We found him alone on a shelf one day and decided to bring him home from the store. Looked up his brothers and sisters here and decided that we made an Excellent Purchase.

After reading some of the comments about other M&D puppets looking "deformed" - I wanted to mention that these puppets are toys first, additionally they are $15 toys. They are not large professionally created "Muppets" - so don't set your expectations much over a stuffed animal. And no...they don't look like "real" people.

Overall - these puppets (we have 9) are made very well relative to the cost. They do not have strings hanging off of them and most have surprisingly good details like finger nails (on the dragon) and a detachable clothes (scarf and coat for the chef...the hat is not detachable). Each puppet even has it's own head shape and size making them even more diverse including the various outfits.

You just can't beat having your very own puppet troop for this price. I should note that we do not let our 3 year old "play" with these puppets yet. Instead we pack them away after each show. We think of these more as props for now until he is old enough to pretend himself...

FYI - if your chef's hat is a little mushed - stuff a little paper inside to "puff" it up a bit...

I bought the chef puppet last year while on vacation. Melissa and Doug make great, quality puppets at an affordable price. The chef puppet in particular is so good you might expect to see it on a TV kids show.
You work the mouth with one hand, and his arm with the other. Definitely worth buying for kids of all ages.

I purchased this puppet for my 5 year old. We already had the builder puppet and fireman puppet. These puppets have provided hours of amusement for the whole family. Promotes children to use their imagination (and adults too).

I got this puppet for my son and he loves it! He won't stop playing with it. He Named him Chef Palo. SO CUTE! I think it would of done better with two rods though.

My nephew loved it. I thought the puppet was on the small side and it should have come with two rods instead of one but it was a good purchase.

I purchased this for 4 year old son's 5th birthday. He loves it very much! He wears it to bed almost every night. It especially likes it when I animate the puppet & talk to him. His eyes light up & he calms down while he stares at the puppet. The puppet is made of very good materials. The clothing Velcros on & off so you can wash the Chef's white coat. Even the little red handkerchief comes off. The hat is strongly sewed on as is the hair & mustache. My son loved him so much I bought him the surgeon as well. I highly recommend these for any child that likes sesame street or the muppets or any type puppets.

My 7 year old daughter LOVES this puppet. Very well made, easy to use. She makes up funny personalities for Chef and uses her imagination more than she would with a stuffed animal. We also have the cheerleader and the baby. They seem to take a lot of rough play well, none of them have shown any sign of wear or tear. Great fun.
