I purchased two sets of these. One for me and one for my 2.5 yr old granddaughter who lives on the west coast. I use them to help keep her attention during webcam calls. She enjoyed creating her own puppets. She loves hers and takes them everywhere she goes. My family enjoys the puppets as well. There are small pieces, so little ones need to be supervised. We now look forward to our coast to coast puppet shows.

I purchased this toy for my 2.5 year old and 4 year old daughters. They loved the Alex brand animal bag puppets (a great value!) and I thought these would be fun. The puppets had a strong chemical odor that left me with a headache. Very little that my girls could do on their own....too few embellishments. Overall, not so much fun and pricier than I feel was appropriate.

Neat concept and all but it took us all of 10 minutes to put all 3 sock puppets together and I really don't think they're going to last all that long. Everything except the hair (which is sewn on using the provided needle) just sticks on with little pieces of double sided tape. It's also very difficult (even with finger nails) to get the paper off the back of the stickies.

All in all, it was fun for the time it took to make them and they'll be fun to play with while they last, but I wouldn't buy them again.

got this kit for our 2y 3m old daughter. she LOVES them. We had a lot of fun making them. she needed help but was able to do a lot on her own. Once we were done decorating them, she loves when we animated them. i guess this was simple old-fashioned fun. We have a few dog puppets but she is not that interested in them. In contrast these three guys r so cute and so lively. she love it when they give her kisses and jump and talk. These puppets convince her to do stuff that at the moment she did not want to do. we already used them to help us clean up toys and eat dinner and go to bath. Interestingly our 10m old son also thought they were fun. i think he though they were real.

The kit has all you need to make the puppets. the box comes with 3 socks and many other parts. the socks are actually simple socks with out a heal. but i guess if your really wanted to put them on u could. there are a lot of parts(odd shapes) that can be used to decorate the puppets. i think we only used half of what we got. most of the stuff is stickers with very very strong glue. i wanted to move a sticker after we put it on and it was a major pain to take it off. We have not washed them yet so i don't know what that will do to the glue.

My six year old got it for Christmas and we had a lot of fun putting together the puppets. There is a lot of extra dress up material so we were able to make more than just the three included socks.

I've been buying puppets for my young (2 and 4 years old) and these are the worst. Very flimsy and cheap. I gave them two stars because the kids did have fun making them. But they fell apart afterwards.

For whatever reason my 5 year old has been on a sock puppet kit. I suspect a fellow kindergartener brought one in and she has been hooked on the idea of sock puppets (even tricking me into making a remedial one because "we have to have one for school tomorrow"). As a last minute christmas idea, I found this kit and decided to give it a try. In the past I had been disappointed by the make at home kits (paint your own pottery, make your own necklace), but this kit is a real gem! It comes with 3 socks in awesomely vibrant colors, 6 large yarn poms (to use as hair or whatever else you can think of), googly eyes and LOTS LOTS LOTS of stick on accessories. The socks are super soft, and the stick on accessories (fins, tongues, wings, dimples) are super easy to attach. The resulting puppets, are very cute, super durable and overall a ton of fun to play with. These can easily be assembled by even tiny hands, but the large pom hair should be done by an adult as it requires using a large plastic needle to attach. I highly recommend this kit to even the uncraftiest for its ease of play and overall fun factor. I will be buying another one to tuck away for the next snowstorm or bad weather stretch. Happy Socking!

Very fun sock puppet kit! It comes with lots of different options for decorating, more than you could use. It was a big hit with my almost 3 yr old and a 10 yr old at the same time. I would recommend gluing some of the pieces to make sure they stay on better (we used plain old elmers school glue and they have lasted for a couple of months so far). Overall fun and not any more expensive (or less expensive) than running around trying to find all of the supplies at a regular store.

The socks are super soft and this comes with plenty of felt stickers to decorate. At first I was concerned that the felt pieces wouldn't stick well but we haven't had any trouble with them falling off. Overall, a fun craft.

Grandma sent this toy to my daughter for her 6th birthday, and I sat down with her, my 3 year old, and my 1 year old and helped them each make a puppet. It was a BLAST. The only thing that really required adult help was getting the pom-pom on, using the included plastic needle, but other than that, they were able to stick everything on themselves. They have spent so much time playing with them, and--granted--the 1 year old has pulled the eyes off and some of the stickers off, but we've stuck them back on alright. Three months, and still playing!!
