The late 1980s and early 1990s was considered the renaissance of Disney Feature Animation, with movies like Little Mermaid, and Beauty and the Beast. Disney had licensing deals with a lot of different companies, but did you know they had a deal with Pizza Hut at one time? I’ve had these Beauty and the Beast rubber hand puppets since they were released in1992.
As hand puppets, they are pretty limited. Chip is 4 inches tall, and it would be impossible for even the smallest child to use him as a hand puppet.
A finger puppet, sure. But none of these figures have any articulation.
Cogsworth is 6 inches tall.
Belle is the tallest figure, at 7 inches.
Beast is 6 1/2 inches tall.
While these may not be the best hand puppets, I do love them as figures, and they have a prominent spot in my collection.
