Meet Rory Lion – he’s roarin' to be king of puppet playtime! Rory’s long mane give the lion a regal appearance, and soft claws look fierce, but feel gentle. Young puppeteers can use one hand to open and close the puppet’s mouth and change expressions, and the other hand to use the removable wooden rod to make the lion gesture. Top-quality materials and realistic details make this puppet a playmate that will stand up to the test of time. Puppet play is a wonderful way to make connections and to explore feelings and new perspectives. It helps build vocabulary, dexterity, imagination, and creativity! Detachable rod is suitable for lefties or righties.
