Bought every set! for puppets and puppet theaters

They are very colorful and soft. My tall adult teacher's hand fits, as do my 10 year olds! We had a lot of fun playing with them! I ordered all sets. The only downside is that the plastic tags holding the dolls in the packaging left holes and hooks in the fabric that remain permanent. Otherwise great product for the money!

Pros
  • Very good price
Cons
  • Modern

Happy with the dolls

I ordered them so my other children could play with the newborn without touching them and they fit perfectly. Children already enjoy playing with them and I can't wait to see the next child enjoy their puppet shows! They even drew little tails on their backs. The dolls are big enough for my hands. I look forward to using them!

Pros
  • Few competitors
Cons
  • Not bad

Hand puppets don't open their mouths

Which hand puppet doesn't move its mouth? I bought my granddaughter a LARGE giraffe from the same company and she loved it so when I saw these hand puppets I was like oh yeah. Big disappointment. I used to use hand puppets in my work, so I was unhappy when they didn't have mouth movements. I think I can just give it away. Very dissatisfied.☹️

Pros
  • An absolute legend
Cons
  • Only available in black

Cheaply processed animals but ok for small children

The dolls are very small and made for children's hands. If you are an adult man or woman of normal height, this probably won't work for you. The material is very thin and cheap. I think that's to be expected given the low price. My child is at least interested and smiles when he sees animals, he is 20 months old. Good for simple entertainment but poorly made animals

Pros
  • Decent performance
Cons
  • old

they are small and seem very cheap

NOT worth $20. Just no. Not worth 1€ for a set. My son is turning 6 and has been begging for some hand puppets. I was happy to find them online but to be honest they are small and seem very cheap. I wasn't expecting Gund quality but the quality of these dolls definitely weren't worth $20. If I looked at them in a store I wouldn't pay more than $5 for a set. Well I hope my son likes them. I bet they'll be ripped apart in less than a month.

Pros
  • good stuff
Cons
  • not sure

Funny dolls for stories, preliminary reading skills for a child.

A great way to teach story grammar in a fun way: beginning, middle, end of a story. The doll can "read" the story to the baby in her own voice while the mother holds the book in her other hand. Teaching your child the sounds of animals is a lot of fun. The monkey mates with Curious George, the elephant with Babar, the tiger with Tigger from Pooh. Works only with the imagination of the baby and the mother! Not safe for babies as they have their eyes sewn on but great with supervision. Melissa &…

Pros
  • GOLS certified
Cons
  • Useless features

Fun, well done and very cute!

I bought this set with the Farm Friends set for my daughter to play with and tell stories. she loves them She enjoys covering both hands with the animal doll and walking around the house making animal sounds. For Tiger she loves "meow meow" and makes him dance. These dolls are large enough to hold most adult hand sizes, making them comfortable to read while reading before bed. Like most Melissa and Doug stuff, the quality is really good and well made. If you want to wash them, I recommend a…

Pros
  • Nice to use
Cons
  • Expensive

To my disappointment, I could barely put my hand in the .

These dolls arrived today and I was delighted to use them to entertain my 1 year old granddaughter. To my disappointment, I could barely get my hand inside the doll (I have medium-sized hands at best). I couldn't comfortably keep her in the doll for a while. Although the ad says they fit most adult hands, I tend to disagree. I also disagree with two people who said an adult can wear them. Very disappointed as I loved dolls as a child and was so looking forward to them. Even if they are…

Pros
  • Free for educational purposes
Cons
  • Minor issues

Not as good as I had hoped

As many have pointed out, they are practically too small for adults but too big for a small toddler (2.5 years) to put fingers in the right position for their head and hands. Was hoping for fun play and interaction but due to limitations we can't really use it. The quality is mediocre, especially for an M&D product, and the strapping left large permanent holes in all the animals' bodies, front and back. You can't open her mouth to make her talk, so you can only move her head and arms. Compared…

Pros
  • Everything is great!
Cons
  • Good but not great
