Our each is a package of (2) 6-1/4” long, pink rubber octopus tentacles ready to slip onto your fingers. Manufacturer calls them “finger puppets” but we believe you’ll need more than a pair for any serious octopuppetry, so don’t get caught under-tentacled. (And in our humble opinion, (8) of these superglued to a rubber ball would be quite attractive.) Nice octopusal curl on the ends, too.
What’s the difference between a duck? One of its legs are both the same. That’s our favorite old joke here at the home office, and now you can prove it by having your very own super-authentic rubber duck feet to compare. In very duckish orange, they’re approx 3” across x 2” tall. You’ll get (4) and all you add is a couple of mallards.
Well, three puppets that each use all five fingers. OK, four fingers and a thumb. Stick a rubber foot on three fingers and a thumb, then pop the head onto your middle finger, and you’re a walking, talking panda, tabby cat or unicorn. You pick. And you do the talking, of course. Bound to amuse the kiddles, and probably give you hand-cramps, but who ever said puppetry was painless?
Just stick these 2-3/4" long rubber feet on your fingers and patter away. They’re puppet feet that have lost their puppets, and are super-accurate, with toenails, ankle bones and that little vein on the arch. You get (2) right and (2) left feet. Would make lovely gifts in bulk for the podiatrist in the family, or for folks who just, you know, like feet.
They could be finger puppets, but they could be hands in search of a mini manikin. Wherever they came from, they're 2-5/8" long in flexible pink rubber, and remarkably life-like in a ready-to-shake pose. You'll get (5) total: (2) right; (2) left: and one of one or the other. Some of us think they'd be an interior decorating breakthrough if you lined up (15) or (20) of them on the mantel.
We’ve taken a giant step in the finger puppet game with these Storytime™ sets. They’ll challenge your bedtime imagination, plus they’re all (save the beasties) elaborately costumed. You pick from: A Day at the Castle, with a king, queen, knight and droopy-tongued dragon; Musketeer Mates, with Athos, Porthos, Aramis and a happy horse (you be D’Artagnan); or the Jungle Story, with a tiger, monkey, a Dora-ish explorer in a floppy hat, and Tarzan, or maybe Boy. Advanced storytellers can get the royal family and Musketeers together for the first time. All of the actors are approx 4” tall.
These are either polyester-haired wacky puppets or the world's least attractive mittens. Either way, they'll entertain your kids. Measure 11" tall (long?) x 6-1/4" so they'll take any size fist. You'll get (3) in red, purple, green or orange (our choice), and some might even have sunglasses.
