Find out what’s cooking with this detailed and whimsical chef puppet! Chef Alfredo 'Al' Dente (nicknamed Noodles) is ready to give kids a 'hand' playing restaurant, kitchen, and more. Made from material that’s both durable and incredibly soft to the touch, the quality construction and a strong interior structure for the head allows means it will hold up to years of creative puppet play. The classic white chef’s hat is made to stay put on the expressive, mustachioed Al Dente, while the detailed white chef’s coat and red bandana have self-stick tabs and are removable and machine-washable.
Puppet play inspires countless creative stories and amazing imaginary adventures. It’s terrific for self-confidence, and also an invaluable booster for motor skills, hand-eye coordination, communication skills, parent-child bonding, and so much more! A removable hand rod attaches to either hand of the puppet, making it simple for both left-handed and right-handed puppeteers to practice and develop their story-telling skills. This versatile classic puppet is perfect for puppeteers of varying skill levels, and helps develop narrative and creative thinking.

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...
You work the mouth with one hand, and his arm with the other. Definitely worth buying for kids of all ages.
The perfect companion to a Luigi
and Mario cooking episode.
Puppet is supple and well made.
I have had it in the house with two boys for 2 months and its still in one piece
