I ordered these puppets for my grandson. I was disappointed that these puppets didn't have mouths that opened and closed. I thought they were colorful but not particularly engaging

They are very very cute and colorful but mouth don’t move, you can’t make it “talk” and they are very small for adults.

I buy these puppets for my girl dog because she loves a super soft baby to snuggle, and the tiger and monkey are her special go to babies. They are very well made and hold up to her love for a long time. I have even purchased extras that I put away in case they ever stop making them.

A good set and a useful play/tool for communication. I have to keep buying because they keep traveling to parent's homes from grandparent central.

Given as a holiday gift! I know as a parent using puppets is a fantastic and effective way to communicate with young children. I like the size of these puppets very much! This is a gift for my grand daughter she is only 4 months old.

Does not for my hand

Only only only purchase this if you are getting it for a child. I am a classroom teacher, and I could not get my hands inside it without it being uncomfortable. Disappointed due to fact that only tiny hands (toddler/child) size can fit inside of the puppets. Also the months do not move. :(

Purchased for my 2 year old granddaughter. Good quality and adult hand fits to promote interaction between puppets/people. She might be a little too young yet. This is a toy that she will grow into.

These were really cute, but I was disappointed that their mouths don't move. I often make little videos for my 3-year-old granddaughter who lives a long way from me, just to stay close, and my skits would be so much better if it actually looked like they were singing or talking.
