This glove puppet is identical to the Sooty sold in these rooms on the 4th December 2000. It fits the description of the puppets used during the 1970s and 1980s. All stage and television puppets were marked as each puppeteer using them having different sized hands and fingers. A snug fit was essential for the puppets to handle props. The puppet also had a loop on the bottom of the skirt for pre-set placement.
It is believed that over a thousand puppets have been used during the shows.
