This is one of my sons favourite soft toys. His name is Snap. We bought this for use with the five little monkeys glove puppet which I reviewed earlier. My sons both enjoy the song about the monkeys teasing the crocodile and then "SNAP - where is he?"
This puppet is made to fit an adults hand and I can use it very comfortably despite having long fingers. My five year old can also use it quite easily, and while the 2 year old struggles with it a bit, he does manage. This puppet is used a lot for small puppet shows, or shadow puppet shows behind a sheet with a bright light. We have also incorporated it into a board game, when we play the ELC monkey game he snaps up any monkeys that fall from the tree. When my sons play on the trampoline, they pretend to be the monkeys and tease the crocodile with "nanny nanny nanny" while I chase them about with the crocodile on my hand until one is caught with a big SNAP. Of course the children love putting this on and chasing everyone about to snap them as well.
My oldest son also uses this to attack Dr X when playing action men, and puts on very nice shadow puppet shows with the action men, various guns and weapons and trusty Snap. The number of uses for this toy are limited only by the imagination.
The only disadvantage to this toy is that it is not machine washable. We do keep it safely put away when not in use and it has stayed very clean and nice.
This is one of those toys that has so many memories attached it will move up to shelf and be kept when the children outgrow it. I just couldnt bear to part with dear old Snap.
