With a Folkmanis finger puppet, you’ll always have a friend nearby. As oversized insects go, this one definitely uses her power for good, not evil. Devout, humble and helpful, the Mini Praying Mantis crusades against garden pests with righteous wrath and ne’er harms a hair on your head. Ideal for use in interactive stage and puppet theater, Folkmanis Puppets are also great for teaching, daycare, school, pretend play, games and parties, or to pair with a book for storytelling. Easy to feed and care for, just add lots of love and snuggly fun. Folkmanis has been encouraging young imaginations to blossom since 1976 with its innovative and engaging specialty puppets, promoting creativity and discovery while winning nearly every industry, child development, and kid-tested award. Folkmanis has grown to become the premier manufacturer of plush puppets worldwide, offering over 200 of the most heartwarming and realistically designed creatures–both exotic and familiar–on the market today.
