    The Nitty Gritty
  • T-Rex puppet perfect for pretend play
  • Two ways to open and close mouth
  • Wipe-clean surface
  • One of 3 prehistoric Puppets-on-a-Stick
  • Collaborators: Brent Geppert (creator) & Jess Miller (sculptor)

    Brent is a big fan of the puppet show, incorporating puppet play into his parenting whenever possible, to the delight of his two sons. His favorite dino, (little) hands down, is the T-Rex. Jess's long-time love of dinos inspired her whimsical design of the Puppet-on-a-Stick Dinosaurs. The Velociraptor is her all-time favorite, even though it is more closely related to the modern-day chicken than a terrifying predator.
