SALT LAKE CITY-Vandor is adding Sesame Street tableware and a line of eco-friendly cups and plates made of bamboo to its portfolio of licenses , and is extending its drinkware offerings.

The Sesame Street license includes all-time favorite Muppet characters, Elmo, Big Bird, Cookie Monster and Oscar the Grouch, who will be featured on Vandor’s regular and insulated shopper totes, 14- and 18-ounce Tritan water bottles and oval-shaped 18-ounce ceramic mugs.

Vandor’s new line of bamboo cup and plate sets is made from bamboo fiber and corn starch. Licenses featured on four-cup sets are Star Wars, Disney/Mickey and Friends, My Little Pony and Marvel. There is also a child’s dinnerware set which includes a My Little Pony plate, bowl, mug and utensils.

Vandor’s line of drinkware for home and travel is being extended as well. Heat reactive ceramic mugs, which change design when a hot beverage is added, are being introduced in a 20-ounce size. Licenses featured on these mugs include Mickey Mouse and My Little Pony.

“This summer, we are excited to add a license with universal appeal and to offer bamboo products for people who would prefer this alternative,” said Lynn Keller, Vandor’s licensing director.
