Am I the first? Too bad I'm not very clever. I would want a referee puppet to keep my children in line when they play with each other

I want a Masseuse puppet to give my a foot massage. b/c the husband won't!!!! the Puppet book is soooo cute!!!


This book looks amazing. My granddaughter has a puppet theater and could use some cool puppets. I could definitely put this book to good use.


My preferred puppet would be a magical dishes fairy puppet. That sink full is giving me the stink-eye while I'm over here catching up on my blogs.

Melissa @ Little Raindrops

What a cute book! Thanks for a great giveaway opportunity! I could use a laundry puppet to free me from the neverending Mt. Washmore. It could find some of its lost buddies in the process!


My husband would LOVE this book! If I could get a magical puppet to do all the cleaning, that would be wonderful.


What an awesome book! I am planning on sewing my daughter's the puppet theater from the Oliver + S book. This would be a perfect addition to that project!

What a cute book! I would like a cleaning puppet to clean my house for me, so I have more time for crafting & sewing…

Heather Head

I'd love a puppet to plan delicious meals for me and my family! πŸ™‚ I'd cook em, just want ideas that are healthy. πŸ™‚

This would be an AWESOME book!


I'd love a magical workout puppet who can go to the gym for me and magically burn off my kgs. I could lose weight and stay home play with my daughter instead of going to the gym and get crafty and sew.


my friends 4-year-old girl loves the book 'I love you blue kangaroo' and I have been trawling the net trying to find a sewing or knitting pattern for a blue kangaroo for months… I know that her very own blue kangaroo would make her the happiest little girl in the world. And guess what!… I spied one in one of the photos above that would be perfect! So pretty pretty please pick me!

Melissa Duckett

Okay… I'll try this a second time. I'll make all the puppets I can in the book (then I said something cool and fresh like, "hide 'yo socks, hide 'yo gloves") but I really want this spider puppet I saw that was awesome and totally realistic. It was amaze-balls.


I want to give this book as a present to my sister – she is working with special childs, and the puppet creation can enjoyed them and help them comunicate with the world through the puppet eyes/
My private robot puppet will easily wake childs every mornong
thanks a lot!! loveyour blog!


I would love a puppet that would wash my kitchen table/chairs/booster seats/floor after my girls eat breakfast/lunch/dinner/snacks. That would be really nice! But I would settle for a fun giraffe puppet to play with – my girls would love that!

Kitten's Lost Her Mittens

Could I get a puppet to work and bring home a paycheck for me so I can stay home and cook and craft?! That would be awesome. πŸ˜‰

I would LOVE to win this puppet book! Thanks for the chance.

Jenny Howard

I want a puppet of myself that I could send to meetings and whatnot. That way I can do all the things I like and not only the things I must.


What a cute cute book. My daughter would love working on these with me. Can I have a puppet dishwasher?! That would be awesome.


What a cute book and fun looking puppets. I would love to have puppet that would find a way to add time to the day or one that would organize the ever growing to do pile.


My 2 year old would LOVE these, his favorite activity is imaginative play with me, and this would make it even fun for me!


I grew up LOVING The Muppets!!! I watched the show all the time!!! I have always wanted to make my daughter puppets that r like the Muppets!!! She just turned 1 yo and would probably LOVE to start playing with & learning from puppets!! LOVE IT!!!

Kayla K

The magical puppet chef would be my friend! While I'm not a horrible cook, sometimes I hate to make the time to stand around in the kitchen and keep the kids away from the oven! πŸ™‚

Discovering Me

My little brother and sister (6 and 8) would love this book! I think I would like a mini-me puppet; one that would be here at home while I'm at college to play with my younger siblings and tell them I love them. I miss them so much when I am at school, it would be great for them to feel that I am still at home.
