Review:
Who says it takes two to tango? This dragon allows one young puppeteer to engage in a solo “tango” (be it dialog or duel) because of its two heads. In contrast with a typical “two-headed beast,” this puppet has one head on each end of its 42-inch serpentine figure. Each head has a workable mouth that includes a fabric finger pocket in the tongue. With some pre-planning, this tongue could recoil, then “breathe fire.” The super-soft stuffing offers great flexibility in puppet maneuverability. The contrasting colors of the two dragons (purple on one end and green on the other, with shiny silver or gold embellishments) add great interest to this unusual character, beckoning hours of fun for both play and story time.
