Product Description

Originally on our screens in the 50s Sooty was soon joined by Sweep to entertain the nation for over 60 years, making theirs the longest running children's programme in the UK. Well-made and delightfully plush, these hand puppets are some of the nicest we have seen. They are a very good likeness to the cheeky originals from the popular TV series and will be appreciated by parents and their children.

Sweep is surely more than a puppet: he is actually one of the greatest social commentators of our time. Squeaking eloquently to audiences everywhere alongside his curiously mute friend Sooty, who can deny the comic genius and timing of the old custard pie in the face, one of Sweep's trademark gags.

Where cloning technology began with Dolly the sheep, we have progressed far enough that scientists at the University of Sootyology have been able to take Sweep's DNA (Dog Nucleic Acids) and produce a large amount of clones, so that you too can have your very own Sweep.

The Sweep clone perfectly encapsulates the original... slightly gormless expression and sticky out ears, and the all important squeak is still there as well (although not in a hugely convenient place for squeaking - this puppet would actually be better for people with six fingers!). He'll probably stand up to a fair bit of Sooty Show re-enactment, so don't delay - get your Sweep today!

For Lovers of Sweep this is ideal momento. I had a Soo handpuppet when I was younger but I throughly enjoy the priviledge of having my own Sweep. Sooty might be the star of the programme but Sweep shouldn't be underrated. It is often the under dog who triumphs!

I have a newborn baby on the way and being a big fan of the Sooty show as a kid I just had to buy Sweep for him. Comes complete with "squeek" noise that im sure will keep my new born (and myself) entertained when hes a few months old :)

I didn't expect much but this is a very good quality toy which is well put together with high quality materials.
A lot of fun with enough space for an adult hand to fit but also suitable for a child to play with on their own, we bought this as our dog of the same name is not with us any more and it has been a great distraction for everyone, it appears at the table looking for food, plays games etc.
As they say the limits are your own imgination!
This is an official product I do not know if the unofficial ones would be as good.

Sweep was always my favourite charachter from Sooty- this puppet is great looks wise. The squeaker doesn't sound like Sweep but can't complain!

My daughter is almost 9 now but has had a Sooty puppet for some time. I thought it was about time Sweep arrived to join him. The product looks to be of a high quality and arrived on time. Overall very pleased!
