The puppet we received is well made and fun to play with. Because various different pieces/colours of wool were used to create him there are many seams on the puppet and all of them are very nicely stitched. He is quite sturdy and looks like he’ll last a long time. I love that the long frog tongue is open inside, allowing you to put a finger or two in and “puppeteer” it. My girls had a great time playing with this guy (until my daughter lost him, but we’ll just overlook that part shall we).
Cate & Levi is a Canadian company, operating out of Toronto. Their puppets are made from reclaimed wool in a variety of colours and textures. Each one is a work of art; a unique, one-of-a kind creation. I like that they offer some unusual animal choices, such as walrus and moose (go Canada!). They also refuse to be constrained by the colours of the real life animals, and I love some of the funky colour combinations they come up with. Actually Cate & Levi creates any number of cool things, not just puppets, all made from reclaimed wool. Giving Gifts also carries framed wall art from Cate & Levi, as well as their adorable Zoo Cubes.
You can pick up your own cool Cate & Levi puppet at Giving Gifts for $28. And to give you an idea of how reasonable her prices are, that’s lower then the retail on the Cate & Levi website.
