The Swedish Chef's kitchen was the third playset released by Palisades Toys in honor of The Muppet Show's 25th anniversary. This playset had the most accessories and features, including cupboards with opening doors and drawers, a refrigerator and a stove with many working doors, and a telephone.
The Swedish Chef figure wore a blue striped shirt and a magnetic hat. The Talking Cake was based on a sketch from episode 120.
An exclusive Culinary Catastrophe Swedish Chef Action Figure was released later. In series nine, a Swedish Chef Action Figure was released, the figure included a basketball hoop accessory, which could clip onto the kitchen playset. The Chef figure from the kitchen playset set was also available at the Palisades Collector's Club for a limited time.
Originally, the playset was sold in a box that resembled the packaging from series 1-3. After series 4, the playset was sold in a box resembling the series 4 packaging.-muppet wiki
