This "Melissa & Doug" brand ballerina hand puppet is "Tina Prima." She is an adorable hand puppet, much like the ones used on the Muppet Show® in terms of size and how to make it move. One hand goes inside to make the mouth move and create facial expressions. The other hand operates the arms by using a detachable wooden stick, which works just as well for either a right-handed or a left-handed person. She is just over two feet tall, which is perfect for any child three-years of age or older. Puppets have delighted both children and adults worldwide for a long time and continue to put smiles on the faces at backyard barbeques or birthday parties.
Add her to your collection of other "Melissa & Doug" hand puppets until you have enough to invite all the neighborhood over for hand puppet practice and then put on a show!
