Muppet Kids was a series of books and educational software made in the 1990s, featuring young, pre-teen versions of the principal Muppet franchise characters.

Characters included kid versions of Kermit, Piggy, Fozzie, Gonzo, Scooter, Skeeter, Janice, Rowlf, Animal, Bunsen, Beaker, and Bean Bunny.

The character designs were often reminiscent of those from Muppet Babies, but aged slightly.

Two series of Muppet Kids books were made by Muppet Press: a paperback series and the hardcover "Values To Grow On" series.

The educational software featured several mini-games hosted by animated, non-speaking Muppet Kids. Each game focused on subjects like basic reading, maths and sorting. Newer versions of the software also feature 3D animated versions of adult Kermit, Fozzie and Gonzo.

McDonald's produced a limited series of Muppet Kids Happy Meal toys in 1989, featuring Kermit, Piggy, Fozzie and Gonzo riding tricycles.

An alternate kid version of Kermit was featured in the movie Kermit's Swamp Years.
