This swallowing boy puppet will provide more than entertainment and laughs. It was designed for the purpose of teaching and making learning fun!
This fun, yet educational puppet comes with a colorful sack containing special plush "cookies" inside. Children will learn about colors, letters, and numbers while having fun at the same time. Simply ask the child to "feed" the puppet the "red cookie" or the "number 4 cookie" etc. If you are working with a group of children, they will all have an absolute blast taking turns feeding the puppet! To make it even more interesting, have the puppet spit out incorrect cookies. You can even use your own cookies such as the magnetic refrigerator letters and numbers!
Another great idea is to teach children sign language! Since the puppet's hands are operated by putting your own hands in the "glove" area, this lesson becomes much more interesting for the child and will hold their attention much longer than just having to pay attention to the teacher alone. Sit the puppet on your lap and use both of your hands inside the puppet's glove area to demonstrate various signs. The educational possibilities are endless!
A must have for any toddler classroom, library, or playroom!
Simply insert hand into the slot in the puppet's back to operate the mouth and "catch" the cookies as they are being fed.
