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.
It was a success! He loves it, even though his hand is too small to be able to make the mouth open fully, he still manages to pretend to make Gruffalo growl.
The puppet is really well made, has all the details that are mentioned in the story (poisonous wart, purple prickles etc).
Little Mouse finger puppet is a great addition as well.
I would definitely recommend it for any Gruffalo fan!
opened it to see what it was like was pleased with this puppet, soft and durable this a good buy.
I know one little boy who will be exceptionally happy christmas day.
Delivery very quick.
Still, it will come in useful for guarding the cookies!
