We have the new Folkmanis Hermit Crab puppet in stock. We are glad to get this in because living on an island, we get lots of customers coming to enjoy the beach and take long walks looking for sea shells. A momento from Langley was often one of the hermit crabs that Folkmanis used to make and discontinued. It was smaller than this new Hermit crab puppet.
The Folkmanis Hermit Crab puppet was released January 2010. You put your hand in the shell and crab from underneath to move the crab in and out of the shell and move its legs. The crab does not completely remove from the shell but comes out quite a ways. The puppeteer can really get their hand into the puppet and move it. The design of the shell and crab is very realistic with white shell with stiching and printed designs and the orange crab with quite real looking legs.
Add the House for Hermit Crab children's book with this puppet.
