Folkmanis Mini Raccoon Finger Puppet in Stock

We also got in the new Folkmanis mini Raccon in Can finger puppet. This Folkmanis finger puppet is 3 inches long, 3 inches wide, and 5 inches tall (7.6 x 7.6 x 12.7 cm). The raccoon finger puppet is inside a silver colored garbage can with a lid so the finger puppet can pop up and down in the can. You move the puppet from underneath the garbage can.

Read all about the new Folkmanis puppets at Act II Books and Puppets.

This is a mini version of the large Raccoon in Garbage can hand puppet.

Folkmanis Turtleneck Turtle Puppet is Very Cute

We just got in several new puppets this week. One is the Folkmanis Turtleneck Turtle puppet. It has a moveable mouth and two front legs. The picture shows the turtle standing up, but it does not stand up by itself. If it could stand, then it would be 12 inches tall, 8 inches wide and 5 inches long (30.5 x 20.3 x 12.7 cm). This cute green turtle has a gray/green shell and a yellow turtle neck and underneath.

We have bunches of different turtles.
