Hand Puppet - Crocodile / AU made

$15.00

Who's lurking in the billabong?!

The crocodile is one of Australia's scariest creatures and isn't found down here in Victoria ... thankfully! They live in the rivers and estuaries of the Northern states and strike fear into campers and fishermen because they're silent! Imagine yourself at bedtime, on a long trip, or waiting in a long line ... you whip out the crocodile puppet and find he has a sore tooth, or a tummy ache and he wiggles his way onto your child's lap for a hug ... maybe he's not so bad? Be brave, have a go ... don't let puppets intimidate you. Kids typically react very well to puppets, and we're happy to show you a few tricks.

The Ocean Yuen collection of hand puppets includes a range of Australian animals. Designed and made right here in Australia, they make a great souvenir for visitors from overseas. The design of the crocodile puppet also makes it suitable for use in a school, library or kinder environment for imaginative play and story telling! In particular, the thickness and quality of the fabric makes them superior to the souvenir-style puppets available.

The crocodile puppet makes a great gift, and puppetry itself fosters creativity, communication, and empathy in children, making learning enjoyable while enhancing social and emotional skills through imaginative play. Its hole size is suitable for a small adult hand or child, and if you can reach, you can make its little arms wave about!
