These puppets are about 14-15 inches tall. Mouths and hands are movable. They do not come with an arm rod. Hand enters through the bottom of the puppet, where your pinky and thumb can be inserted into the slots on the inside of the body to operate the hands. It can be tricky at first to get everything moving at once, but the main thing is moving the mouth of the Puppet, which is very simple. We ship all Hand Puppets by Post express direct to you.
