So I love me some puppets. Hand puppets in particular. So when I got bored I looked for really cheap hand puppets in some of my favorite licensed characters, which is how I ended up getting this guy on e-bay for a song.
It's a nice puppet, but I've been noticing a trend with hand puppets lately. If you don't need to move the mouth, if the head is a plush piece, then it is difficult to fit your hand in the head of the puppet. The stuffing doesn't allow any room to put your fingers to manipulate the head movements. It's like trying to push your fingers through a solid pillow.
Or maybe it's because this puppet was designed for children. Maybe.
