I spent more money again!
I was at the Bristol day of magic and found an Axtell Pockets the Kangaroo in as new condition for half price.
So the question is, is it a boy or a girl? The blue eye shadow and pouch should mean its a girl but what do you think?

More importantly....

What do you think after doing some play and writing with this wonderful puppet.

Love the pocket, and the possible uses.

World vents has a great character development sheet....

or

continue to do research here..

Take it out for your own market research...and see what pronouns people use in talking with K.O. (kangaroo...that is)

I like the idea of market research with it!

My biggest worry would be doing the Aussie accent correctly

It looks like either a female, or a metro-sexual male to me :)

But to children, I don't think it would be distinguishable at all.

Which of course was probably the strategy of Axtel all along.

Best,

If it has a pouch, it's a girl

Maybe the pouch is his "Man Bag"!
