(They did release a new array of plush Yummy World characters, retailing at $5.99 and $14.99 depending on the piece) Throw a pair of eyes and a smile on a bagel and voila! I guess if I were a huge waffle fan, I'd maybe pick up a waffle Yummy World plush...although I'd likely prefer an actual waffle that I could eat and wouldn't tease me with its lack of edibleness.

(Luckily the Amphibian Man is not anatomically correct)
