Folkmanis hand puppet armadillo


Armadillos are peculiar New World mammals, found only in the Americas. The amusing Folkmanis Armadillo puppet represents the colors, patterns, and banding found on these unusual critters. Custom printed on soft-boa fabric with a „pine-needle“ hairy belly, the ingenious design curls up and secures with magnets. Use all five fingers to animate the legs and head.

Did you know that armadillos are known for their ability to roll into a tight ball when threatened? This unique defense mechanism protects their soft undersides, leaving only their hard, armored backs exposed. Armadillos also skillfully dig with their sharp claws to find food and build shelters. The Folkmanis hand puppet armadillo provides children with a fun way to explore the fascinating adaptations and behavior of these unusual creatures.
