Product Description What's for dinner? Just ask Chef Alfredo 'Al' Dente for the special of the day! Use one hand to manipulate the puppet's mouth and facial expressions while gesturing with the removable wooden rod with the other. Detachable rod is suitable for lefties or righties! It is made from material that's both durable and incredibly soft to the touch. This quality construction and a strong interior structure for the head mean it will hold up to years of creative puppet play. The classic white chef's hat is made to stay put on the expressive, mustachioed Al Dente, while the detailed white chef's coat and red bandanna have self-stick tabs and are removable and machine-washable. Puppet play inspires countless creative stories and amazing imaginary adventures. It's terrific for self-confidence and also an invaluable booster for motor skills, hand-eye coordination, communication skills, parent-child bonding, and so much more! A removable hand rod attaches to either hand of the puppet, making it simple for both left-handed and right-handed puppeteers to practice and develop their story-telling skills. This versatile classic puppet is appropriate for puppeteers of varying skill levels and helps develop narrative and creative thinking. The Chef Puppet with Detachable Wooden Rod makes a great gift for kids ages 3 and up. Add the Melissa & Doug Deluxe Puppet Theater to round out the hands-on, screen-free puppet play experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Puppet Ever! This puppet was a gift for my 1 yr old from my sister. It has been a great source of entertainment for everyone. My husband has been performing puppet shows non-stop with 'Alfredo' for our sons and for our nephews over the web-cam, as they live in Alberta. We discovered my husbands hidden talent for puppeteering, lol. He has made us laugh so hard until we cried with this puppet. We have thoroughly enjoyed him so far and think he will bring many years of entertainment to our family. We hope to get 'Alfredo' some friends in the near future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Little sister problems! First off, WE Love our Chef puppet! My nephew named him "Chef Chris P. Bacon"..haha We've had nothing but fun, until little sister discovered markers and decided to color on Chefs jacket and hat. The hat isn't that bad. PLEASE, tell me you sell replacement jackets!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Will be looking forward to buying more puppets in the future I like the Chef. I am sure my grandson will love it. He is really into puppets. He is getting it for Christmas. Can't wait to see him put on a show with it. He has quite a few puppets and wants more. I am sure I will be getting more in the future. Very please with how fast this puppet and the police officer were shipped to me. Your service was great.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not for weak hands I recently purchased two puppets, the chef and the female doctor. They are cute and seem straightforward but once you try to manipulate them it's really hard. I had a hard time making the mouth open and close, needless to say my children have even a harder time. I wish they were easier to use!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I wouldn't buy again I'm really sad to write this but I feel I have to I bought chef for my 6 year old he has a lot of trouble getting his hand in the puppet also after only 2 weeks of having it the stitching started ripping I would recommend a redesign to fix the issues so this won't happen again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I wouldn't buy again The product says 3+ years I have a son that's 6 years old and he has a lot of trouble getting his hand in the puppet and also he only had it for 2 weeks and the stitching is ripping apart I think it's a great puppet other than that I would recommend a redesign.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I will definitely buy more of these puppets! My 10 year old son asked Santa for puppets for Christmas. "Santa" bought him the chef puppet and the police officer. He loves them! Our 12 year old son even plays with them. I love watching them use their imagination to make up skits. Great purchase!
