Baby Sloth Puppet
Birthday: 2012 January
This baby sloth is very soft, cuddly and cute in that "slothly" way.
It has variegated beige, brown and black fur just like a real one (no moss though), and two long toenails on the arms front and three long toenails on the legs (we hate to call them claws because they are used just for hanging on) that are made of a leatherlike material.
Features: Moveable Mouth, Arms, and Lower Legs. Sewn-in Velcro can hold the arms together and the legs together to have the puppet suspend from a branch.
Technique: Hand goes in through the seat just under the tail so the Baby Sloth can be manipulated sitting upright or while hanging upside down from a branch prop.
You can do one of the following setups:
1) The index, long and ring fingers go into the head, beyond the upper jaw and go into the front of the head. The index and ring fingers can move the eyes slightly and the long finger can to into the nose to make it move. The thumb goes into the lower jaw to make it move, or
2) The long finger goes into the lower jaw, the index and ring finger go into the upper jaw and the thumb and little finger to into the arms, or
3) The thumb and litte finger go into the lower legs, the index and ring fingers go into the arms and the long finger goes into the neck to move the head.
Or you can invent your own hand setup depending on your flexibility.

This is the cutest puppet I love that the arms, legs and mouth move. It made a great birthday gift.

my daughter has been wanting one of these for over a year. To me, it doesn't look as I would expect a sloth to look,but after seeing a youtube of someone demonstrating how to use the puppet, I was hooked. Very pleased with PuppetU and delivery was remarkable. Prices were great and product just as described. Will order from this company again. Was my daughter's favorite Christmas gift. thank you.

Fun and fantastic for kids and adults. We plan to put a large tree branch on the wall so our baby sloth can hang out with us all the time. Great value for the price.

I've been looking for a baby sloth for about a year. This one is very close to "real" and I'm thrilled to have him. A sloth is a most unusual and special animal.Thanks so much to Folkmanis Puppets for making the Baby Sloth available to us.
