Bart the Pirate

 on January 14, 2012
I purchased this puppet for our son for Christmas. I also purchased the “Mini Scarlet Macaw Finger Puppet” by Folkmanis to accompany him. I really like the quality of the Melissa and Doug products and Barnacle Bart is no exception. He is very well made and has so far stood up to our almost 4 year old who can at times be very destructive. If I could change anything about Bart, I would give him an additional eye with an eye-patch that you can lift up. Our son is facinated with trying to lift the patch up but it is sewn into place. That is not a complaint, just a recommendation. Something else that is very nice is that the stick that is included is removable but it attaches with velcro so that it doesn’t slip out during play.

It is very good quality love the wooden rod to move his arms around. You can put it on either hand the hook or the normal hand. Like the materials they used the hat is nice, the hook is shiny, and it’s easy to control. To me it’s a hands down 5 star product!

My autistic son LOVES these puppets!

I’ve purchased, I think, eight or nine of these puppets for my autistic son, plus their kit for making his own puppet. For the first two or three that we received I truly had the thought, “Man, we must have gotten lucky and the person making this one was having a good day!” but have now come to see that every puppet is is made on a good day.

Love these puppets!

My husband and I had seen these beautifully crafted puppets in our local specialty toy store and fell in love with them. They were kind of pricey, so we checked Amazon and were amazed at the low prices.

Amazing puppets…fun for the whole family!

Big hit!

Big hit with the two year old and her 40-something father! It’s not very big, so my husband has trouble fitting his hand inside, but he makes it work. So far my daughter is more interested in watching that handling the puppet herself.

Barnacle Bart is a Blast

 on January 23, 2014
By Emily Lehman
I’ve never been disappointed by Melissa & Doug! This puppet is fun, and very well made. I got it for my son when he was 3 so he had a little trouble at first learning how to use the mouth. We removed the stick from the hand until he’s able to manoeuvre it better. He is 4 now and still plays with it, and nothing as come apart or fallen off. I think it will last many more years. It seems to be best suited for ages 6+ probably bc they’ll be able to do the movements with the mouth and stick. My son is not quite that coordinated yet, but still has fun with Bart!

Professional Looking Puppet. Great Product

This puppet is much nicer than I expected. It’s a good size, very detailed and made of a good quality fabric. I highly recommend it!

They look like they could join Captain Jack on an adventure

Aarh Matey… What a fabulous job they did on these puppets. They look like they could join Captain Jack on an adventure. The boys are going to love them (I bought 2). So glad that I did. More imagination and less TV is needed in their lives. I am so glad that I ordered early just incase they sell out. I got mine :). All of the puppets that I order of the Melissa & Doug line, in my estimation, are such good quality.
