Your child will fall in love with Chloe from the moment they pick her up and play with him.

Chloe as a puppet will engage your child in the story, developing language, teaching them to love reading and encouraging them to write. Your child will gain confidence in storytelling, reading and writing.

Bring Chloe to life when you put your hand inside her and manipulate her. An average size adult hand and fingers fit comfortably from the back of her body into her head, mouth and arms. Her mouth opens and she has a tongue. You can move her mouth, head, and arms. Her head, body, arms and legs are stuffed to allow easy handling for play and to make the puppet more like a stuffed soft toy.

Chloe is easy to use, fun to play with, cute, cuddly and lovable.

This Book & Hand Puppet Gift Set includes;

  1. Olive’s Ocean; a heartfelt hardcover book. Written by Kevin Henkes; Olive Barstow was dead. She'd been hit by a car on Monroe Street while riding her bicycle weeks ago. That was about all Martha knew. Martha Boyle and Olive Barstow could have been friends. But they weren't - and now all that is left are eerie connections between two girls who were in the same grade at school and who both kept the same secret without knowing it. A lovely story that deals with loss and connections.
  2. Chloe, 46cm hand puppet, is made from premium quality soft velour fabric. She has long straight yellow blond hair, pale peach/pink skin, yellow blond embroidered eyebrows and black embroidered eyelashes. Her carefully embroidered beautiful round light brown engaging eyes look at you with love and kindness. She has cute fingers, toes, ears, nose and navel. She is made with excellent detail and is stuffed to look more like a soft toy, fabric stuffed doll, character or person. Her stuffing and design makes it easier for you to hold her and to manipulate her as a puppet.
