Special Birthday Month Giveaway - Folkmanis Pelican Puppet!

Over the years I've had a wonderful opportunity to share with you some of the great puppets from Folkmanis Puppets . . . and I'm so happy to say they have sent me another box of puppets to review. One of them is part of my Special Birthday Month of Giveaways - the other three will be donated to Caleb's kindergarten classroom in the Fall. So, today I'm very happy to let you know about some new puppets from Folkmanis!

Folkmanis says; "Dive in for fun with the Folkmanis® 
Pelican Puppet. Realistically designed with shiny, wet-looking "feathers" and large webbed feet, you'll love the whimsy of her 'swallowing' mouth with a wiggly fish snack attached. Scoop up this hilarious water bird before it flies off store shelves! Yes, you "herd" right; a new Bleating Sheep Puppet grazes in Folkmanis pastures. With her sweet, comical face and soft, silvery fleece, this is one puppet 'ewe' will surely love. Animate her mouth as you gently squeeze her body to hear her bleat. A curious creature from down under, the Folkmanis® Koala Puppet is a plump and fluffy cuddle buddy ready to snuggle. Animate head, mouth and forelegs as you imagine climbing trees and eating eucalyptus with your new furry friend. Play can sometimes be exhausting, so take a break and catch your breath with the Folkmanis® Panting Dog Puppet. With a gentle squeeze to his body and a hand working his mouth, bring this soft and shaggy canine to life in your loving arms."

Panting Dog Hand Puppet  |  FolkmanisI love puppets! They encourage imagination and interactive play! I also love plush toys - they can be comforting and a stuffed toy often is a "first friend" to many children. Folkmanis combines the two for amazing plush toys which are also puppets! Plus, they often choose unique creatures - like a pelican - to make into puppets, which just adds to the fun! When this box of puppets arrived, my grandsons were here - they gave their enthusiastic approval to all four!
