    i am a real fan of barnaby dixon and i want my own puppet but i dont have the materials to make one so i use just my hands to make a fox head!
    the thumb becomes the lower jaw and the fingers on the side (the ears stick straight up) become the ears and the last fingers become the upper jaw,the jaws go in front of your hand and touch at the tips.
    here are some of the things it can do:
    -bite things
    -hang off of things
    -be sad(the ears go down)
    -wave(one ear tip goes up and down)
    its quite cool!
