Fun Puppets and a Give-Away!

On my other blog I reviewed a number of puppets today - I'm talking about safe toys for the church children's ministry - and I'm giving two away. So, I thought I'd share the puppets with you today, too . . . and give another puppet away! Folkmanis is one of my favorite toy manufacturers - they make the most amazing puppets which are so plush and huggable - they are great stuffed toys, too! Check these puppets they recently sent me for review -

Mini Alligator - this puppet is also available in a large size  . . . if you have grandsons, they are sure to love these gators! My grandsons think they are wonderful; in fact, my one year old grandson took one look at this Mini-Alligator and put a huge smile on his face, began growling ferociously and brought the gator to me so it could growl at me! The mini-alligator is 9 inches long and is a finger puppet.

Grizzly Bear - this is another puppet which my one-year old grandson LOVED! He loves bears . . . and growling like a bear! This grizzly is soft, plush and is sure to get lots of "hug-time" from your grandchildren! The grizzly is 15" long - the perfect size to be a "friend" children can play with for years to come!


Alpaca - This is a large puppet with soft fur/wool. What a gentle, great puppet for a child to love as a "friend" or use to encourage their imagination as they put on their own puppet shows! I'm giving one of these away on my other blog. This unique alpaca puppet is an impressive 19" long.


Tuxedo Cat - soft, snuggly and sweet, this cat puppet is also a plush friend young children are sure to love! At 21" long it is the size of a real cat and is great as a toy for children to play with!


Baby Sea Otter - this fun little friend is one children are sure to love! At 12" long it is a smaller puppet - perfect for a child's smaller hands! This is the other puppet I'm giving away on my other blog!


Screetch Owl - this puppet has a special hidden rod which allows you to turn it's head - like a real owl! It even looks like it has feathers! Whether you are teaching your grandchildren about the wonderful creatures God created or they are using itt to put on their own shows, this little owl is sure to get a lot of attention!


Sky Dragon - this beautiful puppet is one which will certainly encourage the imagination of your grandchild! At 22 inches long, this puppet has wings and arms which move - as does it's mouth! Josiah and Caleb both love this one - Caleb of course had to smile and growl with it and Josiah wants to make up a story about how this dragon is a nice dragon!


Leopard Shark - measuring 22 inches long, this shark is one which will encourage imagination and curiosity in your grandchildren! It is a great option for boys and older grandchildren, too!

Any of these puppets would make a wonderful addition to any child's puppet/stuffed toy collection! I'm very happy to say not only did Folkmanis send me puppets to review, but they sent additional puppets for me to give away (USA only)! On April 1, 2013 I'm going to give away one Screech Owl puppet,so if you'd like to be in the drawing, please comment below to let me know if you have followed on Google+, Google Friend Connect, followed by liking on facebook with the tab in the "Find us on Facebook" box ON THE BLOG (not just by liking the post) and/or have followed grandma's cookie jar by email. For each of these which you have done you will receive one entry. In addition, if you "share" this post, you'll receive an additional entry for each "share" (please let me know if you share). This will help me be able to draw names from among people who would like to win one of these puppets and it gives you several ways to enter the give-away! Thank you for reading grandma's cookie jar and for sharing it with the people you know!
