Surgeon Role Play Childs Hand Puppet by Melissa & Doug. NAME: Dr Susan Chartwell OCCUPATION: Doctor NICKNAME: Scribbles FUN FACT: Susan is much less precise with a pen than with a scalpel. Her signature is often mistaken for an ECG. Scalpel! Sutures! Dr. Susan Chartwell is ready to “scrub in” in order to bring better health to everyone you know. Use one hand to manipulate the puppet’s mouth and facial expressions, while gesturing with the removable wooden rod with the other. Detachable rod is suitable for lefties or righties! Puppets help teach manual dexterity, hand-eye co-ordination and speech development, encourage creative expression and imaginative play. Why not…… Ask the child to give the puppet a name and introduce it? Ask the puppet questions and have the child answer them in a unique puppet voice? Create a story line or scene that the child can act out with his/ her puppet? Assist the child in using the removable hand-operated rod?
