      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Highly recommended by my little monkeys .

      All ages

      This glove puppet has all five little monkeys for the nursery rhyme, "Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed" as well as a printed copy of the rhyme. ( As if anyone didn't already know it).

      The glove is a soft green cotton with brown tips and the monkeys faces, ears and arms attached. The glove is made to fit an adult. I have long fingers and find this fits me quite comfortably. My five year old son can also manage with it, but it is a bit too big. The two year old has no chance, it is just way to large, but he can still enjoy the stories.

      I bought this over a year ago and my son youngest loved it from the start. I think it would be perfect for very young babies even to watch the monkeys and listen to the song. We use it for the Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed song, but my sons favourite is the Five Little Monkeys Teasing Mr Crocodile, and we bought a crocodile puppet as well.
      We do the song and puppets at bedtime, but a new favourite is to hang up a sheet with a light behind it and do a shadow puppet show. My five year old very much enjoys putting on puppet shows himself now, and I think these are wonderful creative toys.

      The only downside to this is it does not appear very washable. We carefully put it away after each use and it has stayed clean, but I imagine the hands and monkey faces could get very grubby. I do not believe it would be machine washable at all and too much scrubbing would likely make it look worn and tatty after awhile.
