I've purchased, I think, eight or nine of these puppets for my autistic son, plus their kit for making his own puppet. For the first two or three that we received I truly had the thought, "Man, we must have gotten lucky and the person making this one was having a good day!" but have now come to see that every puppet is is made on a good day.

They look really cool, are the perfect size, are made really well. I'm one of those people that believes that you get what you pay for so am still a little queasy when paying so little, but in this case you just simply get much more than you pay for. I swear that that's true.

I think it's important to try and put honest pros and cons in the reviews, but despite trying really hard I can't come up with any cons. They are packaged well, shipped quickly, beautiful, high quality products...man, I can't really find anything to criticize.

I feel really good every time I give them my money and I can't imagine ordering from another company that might compete with Melissa and Doug's on anything comparable.

(Edit: Any time I read such a one sided review I assume that it was probably written by someone from the company selling the product. I'm not associated with this company in any way beyond being a happy customer. Honest.)

This puppet is made very well, very nice details, with the gold trim on the coat and the purple cape. His face got smashed a little during shipment, so hopefully his mishapen nose and face will get back to normal through use. The crown gets smashed down a little too, of course, after being smooshed into a package for shipment. But it's really cool to have a puppet of muppet look and quality to use in your own home with your kids! The wooden stick that inserts into either hand is a really fun addition to make him more animated. You can't beat the price at 13$, that's great!

Seriously, how can you go wrong with Melissa & Doug. I bought a Melissa & Doug Puppet Theatre for my Grandkids, and so of course, I had to buy the puppets too! I bought the Princess, the Knight, the King, Cheerleader, Mermaid, Dragon, and the Pirate. Wow, have we had fun! Great quality! Great costumes! Great prices!

The best! They are an amazing quality. They hold up well to constant use and the fabric is a good quality. The stick in the hand is great for dramatic puppet gestures, but is removable and velcros back I when you want to use it again. My son started collecting these when he was 5 and has the chef, king and surgeon. At 7, these are still a favorite toy. He loves putting on puppet shows with his friends.

I agree with the other reviewers on the "mouth" being difficult to act with. What is interesting is that we have 9 puppets and this model in particular is difficult to use. Others (like the chef) are not. The difference seems to be that the king has a significantly different shaped head with a more "protruding" chin. The problem basically seems to be that my thumb does not have as much room as with other puppets (other puppets your thumb actually extends past your fingers). With your thumb positioned slightly behind your top fingers, it tends to be slightly uncomfortable.

However - this issue has not caused much complaint for me. If I was performing for Broadway - maybe I would want my money back, but for now my 3 year old doesn't know the difference.

I bought four of these for my 4 year-old niece for Christmas. She LOVES them! Her mom was worried she wouldn't enjoy them because they weren't "princess-y," but she took to them right away. Her older brother and cousin enjoyed them a lot, too. It was also a lot of fun for the adults to jump in and help put on a puppet show.

I love buying these, too, because they don't fit into the princess norm of gifts and they help her play a little outside that world.

I buy Melissa and Doug products all the time and never are disappointed. This was like a sesame street puppet. Larger than most puppets and the kids seemed to like that better. I bought six of these puppets for the grandkids and we are planning on buying more to add to the puppet shows in the future. Kids really use their imaginations. Puppet was really well made, I was surprised it didn't cost more.
