      Ever since my three children received these puppets on a stick, they have been so enthralled. I love that these are well made, and safe for children 3+. The puppets are not really at all big, but are the perfect size for little hands. These would be amazing in a preschool setting for a creative play area.

        Leah loves Twinkle. Loves her hair the most. She tries to braid it, puts a barrette in it and even tried to cut it ut-oh. Rainbow Prancer is the perfect toy to encourage independent play. My granddaughter age 4 absolutely loves her puppets. I love that it is teaching her to play independently, use her fine motor skills and be kind. Rainbow Prancers mouth opens and shuts making her very entertaining. This would make a great stocking stuffer or gift.

          Comments about Educational Insights Puppet-on-a-Stick™ Rainbow Prancers (White):

          Every day I attempt to have my four-year-old find something she can play with by herself that will keep her occupied independently while her older siblings are in school. The longer she can play by herself, the more time I have to get other work done. Twinkle, a puppet-on-a-stick, has been a great starter for my daughter's imaginative play.

          The stickers let her personalize Twinkle to look exactly she wants to look. After she brushes Twinkle's hair, Twinkle is ready for her debut in whatever imaginary world my daughter chooses to create. When she tires of that, I can usually encourage her to put on a little show for me, while I continue to fold laundry or make supper. Overall, Twinkle has been a great choice for encouraging my daughter in creative and independent play while we both wait for her siblings to get home from school to continue entertaining her!

          I also like to think of what fun these puppets can be sticking out of a stocking this Christmas.

            I received Rainbow Prancers Puppet-on-a-Stick, White Unicorn for review purposes. My girls have a puppet stage they rarely use. However, my 4-year old loves puppets so I thought she's love this cute unicorn. They are really fun for imaginative play. We have a couple others as well, so now my girls can play unicorns together - so fun!

              Comments about Educational Insights Puppet-on-a-Stick™ Rainbow Prancers (White):

              I received Twinkle, puppet on a stick free to review. All opinions are my own.

              My girls are ages 4 and 6. As soon as they received Twinkle they immediately wanted to create a puppet theater to put on a show. It was exciting for the kids to have a "real" puppet. They are used to making their own, and this was the real deal to them. They started writing storylines and playing with Twinkle right away.

              Twinkle has 2 ways to manipulate the puppet mouth. You can use the lever on the back or the knob on the bottom of the stick. My 6 year old preferred the lever on the back, while my 4 year old opted for the knob. The youngest did have trouble operating the mouth while holding the stick upright. I don't know if this was because of her own development or if the mechanism was a bit tight for her. Either way, she still has fun with the puppet and plays with it in many different ways.

              My 6 year old loves to play with hair styles. She's not very good at it yet, but she loves to practice. Twinkle makes hair styling practice easy for her because she can place the stick between her knees to hold it in place while working on her styles. The rainbow hair is also a plus for her right now. "Rainbow" is her current favorite color. She just can't pick one!

              We haven't had the chance to use Twinkle in our homeschooling, but I do have plans for her. Twinkle is a great companion for interactive storytelling, giving the kids a chance to interact with the books we read. Twinkle also makes a great toy to bring along in the car, or while we're in waiting rooms.

              I would recommend Twinkle as a gift for a child. It is interactive and inspires creative play. It's a great prop for educational play as well.

                This is a super fun puppet to play with. It is made of a very strong plastic so I don't have to worry about it breaking. Also it is easy to wipe down and keep clean and free of germs. It is easy to operate for kids and they love the fun of talking thru a unicorn. The hair is super soft and hasn't gotten tangled or matted even with repeated use. Perfect for gift giving and educational play.

                  The Rainbow Prancers-on-a Stick Twinkle is fun and lets little ones be creative while using their imagination. Twinkle's hair is soft and easy to comb through for the littlest of hands. These fun puppets are more durable and creative than the classics. Twinkle is perfect for ages 3 and up.

                      This was actually the size I was expecting it to be. It's a hand held little puppet that has a lever at the bottom to make the mouth move. It's the perfect size for little hands. It's made of very sturdy plastic and I think it's super cute.

                        Twinkle is such a cute unicorn! You can make her talk by using the lever with your finger or by pulling the knob on the bottom. This opens and closes her mouth. We like this puppet at our house because my son's hand is always too small to make a hand puppet work. He likes holding the stick and doing puppet shows for his mom and dad. Using Twinkle helps him grow his imagination and pretend play skills. We also have 2 other Rainbow Prancers Puppet-On-A-Stick and they all play nicely with each other. This would make a fun present topper or stocking stuffer. Just picture it sticking out of the top of the stocking!!
