Wooden Collapsing Thumb Dancing Push Puppet Animals
This toy is just like those you had when you were a kid. The base of the toy is a hollow cylinder that has has a spring plunger in the base. On top is a wooden beaded animal figurine. When you push your thumb under the colored base to push it up it makes the strings go slack and the animal wiggles, dances and completely collapses (depending on how hard you press). Release the pressure and watch as they pop back up again because the strings go tight again.
- Frog - 5" x 2"
- Alligator - 4.5" x 2"
- Giraffe - 7.5" x 2"
Not only are these charming animals fun, but they are also a great way to build hand strength. When kids push and release the plunger they are using tiny muscles in their hands and fingers!
