Are you looking for a fun and interactive toy that sparks your child’s imagination?


If the answer to that question is yes, then I have the perfect toy for you, Educational Insights The Sea Squad Puppet-on-a-Stick. My children’s faces lit up when they were given the new Educational Insights The Sea Squad Puppet-on-a-Stick. This toy allows children to “dive” right into a world of creativity and imagination. My boys and I loved creating our own puppet shows right in our living room. I loved watching my children work together in forming their own under the sea adventures.


What the Sea Squad Puppets comes with:

  • Flipper the Angler Fish: green puppet
  • Dipper the Octopus: red puppet
  • Chomper the Shark: blue puppet
  • Bob the Clam: purple puppet
All four puppets are adorable, colorful and tons of fun!

5 reasons why we LOVE Educational Insights The Sea Squad Puppet-on-a-Stick set:

  • Easy to use! The easy glide child-sized thumb lever made The Sea Squad Puppet-on-a-Stick easy to manipulate for my 4-year old. The chunky pull down secondary knob was perfect for allowing my 2 year old to manipulate the Sea Squad and create his own fun stories of adventure.
  • Durable! As a mother of 2 children under the age of 5, I am always looking for toys that will withstand hours of play time. The Sea Squad Puppet-on-a-Stick’s sturdy, durable and soft-touched molded bodies made playtime even more exciting. The Sea Squad Puppet-on-a-Stick toy is very well made and will certainly be able to withstand the test of time. I look forward to my children playing with them for years and then having them passed down to my grandchildren one day!
  • Bright and Colorful! The vibrant colors of each Sea Squad puppet adds to the excitement and the joy of playing with these toys. We especially love that the inside of the mouth is a different color than the body of the puppet. This becomes visible when the puppets “talk” to each other during our fun puppet shows.
  • Educational! I am always looking for toys that make learning fun and that is exactly what The Sea Squad Puppet-on-a-Stick does. My children did not even realize that they were developing important social and academic skills while playing with these fun and interactive creatures.
  • Sparks the Imagination! The Sea Squad Puppet-on-a-Stick allows children to enter into their own “under the sea” imaginary world. With these puppets, kids are able to create entertaining and unique stories that enhance their pretend play skills which are essential in healthy child development.

    We try to limit screen time and we have a ton of dress up stuff. It seems the kids really enjoy it but its an interesting question on if I do anything to foster it. I think playing along with them helps!

  2. Cathy B. says:

    We have many costumes and props. I allow my five year old to use pretty much whatever she wants as long as she helps clean up. She loves to use kitchen stuff and pretend to cook. She made puppets with brown paper bags. Would love to get her a theater someday.
