Alert and eager, this adorable rodent sits hoping for cheese, or maybe it would rather keep you company at your computer? With big ears and a movable mouth and arms, he's a small fellow who will be a big favorite. Good for age 3 & up. Full-bodied stuffed animal puppets help bring characters to life during storytelling, make excellent teaching tools in science and nature curriculums, and dazzle audiences during puppet performances. Even shy children open up to interact with these lifelike animals, and older children can develop manual dexterity and exercise their imaginations while learning to manipulate the puppets. The realistically designed and heartwarming creatures also make wonderful companions for allergic or elderly people who are not able to care for real live pets. Each puppet in the Folkmanis? line comes with a hangtag listing facts of interest and/or a story or poem from folklore or literature, featuring the animal. Originating in 1976, Folkmanis Incorporated is still a family business, and consistently garners top awards for its design excellence.
