Special Christmas Give-Away - Red Octopus Puppet!

There are many unique, odd and even somewhat bizarre creatures in the world and the red octopus is definitely one of these, so when I saw where Folkmanis had selected the red octopus as one of their new puppets for this year, I was interested in reviewing one. Happily, they sent it and now I am able to give it away!

Red Octopus Puppet
Manufacturer - Folkmanis
Ages - 3+

Favorite Features -
  • Fits like a glove - literally! You can put your hand it in and move your fingers to get the octopus to "move"! Fun puppet!
  • I love the colors used to give it the red look
  • Tag has interesting information about the red octopus; did you know they live off the Pacific coast from Alaska to Baja? Did you know they can change color from red to brown to hid or to attract a mate? Did you know they eat crabs and other crustaceans or mollusks? Did you know they are intelligent and use shells as tools, exhibit individual personalities and are playful? Did you know they have three hearts? One heart pumps blood through the body while the other two pump blood through their gills!
  • Has eight movable arms. Each arm is operable with printed suction cups on the underside.
If you have a grand child who loves puppets and sea creatures, the Red Octopus Puppet would make a fun and unique gift for them! And, if you have an adult family member who uses puppets to teach children, this could make a surprising gift for them as well! This is a beautiful and unexpected puppet from Folkmanis and I'm happy for the opportunity to give one away (USA only)! If you'd like to be in the drawing for the Red Octopus Puppetwhich will be on November 23, 2013,  please comment below to let me know if you have followed on Google Friend Connect, followed by liking on facebook with the tab in the "Find us on Facebook" box ON THE BLOG or at this link (not just 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 (please let me know if you share). This will help me be able to draw names from among people who would like to win the Red Octopus Puppet 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!
