My niece was thrilled when she received the sock puppets kit for her birthday! She made them all in one day with her little sister. This was such a great gift to give an 8-year old as she is a very busy and crafty girl. Her mother is expecting her third child so it gave her mother a break from two very busy little girls one afternoon! I would definitely buy this product again for another child at this age.Thanks!Janet Moore
We got this for our 8, 6, and 3 year old kids. They loved it. It was a fun, quick activity. There are three socks, so it was just enough. There were plenty of little foam bits. Enough, actually, that we started decorating the [clean!] matchless socks we had in the sock basket. We have a Step 2 puppet theater and the kids had a blast putting on shows-for days!The downside is that the little foam pieces are a bit hard to pull off so it would be pretty hard for a child to do alone. We didn't mind though; it was a family activity.
