What are the average hand span measurements for children aged 1 - 5?
There are stores online that have hand puppets for sale. Amazon is usually the best place to find odd things like hand puppets for children. Ebay is another good option for shopping for niche products. You can find school supply stores online that offer hand puppets and kits to make your own hand puppets.
Measurements. Just because a particular result lies far from the mean doesn't make it any different. If it's noticeably far from the "crowd" of all the other measurements, it can be called an outlier. An outlier isn't necessarily bad, just different. It should be examined in detail to see if there's something odd about it, but not discarded out of hand.
Television during the day (known as "daytime television") has poor viewership, especially among school-aged children who enjoy being outside etc. For that reason few new/popular shows are shown because that would cost money. Spongebob and iCarly have numerous shows on hand that they can send repeatedly at low cost.
