Details

Tina Prima takes center stage to pirouette and plie in her satiny leotard and tulle tutu. 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.

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 Ballerina 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 2 out of 5 by from I don't think I would buy this product again I bought this puppet last year and I thought it was great, so I wanted to buy another one. While I was looking at it, a review caught my eye, about the mouth being incorrect on one of them I couldn't quite understand that. I ordered it, and the mouth on this one is not correctly aligned, as well, there is a space between the upper lip and the bottom of the nose on my original one. On this one, the upper lip is practically attached to the nose. It just doesn't look right and the mouth doesn't manipulate properly. Unfortunately, I had already discarded the packaging. I feel that the verification department might not be as fine tuned as it should be.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I lvoe it, my children love it! These are very well made puppets and so nicely detailed, that my girls love to cuddle them as well as make up stories with them. I have a dragon and a ballerina, but was tempted to buy the whole set as you can really make up interesting stories with them. It's a great alternative to dressing up - but also extends that type of play too as we now have a dragon and ballerina along with a witch, fairy and princesses. The whole family (yes dad included) gets involved to make up and live the stories.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic quality! Very pleased! My granddaughter was blown away by this puppet and so was I. Packaged very well and beautifully made. She couldn't put it down and played all day with it trying out her ventrilaquist skills. I was not able to find a professional style puppet anywhere else. Melissa and Doug came through again with the perfect gift!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Adorable This Ballerina Puppet is adorable, well made and has a very expressive face. The outfit is beautiful and the puppet is easy to operate. Our three year old Grand-daughter has a vivid imagination and will spend countless hours making up stories with her new best friend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yes yes. Kids love them I think this is my daughter's favorite!!! I think these puppets are made very well. I have to tell my kids to take it easy with them. They are rough but the puppets are great quality or one of the arms would have been ripped off it they weren't.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I would recommend this puppet Her outfit was adorable very fun to pretend to be a ballerina and a princess. The only problem was her mouth was crooked. The other puppets I bought were perfect maybe it was just the one I got.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great puppet not so good packaging! Great product. Too many items were squeezed into the shipment, the packaging affected parts of the puppets and had to spend time to strenghten them up. Otherwise wonderful product.
