Another option is to order a custom made full size hand puppet, based on similar characteristics.
Here are some examples of puppets I made last year.
A custom made married couple
Custom made sister
This is the feedback I got from the customer:
My sister absolutely loved the custom Flutterbutt that I gave her for her birthday. Right after she opened it she couldn't stop laughing, it was perfect! She spent the rest of the night looking at all the other Flutterbutts available in your Etsy store!
Thanks again for making such an awesome 30th birthday gift!
Custom made brother
And another feedback:
Great communication. Totally helpful. AMAZING PRODUCT. My Xmas present was the best present out of everyone.
Since Christmas is getting near, and I need about 2 weeks to create your puppet plus another 2 weeks for shipping overseas (and we all know it may take longer to arrive with the holidays post rush), I suggest you order your puppet no later than November 20th, and preferably sooner.
And here is a Special Offer for readers of my blog - Order a custom made Flutterbutt or full size hand puppet before November 20th 2010, mention the word Shnigelpuss when you order the item, and get a 10% discount on your order.
