Product Description

Four adorable hand puppets make up this family-friendly collection—an excellent play set to help kids and caregivers role-play together! Four simple glove puppets with an animal theme make it easy and so much fun to act out scenes, practice new vocabulary, and spend quality time playing together. It’s great for building motor skills and self-confidence, too! Made with brightly patterned, washable fabrics and built to last, these soft and sweet hand puppets are sure to be go-to toys for years to come. This Melissa & Doug puppet set offers multiple ways to enrich the pretend-play experience. Parents can ask kids to identify each animal and then replicate its sound. Kids can describe the colors, patterns, and other details of each animal. Parents can place one puppet on their hand and another on their child’s hand, using their puppet to ask the child’s puppet questions. The Melissa & Doug Zoo Friends Hand Puppets make an exceptional gift for kids ages 2 to 6. Add the Melissa & Doug Deluxe Puppet Theater to round out the pretend play experience and give kids another engaging option for screen-free fun. For more than 30 years, Melissa & Doug has created beautifully designed imagination- and creativity-sparking products that NBC News calls “the gold standard in early childhood play.” We design every toy to the highest quality standards, and to nurture minds and hearts. If your child is not inspired, give us a call and we’ll make it right. Our phone number is on every product!

5.0 out of 5 stars Bought every set!
By JD on August 9, 2016
These are very colorful and soft. My large adult teacher hand fits, and so does my 10 year olds! We had a blast playing with them! I ordered all of the sets. The only flaw is that the plastic tags holding the puppets into the packaging made a holes and snags in the fabric that are permanent. Otherwise great product for the money!
