Good Fun, bright colourful and well made.
I use them to amuse by 18 month old granddaughter especially when reading animal books with her. When talking about the Zebra (or others), to see one pop up over the book always brings a smile from her. They are though a bit small for adult hands, I can only get thumb, index and second figure in but fine for a child.
These little puppets are perfect for little hands
These little puppets are perfect for little hands. We have others of bigger size I use to perform theatre for my son and he is so deligthed when I gave him the Zoo friends, so he can do the same as mum. They are easy to manage for a kid size hand, there are also light in weight and simple (their mouth do not move), so children know straight away how to use them. They are really cute and soft. My son likes when I cuddle them against his cheeks (although they are a bit small for my hand).
big hit with 14 month old
Soft materials, well made. My granddaughter loves these puppets (especially monkey). Some reviewers have posted they are too small for adult hands but i find, with my small adult hand, if I put middle three fingers in head of puppet with thumb and small finger in hands they work perfectly.

Adorable puppets in
Our nine month old grandson adores the elephant. He is trying to put the puppets on his tiny hands. Expensive gift.
Cute puppets
Really cute and loveable, made for kids hands, I struggle a bit to fit my hands in them, but maybe I have to give up being a kid myself
Fantastic little puppets.
Fantastic puppets. Very soft lovely fabric. My little boy loves them. Also great gifts and minimal packaging.

Reviews

Great puppet - especially for the budding ventriloquist!
My 10 year old son is really enjoying playing with this puppet. He's a boy who usually enjoys computer games, so it been a great way to encourage him away from the screens! He enjoys practicing his ventriloquist skills, and I almost feel as if this puppet is another member of the family, with his own personality and voice! It's a good size - on the small side, I would say, but still large enough to sit on a lap. It also fits neatly on a bookshelf when not in use. My son is getting much more use out of this than I thought he would. Overall highly recommended!
Great to use with and for the kids. Safe and solid build
I bought this because my son, in P1, was being taught with puppets at school. I thought this would help. To be honest, he uses it better than I do and thoroughly enjoys teaching his little sister with it. Even though it's small, it fits into an adult hand fine and can sit. You can move the mouth and thumb and little finger go into the arms. Very good build, so I'm happy with my kids playing with it, eyes are fixed well and mouth is articulated. Very happy with purchase
Wonderful Fun
We’ve had some really good laughs with this puppet, bought for a very funny adult. Well made and easy to use.
