    Comments about Pete the Cat® Puppet-on-a-Pen™:

    My kids love this pen. At first I was not familiar with it but once my kids saw it, they knew exactly who Pete the Cat was. It was a great conversation starter. They sang songs that they sing in class. Songs that I have not heard of so that really made me happy. I would never have heard the songs or stories about Pete the Cat. Again, this really engaged a great conversation with my kids and I. Thank you Educational Insights!

        Comments about Pete the Cat® Puppet-on-a-Pen™:

        I am a preschool teacher and my students love "Pete the Cat". This puppet is great for engaging the children in the stories and working on language/literacy skills as they retell the story and sing the songs. The pen part would be difficult for preschool children to manipulate so would not use.

        Fun and sturdy

        Comments about Pete the Cat® Puppet-on-a-Pen™:

        My son really enjoys this pen! He usually doesn't like writing, but Pete the Cat makes it more fun! :) He has also enjoyed playing with the puppet. I like how sturdy it is. Most fancy pens/pencils don't last very long at our house, but this one is doing great after hours of use!

          Comments about Pete the Cat® Puppet-on-a-Pen™:

          This pen is cute and great for any Pete the Cat lover. My younger students loved opening and closing the puppet's mouth to sing along with the Pete the Cat books. My students were all eager to have a turn using this puppet. We did not use this as a writing utensil. I think it is somewhat large and top-heavy, which may be difficult for some of my special ed students to use, especially those that already have fine motor weaknesses. Overall, I think this product is cute and a great supplement to the books. The uses for this product are somewhat limited, as the pen/puppet only opens and closes its mouth and writes. However, if a child has a great imagination, they could really get creative when playing with this toy.

          Comments about Pete the Cat® Puppet-on-a-Pen™:

          I'll keep this short & sweet:

          We love Pete the Cat. This is a very sturdy little puppet. My preschool students thought that animating Pete by opening/closing the little mouth was loads of fun.

          The pen part didn't matter to us. I like that this puppet was small without being tiny, but it was heavy enough that I can't see writing with it too much. It might be motivating for an older student who enjoys the character and writes more at school or home.

          **I received this from Educational Insights to try out and review, but this review reflects only my own thoughts and opinions!

            We received the puppet pen for review and it's the one item all my children were fighting over. They have taken turns using it in puppet shows, practicing writing, gags in school, as an incentive for writing homework, and my older son has reserved it for sleepaway camp letter writing. It is not very ergonomically correct for young writers as most pens aren't but it isn't top heavy like I expected. The pen locks in open or close with a push down tab and uses ballpoint ink. We all get a kick out of amimating Pete's mouth.

              This is a great gift for any Pete the Cat lover! My kids love reading Pete the Cat books, so they were delighted when their received this puppet pen. I liked how the pen did not come with an easy to lose cap but came with a secure button that locked the pen inside (no ink stains in my purse!) The kids loved making Pete's mouth move while they sang songs from the books. It motivated my reluctant writer to practice letter writing using this pen!

              We received this pen from Educational Insights as part of a play panel. Our kids (4 and 2.5) have had so much fun taking turns with it! Our 4-year-old loves practicing her writing with it and our 2-year-old loves making scribble drawings and using the puppet feature. It is a little bit awkward and top-heavy, but overall it's super fun.
