Sesame Street Delux Puppet - Ernie / 65 cm


This is the genuine Sesame Street Ernie!

Living Puppets make the world's most amazing character puppets, and we're finally able to offer a genuine Sesame Street Ernie.

Elmo has a hole in the back of his head suitable for both adults and children. The size of the puppet provides amazing stage or performace presence. You can place your second hand inside either of Ernie's hands giving you control over his fingers and thumbs. The movement is easy, and amazing ... so your audience will be blown away.

Holding Ernie is like hugging a small child ... he's full bodied, plush and very high quality. Put this all together, and Elmo can be arguing with Bert in no time! He's just one of the most expressive puppets we have.

Puppets make great gifts, and Living Puppets in particular are gifts you'll never rehome. Puppetry itself fosters creativity, communication, and empathy in children, making learning enjoyable while enhancing social and emotional skills through imaginative play. Ernie is suitable for the home, but his quality and scale also makes him suitable for use with professionals in psychology, speech pathology, aged care, nursing, education and counselling.

There are four characters in this range including Ernie, Elmo, Cookie Monster and Grover.
