In 2002, Lenox issued a Kermit the Frog Christmas ornament to commemorate the return of a Kermit balloon to the annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. Kermit is shown in front of a silver New York City skyline, holding a camera, next to a picture of Miss Piggy in a star.
In 2006 Lenox issued a "Santa Kermit Ornament" to celebrate Kermit's 50th anniversary. He was made from handpainted ivory china with gold accents. He wore a white Santa suit and carried a bag of goodies on his back. A similar "Kiss Me Kermie" ornament was also released, showing Miss Piggy under the mistletoe.
