The Nugget x Sesame Street collaboration brings to life two friendly neighborhood monsters: Elmo and Cookie Monster! From their beloved characters to their mission of helping kids grow smarter, stronger, and kinder, the Sesame Workshop perfectly aligns with our own mission of growing imaginations. This partnership sparked creativity and imagination in our designs, inspiring new and unique design features. These Special Edition Nuggets are our first mixed-material Nuggets, with a patterned microsuede on each Nugget’s thin cushion, and double-brushed fabric on the thick cushion and pillows. We also included applique character faces, also a first for Nugget, to bring each character’s personality to Nuggeteers’ homes.Both the Elmo and Cookie Monster Nugget offer a Nuggety interpretation of the beloved Sesame Street characters – including fun incorporation of other Nuggety hues. Read on for our favorite Nugget color combinations and comparisons.
Elmo Loves Colors
Elmo loves many things: birthdays, his goldfish Dorothy, sharing a snack with Cookie Monster. Another thing Elmo loves? Colors! The huggable, lovable Elmo Nugget pattern was inspired by the iconic building blocks that children all over the world love to use for imaginative, open-ended play, and we couldn’t resist incorporating fun colors throughout. Some of our favorite Nuggety color combinations include:
For those wondering how the poppy red-orange Elmo color compares to other Nuggety colors, it’s more orange hued than our jewel-toned Broadway red, and more vibrant than our earth-toned Rodeo and Redwood. And while Starfish is a true coral, these two colors both share a brightness that brings cheer and fun to any home!
Me Want Cookie Monster Nugget!
One of the benefits to befriending Cookie Monster? He’s always got snacks! The tossed pattern includes a playful layer of colorful sprinkles, overlaid with – what else? – Cookie Monster's favorite scrumptious snack. If you look closely, you may even find a sprinkle on the cookies... om nom nom nom!Warmer tones and neutrals play well with the Cookie Monster Nugget – almost as well as cookies and milk (we had to)! Think Brightside, Starfish, Redwood for warmer tones, and Koala and Harbor for neutrals. Some of our favorite pairings are:
When it came to creating The Cookie Monster Nugget, we were drawn to one of Sesame Workshop's cooler, lighter blue options. Depending on how you've encountered Cookie in different settings, you may notice a range of Cookie blues — we love the way our microsuede fabric looks in this particular shade of cyan.
Snorkel, our splashy aquamarine, is brighter and more saturated than Cookie Monster’s blue, while Lagoon is a deeper, calmer shade of blue.
