Review of Gustav Mole Puppet

This hand puppet has special appeal, coming complete with violin and bow. He has been designed to introduce children to the world of music, instruments and performing groups.

Gustav fitted well on the children’s hands and was easy to use. All the pupils in my class liked him and enjoyed getting him to play his violin (however, as the bow is the only part of the violin permanently attached to Gustav’s body, care is needed to ensure that a vital part of this resource does not get lost). On his own he has a limited use and is therefore quite an expensive resource, but when combined with the accompanying picture book, tape and game which help to create a real character for the puppet, he becomes an interesting and engaging way to introduce young children to the delights of music in all its different forms.
