We forgot to mention last week how much we love Melissa and Doug puppets and plush toys too. Melissa and Doug make traditional stuffed animals as well as some innovative puppets with occupation themes.
Check out, for instance, the Melissa and Doug Fireman puppet. Perfect for kids over three years old, this contemporary take on the ancient art of puppetry is made traditionally, with a wood rod inside for guiding hand movements.
Other fun puppets include: a chef, a surgeon, a construction worker, and the ever popular Melissa and Doug Cheerleader Puppet.
