In the early 1980s, Synergistics Research Corp. produced a line of Sesame Street ball darts games with Velcro-covered balls. The first set, produced in 1980, featured two characters on the targets: Big Bird and Cookie Monster. In 1981, Synergistics produced a third target, with an image of Ernie and Bert.

Synergistics also made a set of Sesame Street Magic-Catch Mitts, with Velcro-covered balls that would stick on contact to the plush mitts. The mitts were decorated with targets held by Big Bird and Cookie Monster.
