My toddler loves these! They are all super soft and look exactly as pictured. I’m really happy with this purchase. I got these as part of a lightening deal sale and they were totally worth it. As an adult, I have no problem fitting my hand in these and my 2 year old can also put her hand in and control the head, but can’t quite

I am so glad I bought this for my little one. He started watching TV when he was 3 months old and would love cartoons. We learned that it is not good for children to watch TV, it is recommended to keep them away until the age of 2-3yr. So I had to find something to keep him off of TV while feeding.So glad I found this hand size puppets

we used these puppets recently at an event we had for kids and there were quite entertaining. my daughter had a Winnie pooh story book collection. I chose one and I created our own play based on that story! I also used a tri fold presentation board to create a stage. It was very much fun for us and for the kids.The only reason I dropped

These are decent and i quickly ordered them as the brand is well known, but i didn’t realize that the puppets have no mouth. Isn’t that like the main point with puppets? Maybe it’s just me but i was disappointed that these didn’t have mouths, they’re cute but my daughter doesn’t care for them

I wear an adult male medium sized glove and my hand barely fits inside. The torso or the body of the puppet is very short and there is no hole to support the head. So head tends to bobble. My kid also had trouble using it. Not the typical Melissa and Doug quality, def feels like it was manufactured offshore to keep costs down. Will not

Very disappointed in this product. My daughter loves puppets and it’s something we do together. She loves when we both wear puppets and have them talk. Unfortunately, these puppets are tiny! They would fit a four year olds hands but do not fit my seven year olds hands and definitely do not fit adult hands. When we are playing they fall

So I bought this for my 12 year old son for Christmas. When it arrived a week or 2 back, I briefly peaked in the box and saw that it was Kermit green, was satisfied, and tossed it in the closet. Fast forward to just now while I'm doing some wrapping. I just pulled Kermit out of the box, and found him in the MOST hilarious pose...His arms

He loves them. He got into them because of SML on youtube, of course. He really wants the main puppet from the show but of course they charge like $250+ for the Jeffy model, when he's literally made the same as these ones. I'm glad these are reasonable

Always move Melissa and Doug products!! They are made well and always so cute!! My kids love these fun puppets and they are sure to bring out the imagination!! Lol. The stick broke on one of them after a cousin was a bit brutal with it, and it left a pretty jagged end, so if you have rough young ones, watch out for that. We repaired it

I bought (2) of these (this one plus jose the hispanic) for my 11yr old son as he is now a fan of puppets. When we got them i was very surprised on how well they were made and also how life-like (in a cartoon kind of way) and how much detail went into them. They are very adorable. My son has yet to put them down and i keep waiting for

This is a very nicely built hand puppet. However, the price they are asking for is not justifiable.I was disappointed when I opened the package and held the puppet in my hands as it was not constructed in a way that made it worth the price.For $33 I expected something with a little more weight and sturdiness to it.If anything, this

Bought this for my son who absolutely loves owls and he loves this puppet owl. He doesn’t play with it every day but he is 7 so he isn’t very easy on his toys and this has lasted a month so far. There is a dowel that you hold to move it’s head. The wings have velcro to hold the wings together. If your hands are big enough you can

This is a wonderful puppet. I like the size, as it's not too large, and the ability to turn the head is really fun. I knocked off a star for two reasons. The first picture shown shows a bit more subtle coloring on the plush as opposed to the more Dalmatian like coloring of the puppet I received. I also was disappointed to find that

I first saw this owl at Barnes and Noble and my child loved it. It was pricey so I searched online and found this one which is seemingly the same but less expensive. We ended up being gifted the one from Barnes and so I compared the two owls. This amazon one looks faded and squished up (could just have been packaging and shipment) and

This is the perfect and cutest little Elmo puppet! I noticed some people said that the mouth was too firm and wasn't able to move very well but that's an easy fix. All I did was kind of open up the mouth thumb to stretch it out a little bit. It was only so tight I believe because it's never been used and it's brand new but once I didn't

We needed a swamp critter for a daily Bible School sketch. We named this little guy Hopper. He was the highlight of VBS! (We used Cookie Crisp cereal as "cricket cookies" in the photo.)

I bought this puppet for my 1-year-old niece. She really adores it. When she sees the frog her entire face lights up, she gives it hug, and pats it on the head. The arms move really well, the eyes are big and shiny, and the mouth can open and close easily to give kisses or eat snacks. All of these features are essential for a good

These hand puppets are DETAILED! I really appreciate the design of these puppets because most hand puppets are flat and only think about the front of the puppet. These hand puppets have designs on both the front and the back, and they also are stuffed in the heads so they feel more "real" for imaginative play! They are also just so, so

With their oversize soft squishy heads and tiny little arms they are a bit cumbersome, but I manage to put on some daily epic renditions of old MacDonald that my son loves. He’s actually just starting to put his hand in them, still he prefers me to do the singing and acting much to his never ending joy.Good craftsmanship, everything

They might have changed the overall design, but my dragon puppet only goes halfway down my forearm. I can only fit two fingers into the upper half of the mouthpiece, which means my hand gets cramped after more than a few moments.I'm not a big burly man either, just a mom.However, it is the perfect size for a child.
