2010 HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE WITH GIVEAWAY – Melissa & Doug Deluxe Puppet Theater And Make Your Own Princess Puppet

Melissa & Doug Deluxe Puppet Theater

I wish I had one of these puppet theaters instead of a big cardboard box back when I was a kid. What a stage! It’s show time and time to play pretend with the Melissa & Doug Deluxe Puppet Theater.

This high quality, floor standing set is bound to inspire dramatic play, creativity, and vocal expression. Watch children ages three and up bring their favorite characters to life and listen to the stories they tell. This sturdy wood stage has non-toxic coatings, non-tip base, theatrical graphics, curtains, chalkboard, and a clock. Assembled it is 52″ L X 24.75″ W X 18″ D and big enough to fit a puppeteer or two and some 14″ puppets (sold separately).

Priced at $89.99, this prop can be purchased in certain Target locations, many online retailers, and through Melissa & Doug.

Melissa & Doug Make Your Own Princess Puppet

I fell in love with the hand puppets reminiscent of Henson’s original characters. I decided on the Make Your Own Princess puppet. After all, what child could ever resist the invitation to make one of her own? This ready-to-decorate pretty princess marketed for ages three and up, is soft and flexible, measuring 8″ diameter and 12″ high, and built to resist the effects of time. Packaging includes two wigs, two dresses, jewelry, and accessories.

Priced at $29.99, I know Princess is going to steal the scene. She is be a great companion to Doug & Melissa’s theater set. Possibilities are endless for cooperative play with friends with more puppets. Check her out at local retailers like Toys R Us, Target, and Walmart as well as online.

Be sure to check out Melissa & Doug on their blog and on Twitter.
