In October 1958, the Wilkins Coffee company offered vinyl puppets of Wilkins and Wontkins, characters created by Jim Henson for Wilkins commercials. The puppets were sold through the mail for $1.00 and a coffee can label.

These were the first Muppet toys produced, eight years before Ideal Toys made the first Kermit the Frog and Rowlf the Dog toys in 1966.
