Review:
A stunning plumage is just one of the magnificent features of this puppet. Designed for optional bi-manual operation, the head can be manipulated with one hand, while the fingers of the opposite hand can slide through any of the eleven openings to flaunt the tail feathers. The creative fabrics glisten and beckon youngsters to experience either stories or playtime activities that might correlate with this visual feast. A printed folder-tag offers information about peafowl, along with an abbreviated Chinese folktale about how the peacock became so colorful.
