This puppet became alive the moment I slipped it onto my hand and showed my 4 year old boy. He instantly fell in love with her, telling her stories, showing affection towards her, and wanting to play with her all the time! I have to stop writing now, as I've been requested to "do that girl" again!
My son loves pirates and to receive this, the policeman, and the fireman were a pleasant shock from his gammy (grandmother). He laughs and plays with them for the longest time - he is 4 and has special needs (delayed ecolalia and apraxia of the speech - possible ASD) so for him to pretend with the puppets it is an absolute joy to see.
I started my son out with "Harry" the puppet when he was 1.5 years old hes almost 4 now and Harry is a great friend to him. When something big happens in my sons life he grabs Harry and says "do Harry dad do Harry". My son is nearly bursting with excitement and anticipation while I put Harry on. Then he tells Harry all about his adventure. Its a great way to connect on a level with your child outside of parent and child. Now you are able to see friend and child, and you have the opportunity to have that friend teach while playing too. We love Harry so much hes in our Family photos, and one year we did a pumpkin carving of Harry. Thans Melissa and Doug for a great product.
