I’ve always loved puppets. They are so fun and you can create your own little world with them. My boys are 7 and 5 and have amazing imaginations, so I knew they would love these puppets. I was so excited when they arrived. I got the pig, rooster, shark, goose, enchanted tree, monkey in a barrel, hedgehog and the rabbit. They are insanely gorgeous!! Beautifully detailed and so soft. These are not the scratchy plain puppets I remember from when I was little lol. My boys went gaga over these! They got a lot of stuff for Christmas, some really expensive nice stuff too, but they want these puppets to play with every day. They make voices, tell me all kinds of fantastical stories, and put on shows for me and daddy. We all especially like the enchanted tree, his eyes move up/down and side/side, and the boys get a big kick out of that. They’ve named the pig Wilbur (from Charlotte’s Web). My 7 year old loves the shark, he likes anything to do with the ocean. These are their favorite toys hand down right now. We have several more picked out for them for after the new year. I love these!
