"It's been wonderful working with Sesame Street to bring their
characters to life through 3D printing, through the collaboration
between Sesame Street and the MakerBot Design team. We are thrilled to
announce the release of their most popular and cherished characters, Big
Bird, Bert and Ernie, Elmo and Oscar the Grouch," said Jenny Lawton, CEO
The MakerBot Digital Store Sesame Street Classics Collection will join
previously released 3D printable Sesame Street characters such as Mr.
Monster and Yip-Yip
on the MakerBot
Digital Store. MakerBot's secure streaming functionality allows
users to purchase and 3D print these collectible models without hosting
files locally. For those who love Sesame Street characters but don't yet

for purchase at the three MakerBot
Retail Stores in New York, Boston and Greenwich, Connecticut.
