No'man is a Muppet camel on Iftah Ya Simsim, the Kuwaiti co-production of Sesame Street. He is a full-bodied Muppet, and the Iftah Ya Simsim equivalent of Big Bird.

During the 1990 invasion of Kuwait by Saddam Hussein's Republican Guard, the costume was stolen. As of August 2009, it hadn't been recovered.[1] For the 2015 revival of the show a new costume was built.

Prior to the 2015 revival, he was named Nu'man.[2]
