Christmas Review & Giveaway - Pelican Puppet from Folkmanis

One of the many things I love about Folkmanis puppets is the variety of puppets they offer - and they continue to release new puppets every year! Who would have thought a pelican would make a fun puppet, but after seeing Folkmanis' Pelican Puppet, I have to say, this is a great puppet! It is plush, surprising and fun . . . and I'm very happy to say, it is part of my 2016 Christmas Giveaways!

Pelican Puppet

Made by - Folkmanis

Favorite Features -

  • Soft, plush and more than just a puppet!
  • Realistic design
  • Attention is given to quality, design and detail - this is a wonderful puppet!
  • Fun creatures = unique puppets
  • Pelican has a "fish" which fits in it's mouth - adds to the fun!
  • Encourages imagination!
Folkmanis says; "Dive in for fun with the Folkmanis® Pelican PuppetRealistically 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!"

I 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 these two features 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!
