Bert's Dancing Shoe

Boy, it's been a while.

I want to share something with the public. For 6 years, I have own a piece from one of my favorite streets, Sesame Street... Live! Yes, I have a prop or costume piece from Sesame Street Live. I received it in 2008, strait from VEE Corporation.

Since I was little, I was a huge Sesame Street Live fan. When I moved to the states, from Puerto Rico, I wrote a letter to VEE Corporation asking them questions about their Sesame Street costumes. Keep in mind at this point in my life I was 12 years old. In the letter I ask questions like "How does the mouth work?" "How does Big Bird work?" "Can I OWN a costume?" Again, I was 12. A few months later, they happily replied. They answered every question I wrote and sadly they told me I could not own a costume (sad face). But, they sent me a costume piece, Bert's shoe. Being a 12 year old I was super, duper happy! Even though it wasn't a whole costume, it was part of a costume. Plus it came from my favorite Sesame Street characters, Bert.

To sum things up, I din't buy it on eBay, or stole it; I got it from VEE Corporation, and I have the letter as evidence. I will not be posting the letter (because is to personal to me) but take my word for it. I don't have any plans to sell or trade Bert's shoe; so don't ask.

I will be posting pictures of Bert's shoe, so I can share my blessing with everyone. If you have any questions about the shoe, please let me know. Email sammy_puppeteer@hotmail.com

FIY: The reason they sent me Bert's shoe is because this particular shoe did not meet the performing standards. Meaning that the shoe was not flexible enough for the performer to dance. Instead of throwing it away, they gave it to a child, me.
