The idea of using a finger puppet as a gag was first utilized from Paul Harris' book by Bob Farmer. Bob called it "The creation of life". 

Derek Dingle used Bob's gag to "explain" the vanish of a coin, and that routine appeared in one of the New York Coin Symposium books back in the 1980's.

Derek's routine was then popularized by Michael Ammar when he performed this feat on Letterman and renamed it 'Little Hand'. 

Since then Alex Ng, Kevin Ho, Roddy McGhie & Dave Bonsall all have their own work on this gag.

    Love the paw, hate the ball. Great idea and looks super good but, to me, it loses it's purpose when not preformed with the ball of yarn and you definitely won't be able to use it for long as the yarn unravels very easily.

    The cats paw itself is pretty cool. Funny little things an gets good reactions. It fits my finger, albeit its a bit flimsy and comes off easily but that's kind of useful as well.

    The main problem is with the ball of yarn that started to unravel as soon as I took it out of the box. I've been trying to re-ball it for 30 minutes now and simply gave up. Still works great with a coin though, but the ball of yarn would have been an nice addition.

    Still worth the 10 bucks if you ask me.

    Gimmick doesn’t fit any of my fingers. Even when I take out the extra stuffing. Very difficult to do with one hand. Don’t waste your money. Get the little hand
