded for $1.99, or all five for just $7.99. Each figure and its accessory snap easily together, though MakerBot recommends that you use a little bit of craft glue to keep the pieces more securely together.  The characters, once printed and assembled, are of a decent size, with Big Bird measuring almost 15cm in height.  The assembly will be a project in its own, but a fun one for the entirefamily.  For instance the Bid Bird model consists of 26 separate pieces which need to be snapped together, and will take approximately 12 hours to print in total.  Out of the five new characters, the Elmo model is the easiest to assemble, and quickest to print, consisting of just 12 pieces, and taking about 6 hours of print time.

Now (in the best list I’ve had the pleasure to put together in a while), you can 3D print the five characters in the Classics Collection along with:

  • Mr. Snuffleupagusbird3
  • Honker
  • Yip-Yips
  • Two-Headed Monster
  • Guy Smiley
  • Cookie Monster
  • Grover
  • Frazzle

The addition of the new characters expands the Digital Store’s holdings of licensed characters, is what is sure to make a great do0it-yourself holiday gift for those Sesame Street-loving children in your household.  Let us know what you think of the Sesame Street characters — and which ones you hope will appear next — in the Sesame Street Characters forum thread at 3DPB.com.
