Muppet Stuff was a New York City boutique located at 833 Lexington Avenue from 1980 to 1993. This was the only store in the world to exclusively feature Muppet, Sesame Street and Fraggle Rock products.

When the store opened in 1980, it was promoted in the Muppet Show Fan Club newsletter: "There is a charming little building in New York City on Lexington Avenue. The facade is brick with carved cherubs and arched window. It is wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling Muppet Stuff! At MUPPET STUFF everything that has a Muppet on it is available -- books, clothes, records, jewelry, toys, games and much more. New products are introduced regularly. MUPPET STUFF is located at 833 Lexington Avenue, New York City, NY 10021."[1]

Items from the store could also be ordered by mail through Muppet Magazine. In the back of several issues, one page was dedicated to products such as a Muppet Magazine t-shirt, plush dolls, music albums, toys and books. Special catalogues were also made available through the mail.

The 1984 documentary Henson's Place features a sequence filmed inside the Muppet Stuff store.

Later in the 80s, other outlets opened up in the US and Canada. By 1988, Toronto had a Muppet Stuff store located at 2588 Yonge Street on the corner of Albertus Ave. Another store later opened at Bayshore Shopping Centre in Ottawa.[2]
