Our new full body, performance quality, ventriloquist doll style puppets feature an incredibly easy moving mouth. They also come with a metal arm control rod. For those who have no idea what that means (don’t worry, a lot of people ask!) the rod is a thin metal “wand” that simply clips to either hand for movement. This is how Muppet and Sesame Street type puppets are operated. Simply insert your hand into the slot in the puppet’s back to operate the mouth. By opening and closing your hand the puppet’s mouth will move. Bodies are poly-fill stuffed and soft making them lightweight. They weigh in at about 1 pound. These puppets are very durable and are made to last a lifetime. Our new 30″ puppets are highly recommended for both beginners and experienced puppeteers. Their mouths are easy to move and won’t hurt your hand, making them perfect for puppet ministry, school performances, talent shows, drama, theater, therapy, good clean fun at home, and more! Give them a try and we promise you won’t be disappointed! Recommended for ages 5 and up. Children under this age would enjoy having an adult or older child operate it and put on the show for them.
