Tall, silent, with curving horns and stern-looking, yellow eyes, the great horned owl possesses a disturbing beauty. At night, in the dark when we have trouble seeing, he startles us with a sudden 'who-who-whoooo!' and we are glad we are not smaller than he. Did you know that the great horned owl is the only bird that has an upper eyelid that can blink like a person, but their vision is 100 times sharper than ours? In honour of that fact, this amazing hand puppet has eyes that blink and a head that turns. A handle inside the puppet (where your hand sits) turns the owl’s head, while a trigger on the front of the handle makes his big yellow eyes blink. The detail on this bird is just amazing – Mr Owl has beautifully soft fur that changes in texture on his belly, leathery feet with soft plastic claws and a hard beak. Height - 45cm. Age guide: from 3 years.
