"The monkey is cheeky, he steals things" - Girl aged 7
Develops role play and imaginative play
Good for collaborative play
Inspires children to make up stories and build narratives
The children noticed the little extra details, e.g. the bell on the cats collar and enjoyed commenting on them and exploring the multi-sensory aspects of the puppets. The children used these puppets with others extending their narrative and promoting even more imaginative play. Using lots of puppets promoted social skills and communication as more children got involved with the play and took the storyline in a range of directions. The addition of the Finger Puppet Theatre really enhanced the play value.

Fiesta Crafts finger puppets include lots of little details such as embroidery, bright fun materials and arms and legs so can be animated especially 'walking along'. All these features make them adorable to the child.
Designed using a mixture of both wood and tactile fabrics, the puppets can be used individually or with others from the collection to recreate scenes and stories, helping to bring imagination to life.
Perfectly sized for little fingers, the puppets encourage creative thinking, role play and interactivity in a way which is such fun they will be used time and time again.
Children love puppets - present a child with a puppet and they think of of fun, adventure, stories and at the very least, they'll smile. From a parent/educator perspective puppets are fabulous for a child's development. Once put on a hand or finger, the child has to get the puppet to do something. It forces them to be creative, imaginative and communicative that very few other toys could achieve. Then, the child will want to put on a show (with or without a Fiesta Crafts puppet theatre) providing joyous home entertainment (away from the screens) and further improving their speech and language skills and their confidence. Not surprisingly, puppets are used extensively throughout the education system.
