(Manhattan Toy $22)
Straight out of Dr. Suess’ Cat in the Hat come the mischief makers, Thing 1 and Thing 2, only in this case they are both in a single puppet. Turn it one way and you see Thing 1 turn it around there’s Thing 2. We like this plump puppet with red body, white face with stitched features and flowing aqua bright hair.
Puppeteers can fit their hands into the mouths and make them move. Thing one has wide open eyes, while Thing 2 has his closed, with an angelic look. Also available, a Thing1 and Thing 2 Plush Play Set ($30) with the two individual dolls ready to reenact the story book actions or make up new tricks. Their red plush bodies can be joined at the
hands and or feet with their Velcro-like tabs.
Bring these home with the book, if you don’t already have a copy.
