On the continent or off, everyone can appreciate the natural beauty of these North American native creatures:

More cuddly than fierce, the tawny brown and white Wolf Pup puppet is fresh from the den with fluffy, soft fur to keep both you and him warm this winter.  His sweet expressive face features perky ears, brilliant blue eyes and a movable muzzle. Not the lone wolf type, this gregarious little guy will prey on you for lots of love to surely become a leader of your puppet pack. Recommended for ages 3+, measures 13-inches long, MSRP $30.00

Regally perched and ready to swoop comes an unmistakable symbol of majestic beauty, great strength and long life.  The Perched Eagle puppet is realistically rendered with keen, piercing eyes and plumage of dark brown with white head and tail. The strong, hooked beak and powerful talons are featured in gold-hued leatherette.  This puppet is a stunning representation of our national bird prominent in seals and logos and sacred to Native American cultures. Recommended for ages 3+, measures 17-inches tall, MSRP $36.00

Owl fans will delight in the North American Saw-whet Owl. Small in stature, this round faced owl has a cream and reddish brown streaked and spotted, feather-soft body perched upon tan leatherette claws.  Insert a hand into the wings and small beak and witness nature come alive! You will surely want to add this wise choice to your collection. Recommended for ages 3+, measures 12-inches tall, MSRP $25.00
