Maybe you've all seen this video already but I really like it so I thought I'd write a post about it.
It reminds me that it doesn't matter how "fancy" your puppet are with moving mouth and so on,
with the right personality it can be as simple as a spoonhead, like in this video.
In just seconds the little spoonhead goes from just being made to this cute little guy who helps stuffing Fred's head!

I love this video because it shows how it is to make a puppet. You don't need much for a puppet. We have a puppet here and that is only my hand , no eyes only the hand. And than we begin to talk we have a lot of fun with that puppet he doesn't have a name maybe handy is something for him
And when I see an animal with kids I have to talk with it. This morning I brought my son to ..(what is its name in English school for 2/3 years old, they play a lot it is not a daycare, he is there for 3 hours twice a week, maybe it is Dutch) but a child was making a kind of puzzle , she had to put plastic bears in the write size and color what is on a picture. I almost had a bear in my hand to talk with her................... but I am not the teacher... pity...............
Last week in the shop they were selling teddybears so my daughter ask  me if she can get one. With nu hesitate I get a bear and talk with him No I don't come with you. Other people were looking and thinking.....pity for them we had fun !!!

@gompie,  In the US they would call that daycare or pre-school.  It is before they go into kindergarten and is supposed to help get them used to being with other children and to start teaching them some things.

Yes I think this is it. My son plays with cars, cars and .......cars.
