Special Christmas Giveaway on November 20, 2015 - Sea Lion Pup Puppet

One of the things I enjoy the most with my grandsons, is seeing their imaginations. I love when they tell me a story they made up, or grab a toy and pretend, so I appreciate the opportunity I've had over the years to review puppets from Folkmanis - my grandsons really enjoy the puppets and I get the opportunity to see their imaginations flourish!

Today I'm happy to share with you one of the new puppets in the Folkmanis line-up - and announce it is another of my Special Christmas Giveaways for 2015!

Sea Lion Pup
From - Folkmanis Puppets
Ages - 3 years +

Favorite Features -
  • Soft and snuggly - fun to play with as a stuffed toy and as a puppet!
  • Attention to design, detail and quality - all excellent!
  • Especially wonderful for children as it's small size is great for their smaller hands.

Folkmanis says; "Full of new life and ready for fun and adventure, this Sea Lion Pup hand puppet from Folkmanis is ready to explore the wide world. Animate the mouth and fore flippers of this lovable marine mammal to see what tricks this clever critter can perform. Ideal for use in interactive stage and puppet theater, Folkmanis Puppets are also great for teaching, daycare, school, pretend play, games and parties, or to pair with a book for storytelling. Easy to feed and care for, just add lots of love and snuggly fun. This puppet measures 11 x 8 x 7 inches."

Not only cute, this little Sea Lion Pup will make a fun friend for a child to play with for years to come! This puppet is soft and cuddly . . . the perfect friend! Folkmanis sent this to me for me to take a look at in exchange for me writing my opinion of it . . . and my opinion is, this is a great puppet! As I mentioned already, since it is smaller, it is perfect for younger children as their little hands will fit nicely in this little puppet. If you have a child you love who loves Sea Lions, this puppet is sure to delight!
