In 1984 Milton Bradley produced a series of four Muppet Babies 60 piece puzzles with photos of the puppet characters. Shown above is the Baby Kermit Puzzle, below is the Baby Fozzie puzzle. There is also a Baby Piggy puzzle and one of Piggy and Kermit on a swing. Milton Bradley followed this series with a set of puzzles based on the animated TV show.
This is a Muppet Babies Colorforms playset from 1984. The side of the box has a photo of several of the actual Muppet Babies puppets including Baby Animal. This is the first time that I ever saw the puppet version of the character in any Muppet merchandise or TV show, as Baby Animal wasn't in the baby scene from the Muppets Take Manhattan movie. It wasn't until 1987 that the actual Baby Animal puppet was seen in a TV show, The Muppet Family Christmas special. Baby Animal and the rest of the Babies puppets are also seen with Steve Martin in an issue of Muppet Magazine.
This is a complete set of Muppet Babies squeeze toys made in 1984 by Hasbro/Playskool.

This is a large button pin that staff at McDonalds restaurants wore in 1986. As these figures were so popular, this is the second time that the Muppet Babies PVC figures were sold, which explains why the button says "They're Back" at the top. Baby Animal was added to the collection at this point, and there are some small variations to the figures. For example, the figure of Baby Gonzo is wearing shoes in this series, while in the first series he does not have shoes.
This 12 inch Baby Animal plush toy has a silver baby bonnet hood to match his gloves and feet. The yellow tag says "Baby Animal Daredevil".
Here is Baby Miss Piggy by Dakin from 1988. This is a 12 inch doll, measured from head to foot. It looks like she's supposed to be a ballerina.
This is the 1988 Baby Fozzie by Dakin which is also 12 inches tall. It looks like he's dressed as a clown with frilly cuffs on his neck, sleeves and legs.
In addition to plush toys, Dakin produced a series of hand puppets in 1988 that were sold exclusively at the Muppet Stuff stores. A set of Muppet Babies characters were included in the series along with Gobo and Red Fraggle, a Doozer, and the adult/regular versions of Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy and Gonzo. These Dakin puppets are harder to find than the Dakin plush toys. The Muppet Babies set included Baby Piggy (shown above), Baby Animal (shown below), and Baby Fozzie. I have yet to see a Baby Kermit puppet though it's likely that one was made.
