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 and 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 and Doug Zoo Friends Hand Puppets make an exceptional gift for kids ages 2 to 6. Add the Melissa and Doug Deluxe Puppet Theater to round out the pretend play experience and give kids another engaging option for screen-free fun.
