Imagine getting a ghost delivered wth your pizza. You could if it were 1995 and you were ordering from Pizza Hut! Here is Casper the Friendly Ghost, along with the Ghostly Trio: Fatso, Stinky and Stretch in soft vinyl finger puppets. The various characters measure 5 1/2″ to 7 1/2″ tall each and are made of soft vinyl. These are very expressive designs and a lot of fun. This type of vinyl is not very color stable, so Casper is still white, but the Ghostly Trio’s light blue color has changed to varying degrees, from bluish to greenish. See photos for color reference. The polybags are clean, with minimal wear on some of the printing. They have been opened but not played with.

1995 Toy Story Burger King Hand Puppet Pals Set of 4 mint
1995 Toy Story Burger King Hand Puppet Pals Set of 4 mint

Manufacturer: Disney / Burger King
Condition: Mint condition
First edition vintage collectables

When Toy Story was released in 1995, Burger King was the exclusive quick-serve restaurant where the toys were available. The Toy Story hand puppets were realeased one per week over 4 weeks, and if you didn’t get there on the first day a new puppet was available, they were almost always gone. I visited multiple BK’s just to get a set of these amazingly detailed Toy Story hand puppets. Made out of several different types of polyester- smooth, soft, plushy, each puppet has it’s own textural feel.

11” dancing Woody- Put your fingers in his back pockets and make Woody dance!
10” Buzz Lightyear- Your hands go into Buzz’s back, and your fingers go into Buzz’s arms to make him wave!
15” Rex – Your hand goes into Rex’s back. You can push out on his chest, wave his head and make his feet move!
8” Hamm – Put your hand inside Hamm’s tummy and all four fingers into his feet to make him walk!
