Puppet Theater by Melissa & Doug


If your family is into theatrics, this toy will take center stage. A puppet theater, like this one by Melissa & Doug, will become a venue for hours of puppet fun. Puppets stimulate speech and learning and help babies, toddlers, and even school-age children learn about grown-up life. You can buy puppets representing all kinds of animals and people, or you can make your own puppets, like Santa, Rudolph, and a penguin.
