PRODUCT: Paul Lamond Crafty Kids Puppet Kit Ballerina (www.paul-lamond.com)Paul Lamond Ballerina Puppet Kit

DESCRIPTION: One in a range of make-your-own string puppet kits, with a ballerina design. The Ballerina puppet stands 35cm tall. Contains all puppet components, including paints, brushes, glues and instructions. Other designs include Dinosaur, Giraffe, Horse, Fairy Princess and Knight. Suitable for children aged 6 months upwards.

GOOD POINTS: This delightful marionette kit from Paul Lamond is an ideal way to keep creative kids fully entertained, and will be very popular among young girls.

The entire kit is of a really high quality, and everything your child will need to complete the puppet comes packed in an attractive and very sturdy reusable box.

The kit contains a good number of 'ingredients', including wooden and cardboard components to make the head and body (including a lovely shaped bodice), along with pink hair and netted tutu to dress the puppet, and also dowels and puppet string to form the control bar.

The accompanying instructions pamphlet gives detailed instructions (with diagram) to guide your child through the 'build' in an easy-to-follow step-by-step fashion, although as with any such kit, an adult will need to be on hand to supervise children at the younger end of the recommended age range, particularly with threading the tags and attaching the strings!

Paul Lamond Ballerina Puppet KitA decent sized tube of glue is provided to secure the various parts of the puppet in place; in addition, three small pots of decent quality paint (plus paintbrush), two in white to decorate the head and limbs, and one a gorgeous metallic pink which gives the bodice and feet a beautiful glittery appearance (it is recommended that two coats of paint are applied to get the desired coverage). The tutu and pre-plaited hairpiece add a really fun finish to the ballerina, and a black pen is included for your child to add some facial features.

The great thing about this kit is that, once completed, your child can have hours of fun playing with their puppet creation, and will love mastering the art of making her walk, sit and dance!

This is, in our opinion, a very affordable and extremely high quality craft kit that stimulated little imaginations and makes a fantastic gift for any young girl.

BAD POINTS: None that we can find!
