These endearing puppets were a big hit with our testers who loved their facial expressions and clothing and that you could move their mouths and hair. They are a good size and our testers found it easy to operate the mouths. It was great to see the children develop their own plays with the puppets; this is brilliant for developing their literacy, creativity and story telling skills. As well as telling stories, the children also incorporated some songs into their play!
We felt that the puppets are a great vehicle for shy children to express themselves; some children find it easier to talk through a puppet, and they could also be used to get children to talk about tricky situations. This promotes important personal, social and emotional development, encouraging the ability to manage emotions and recognise them in others, by allowing them to role play or act out situations to make sense of them.

Practical Pre-School Testers said: The children absolutely loved these puppets. They are a very useful tool for storytelling, role-play, etc. They are extremely well-made and I liked them a lot. Very reasonably priced too. I would definitely buy these puppets and strongly recommend them to others.
