All the world is a stage and the Zebra Stage Puppet by Folkmanis Puppets is stealing your spotlight! Trust us, you should let this plush zebra puppet be the center of attention. Here's why. First of all, it's a hand puppet and you're not. This zebra puppet can't stick its hand in your neck and make you talk but you can stick your hand in it and make it jabber endlessly. Hopefully you have something funny to say. Need another reason? It looks like a real zebra and you don't. It's got all of the realistic markings and colors that you lack. Face it, you're stuck looking like a human. Everyone has seen a human talk and, frankly, it gets kind of boring. A talking zebra, on the other hand, never gets old. Get it? On the other hand? It's a puppet. That's the kind of comedy gold that you can churn out when you perform with this zebra puppet. You're the brains, it's the beauty. That's why this zebra stage puppet needs to be in the limelight while you work your fingers to the bone backstage. As awesome as it looks, it doesn't have a brain or comedic timing. You do! If the stage puppet fits, wear it. Listen, they say that it takes a village to raise a child. You are not a village and luckily no one is asking you to raise a child. Just put this zebra hand puppet on and be funny. Apart, you are just a person and a puppet. Together, you're magical! As with the entire line of plush stage puppets by Folkmanis, this zebra puppet is durably constructed to withstand numerous puppet shows, story times, and the expected demands of quality playtime. These fantastic puppets meet or exceed all U.S. safety standards and are recommended for ages three and up. We suggest surface washing with a damp cloth or towel to keep your plush zebra puppet looking its best.
