These sweet puppets were a homemade gift to my son from his Great Aunt. They are a big hit. They play peekaboo during take off, they talk about what is happening during the flight, they share snack, they take naps. They have saved Mama's tush on several occasions.
Hand and finger puppets are a great diversion for the under three set, especially ones with moving mouths. If you can find some like these that are flat, they pack really well. Even bath puppets are great, neat texture and usually small and compact enough to stick in a toy bag.
My littlest one likes his finger puppet, too. He's really into bugs and he loves to make it fly.
