A versatile vehicle for creative imagination, puppets offer an open-ended play pattern that can provide hours of entertainment as your child enacts favorite stories and fantasy play or processes reactions to current events in their lives.
They're also ideal for use in interactive stage and puppet theater as well as for teaching, daycare, school, games and parties or to pair with a book for storytelling.
Puppets foster interaction, inspire expression and nurture cooperation, all while helping kids develop social skills through playfully engaging with parents or peers. By encouraging expressive action, children gain confidence in their ability to positively affect their world, as "players on the stage of life". The pro-active nature of puppetry helps them explore the power of cause and effect, make visible their dreams, victories and fears and to make tangible the characters from their inner life.
