EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

The Paw-rrifics Dog hand puppet is an adorable, soft, full-bodied, stuffed puppet. It's designed so it can be used as both a cuddly, stuffed animal and a basic hand puppet. The lined pocket allows a child to operate the mouth of the puppet. The dog is fluffy with a charming face and a sweet quality that will appeal to kids, and the high quality plush is surface washable. The line also includes a Lion and a Fox.

Is It Fun?

Kids love puppets both for open-ended, narrative play and social play. Puppet play is the very definition of child-centered, creative play. What makes these puppets extra special is that they are full body; that is they have legs so when children aren't using them as puppets, they're super-charming stuffed animals as well.

Who It’s For

The Paw-rrifics puppets are designed for kids ages 3 and up. At that age, they will have a beginning understanding of the concept of puppets and be able to play with them. For younger-age kids, parents or caregivers can use the puppets to entertain babies. Older kids will be actively involved in creating characters and stories with these puppets.

What To Be Aware Of

The puppets are surface washable. The ones we played with shed a little bit at first, so it might be advisable to brush them gently prior to giving them to kids.
