this is a great toy for those families that engage with their children - not really for the 'tv set'. my children and children I teach love "prudence the purple puppet" and will spend a long time decorating her while I talk as prudence - or sometimes poindexter. S/he, the puppet, thanks each child for each ear/eye/whatever added and the kids giggle and talk back while cooperating together to decorate. Lots of fun. once decorated, they each will put on their own puppet and we'll have conversations. I can see why the velcro is a bit weak (lint, pulling back off) but it is a smidge annoying when poindexter's horn falls off in the middle of some serious dance moves.

I purchased one for each of my boys. Ages 2 and 4 for Christmas. I thought they would love it because they could create their own monsters, and...it's a puppet! I liked that it was something different, but they didn't. They never play with them or show any interest what so ever. I have played with it (to try to get them to) and noticed that the velcro that holds the pieces on isn't very strong so they don't stay on. Also some of the fuzzy pieces get stuck in the velcro so won't attach to the puppet itself. I was disappointed. I thought for sure it would be a hit. Not one of them liked it :(

Comments about Melissa & Doug Deluxe Make-Your-Own Monster Puppet:

I am a 35 year old married woman without children, so I'd say that I am probably not the target market for this toy. However, I am a huge Muppet and Jim Henson fan. I am also an artist and generally creative person, so this make your own puppet is right up my alley. When I first opened the gift, I thought it was something that was pasted or sewn together. When I realized that this was a velcro kit, I loved it even more. It can be changed around or kept the same for long periods. My nieces and newphews were visiting when I received this gift, so I was able to play with it with children and they absolutely loved it. They got such a kick out of pulling off limbs while the monster would get upset about it. Or the monster asking where did everyone go when they took away his eyes. I highly recommend this for creativity, ease of use, imagination building, and just plain fun. The only thing I could possibly suggest is to make add on packs or additional colors, but that's really just extras.

      My son can't get enough of puppet play. So how great is it that he can now help create his own monster puppet design? We just bought this for my son for Christmas and I cannot wait for him to play with it! Melissa and Doug puppets are durable, creative, and help encourage the imagination.

        I don't know why I hadn't bought this toy way before now. My 6 year old hasn't put it down! We have lots of toys, and not one has brought more fun and creative play for all who enter in this house. For ages 0-80! We have had so much laughter with this puppet! For both boys and girls.

              My kids (ages 3, 4 & 8) love this puppet. the Velcro works well. The orange fuzzy piece doesn't stick well because the hair covers the velcro but other than that a great buy.

                My 2 1/2 year old son is into the Muppet Show so when I saw this, I thought our family would get a kick out of it. He loves it! He and his Dad love to play with puppets together but Elmo and bears don't have anything on the voices they make up using this puppet. It's also calmed his concern about monsters to be able to play with this one and laugh.

                  Never would have thought this would be so popular. Both my kids (now 3 & 5) still play with this toy two years after receiving it as a gift. Plan to give it to others.
