Beautifully made and designed large (65cm) puppet
This puppet is ideal for using for sign language, teaching finger spelling, using with pre school children
to sing action songs and general story telling with children of all ages.
These puppets really do create a fun learning environment. Offering amazing dexterity, with an amusing facial expression or lively gesture, these puppets instantly come to life.
You can fit an adult hand in each of her hands, so she can be used for lots of different actions. You can put your hand inside her head and make her mouth move as if she is talking. She is absolutely wonderful for role-play with children.
Is also a valuable tool that can be used to get children to express their feelings. Would make a great addition to any toy room, or would be good for parents, teachers and therapists to use in their work with children.
Each Living Puppet has it's own character with a lovely friendly face.
'Gerrit' is made from a soft, smooth material, giving him a tactile charm which makes everyone (both young and old!) instantly want to pick him up and cuddle him!
The user inserts one hand into the entrance at the back of the head in order to work the puppet's mouth (you can move the tongue too). These soft mouthed puppets are extremely easy to use, giving full mouth movement and plenty of head movement. The puppeteer can also use their other hand to move one of the puppet's large hands and arms while working the mouth. You can also use both hands and arms for picking things up, sign language, role-play etc. The hand-holes are large but elasticated, so will suit hands of all sizes.
