Animal Crossing Finger Puppets

Last week, NCS started preorders for Animal Crossing hand puppets and saw that demand was brisk. Building on the earlier announcement, manufacturer Sol International has opened up preorders for Animal Crossing finger puppets. Measuring a mere 5cm or 1.98" in height, a puppet may be mounted on a forefinger, a middle finger, or a thumb. Plug all five fingers from your left hand into the quintet of figures and you have a traveling troupe of plushy puppets.

Based on Sol's product photo, the quality and attention to detail for each puppet appears to be very good but we'll reserve final judgment until we receive them and perform inspections. A chain sprouts from the top of each puppet and may be linked to a keychain or belt loop. Preorders are scheduled to ship in mid-late November 2006 at US$4.90 per puppet but this price may drop if the shipping fuel surcharge is lowered in Nov.
