The Cara Mello circus monkey hand puppet is handmade from soft cotton terry fabric and wears a blue shirt with stars and dancing monkeys. He has contrast fabric patches on his hands, feet, face and ears. His legs dangle freely, and he likes to do all kinds of tricks, loves to laugh and invites children to play with him. Puppet theater play for older children encourages imagination, concentration, listening, cooperation, and develops storytelling and language. Cara Mello is also a funny friend without a hand inside.
