Crafty Kids Puppet Kit Review and Competition

We took this set away with us on holiday, but as we had so much to do it ended up coming home again, much to the boys disappointment, as they wanted a dinosaur puppet friend to play with as soon as possible!  Now we have settled back into a more manageable routine we enjoyed making him yesterday.


With an RRP of £14.95 it seems incredibly good value, as you do not need anything else to complete your puppet project (everything is included, the glue, paint and paintbrush on top of the pieces needed to make the puppet).  


It is recommended for children 6+ and I think that is more to do with the complexity of the project rather than obvious safety concerns.  Both boys (aged 4 and 5) enjoyed the painting part and trying to help me with the glue (my table looks quite pretty now anyway!).


It is nice to make something together they can keep afterwards, am sure their new dinosaur friend will have some adventures of his own now.  Using the strings you can make it walk around, chomp on some leaves and help him explore his surroundings; it’s quite a flexible puppet so great for imaginative play.  He has had a few kisses and cuddles from youngest already, the strings do bring it to life!


I found the strings a little tricky to attach, I was not quite sure which went where, even though the instructions are quite clear, I seem to get mind block if I think something is technical and phase out!  But we got there in the end, when I concentrated.

These sets would make lovely birthday presents, as they have lots of choice to pick from.  My two are dinosaur mad so naturally they wanted to make a dinosaur but I am sure their nieces would like to get their hands on a ballerina or fairy.  
I like how they are educational, developing their creative and artistic expression.  The kit is also something enjoyable to encourage them to get them away from a screen and spend quality time with you or if its raining and your at a complete loss what to do with them for entertainment (half term is looming after all!).

Available to buy from Amazon but fortunately I do have one Puppet Kit to giveaway here (the winner can pick one from the six available options, a fairy, a ballerina, a Knight, a horse, a giraffe or a dinosaur).  The competition will close on the 7th of June, just complete the rafflecopter to enter.

    something I could do with all the grand children. Brilliant idea as a
