The glove puppet is large enough to fit comfortably onto most adult hands, but not so large that it's too floppy for children (even as young as two) to use it. The puppet is made from a sort of soft plush velvet and includes detailing such as terrible tusks, terrible claws, terrible teeth, knobbly knees, a green (poisonous) wart on his nose, a black tongue and purple 'prickles' all made out of good quality, stiffened felt.
The little finger puppet mouse which accompanies the Gruffalo is also nice, though less detailed than the glove puppet, but can prove a bit large for smaller hands to wear. Smaller fingers aren't big enough to stop the mouse's head from tipping and overbalancing the puppet.
As a nice touch, the mouse Velcros on to the Gruffalo in two places - the Gruffalo's right hand, and inside his mouth. If you want to add a further dimension to re-enactments of the Gruffalo story and own a cutting food loaf, a slice of this will stick quite nicely between the Gruffalo and the mouse... allowing you to perform "you'll taste good on a slice of bread". My preschool class find this hysterical.
Such a well-loved toy, I've bought a couple more as gifts for colleagues' children.

One small note of caution: particularly timid youngsters might find this puppet a bit scary. Although most love the Gruffalo, the puppet's mouth does open quite wide to reveal what can seem an intimidating biting capacity.
