This hand puppet set is perfect for educators, librarians, or anyone who works with children. Each puppet comes with a poem but there are so many other things that can be done with each puppet. These puppets help promote counting, story telling, literacy and creative thinking. Each hand puppet is an adult cotton glove. If you are getting them for children they fit my 3 year old. I use paint to create the puppet part of the glove. Item comes from a smoke free home. Item ships USPS.
