My 4 year old daughter loves unicorns, so she instantly loved these puppet-on-a-stick. Not only are they adorable, the mouths were easy to manipulate, making playtime not so complicated. My 7 year old daughter also enjoyed playing with them too. This would make a great gift for the durability, colors and imaginative play time!

    Comments about Educational Insights Puppet-on-a-Stick™ Rainbow Prancers, Set of 3:

    My six year old daughter Paige loves all things that normal little girls love so of course that includes unicorns. Now unicorns and puppets is a new concept for us but what could be more magical?

    This Puppet-on-a-Stick set comes with three unicorns, or prancers as they call them appropriately named Dazzle, Twinkle and Shine. I didn't really know what to expect from this. I honestly saw puppet on a stick and expected some cheap wooden flimsy puppets. I never expected these giant beauties. They are huge!

    These are really well made puppets of a solid rubber like material with beautiful flowing air, google eyes that move around and a stick to hold them.

    The stick part is equally well made and there is a little lever on the back where they can pull down to open and close the mouth. My daughter pointed out that you can also just pull on the bottom part without pulling the lever and the mouth opens that way as well.

    The detail on these is wonderful and they thought of everything like painted on eyelashes and colored tongues and bright colors in their flowing manes. They even include sticker sheets for custom styling!

    I have to admit I wasn't sure if my daughter would be interested at first. I thought they might be a little weird. But she gasped when she saw them and immediately started playing and having them talk to each other in different voices. She knew exactly what to do! Imaginations are a wonderful thing!

        My daughter thought these puppets were alot of fun. She immediately wanted to brush the "dolls" hair and use them in imagination play. Because the toy comes with three puppets, my daughter immediately wanted to share and asked me to decoarte on of the puppets with the included stickers. How often is a child willing to share a new toy right away? These puppets are well made and can be used for endless hours of imagination games.

          These puppets are well made, durable, kind to small fingers that may get into the mouth, easy for young to use because of the ball pull on the bottom, but also for adults because of the lever. The included stickers are fun to involve your kids in the sticking on process. They also stick well, and I don't get them all over the house and inserted in my one year old's mouth, like so many other stickers. Kids have trouble with their hand coordination when it comes to stuffed puppet animals, so this works well when you want to make something talk. My daughter is 2 1/2 but I think when she is closer to 3 1/2 or 4 these will be good for role-playing activities regarding friendships and playing school.

            My twin daughters really love story telling, pretend play and stickers. These unicorns are now part of the family. They go with us on car trips and tell bedtime stories. Kids with big imaginations, will really enjoy the puppets. They come with stickers, for decorating.

              My children have never had so much fun with puppets as they have had with these. I love that these puppets are on a stick because no one is trying to put their hand in too small or too large a spot. The lever makes it easy for older children and adults to use. The pull ball makes it possible for little kids to use it too. I also like that they don't take up a TON of space like a giant stuffed puppet would do--in fact, we might bring them on our next car trip for the kids to talk to each other with.

              They are super high quality and durable. The mouth opens well and you can put a finger in, let it go and it's firm but not painful. The girls love them because they are colorful and their hair is pretty -- super girly. The boy uses them as a sword and occasionally plays with them as a puppet with the girls.

              For some reason the plastic does seem to easily get dirty smudges, but they are easy to clean with a wet washcloth or wet wipe. I would totally recommend these for little girls.

              Disclaimer: I received this item in exchange for an honest review.

                I was skeptical about these puppets at first. However, my 3 years old daughter couldn't have enough of them. She loved the stickers to decorate the puppets. She gave them names (Charlie, Opie and Bubu) and talk to them like her little friends. She thinks it is so funny that they can open and close their mouths and absolutely loves to comb their mane to make a braid. She spent hours playing with them and takes them to bed with her. We have had it for almost two months and she still plays with them daily; which says a lot about the toy! It is very well constructed and feels solid in my hands when using them to play puppet theatre for my daughter.

                    My 5, almost 6 year old daughter really liked this toy. She loved the colors of the ponies and that she could decorate to her choosing with stickers. I liked that it promoted creative play. She even took these to the park to play.

                    She didn't like the little bumps on their cheeks that make them more unique in my opinion (not so generally molded). She did like that they were like real puppets in that she could open and close their mouths. The quality of the material was great. This is not a flimsy toy.
