The Goat has a checkered past in history, folklore, cartoons, and in our minds as a stubborn and ornery character. Often you may here the comment “stubborn as an old goat” or “ornery as an old goat”. However to many Goats are a wonderful farm animal and the new Goat puppet provides the opportunity for everyone to get to know the goat better. To capture this new found beauty and character the Folkmanis Goat Puppet is ready to win you over during story time as it comes to life in animation and imagination. Featuring gorgeous charcoal silver, white, and black soft plush this goat puppet is easy to work and is ready for your creativity. According to Folkmanis if you hold any of their full size puppets in the the cross armed position you will not only be able to work the face you will also be able to bring to life such parts as the back legs, chest and tail with your opposite hand. Another nice feature of the Goat Puppet is it’s universality. Teachers, librarians and students can all work the Goat Puppet easily and thereby involving participation by all parties in a productive, energetic and fun learning experience. The Goat Puppet can allow children to hold a goat, although it is not real the experience is very lifelike. In addition the shape and size of the Goat can be learned and absorbed in an almost natural experience that pictures cannot convey. Working with live goat could be a difficult experience but working with a goat puppet is easy, fun and fruitful as it can be with all animal puppets.
