Review:
"Pack rat" isn't just a term for people who hoard things. It's a real animal that gathers tiny objects for its nest. This charming oversized puppet comes complete with an actual "pack" (a Velcro-banded canvas sack large enough to hold several small objects). Although the opening for manipulating the mouth has a tight fit, it didn't stop our young puppeteers for a minute. The tiny legs are adorned with suede-like claws, and the fur and head features are convincingly realistic.
