Hand Puppet Hippos - Custom George and Martha Set from Story Book Fame: This well known set of characters is based upon the books of the same name by James Marshall. These two lovable hippos are my original interpretation with faces hand embroidered and detailed with felt. George with his "gold" tooth, and Martha with her signature flower are sure to be recognized by a special child in your life. Meant to be played with, they are constructed to fit the hand of an adult as well as a little one.

I'll leave the rest to the lucky child who gets to play with them, as imagination may come up with a whole new set of interpretations of their stories! Psychologists stress the importance of imagination in the healthy development of cognition, a skill not developed in front of a video screen. An amazing gift (couple it with a copy of the book) for an amazing child (or adult).

YOURS will be custom made so you may request a color combo for the clothing, though fabrics will depend upon availability. Please allow a few days before mailing.

To see many more hand puppet characters as well as a doorway puppet theater, go to the puppetry section of this shop.
