What is it
These Animal Finger Puppets are part of Fiesta Craft’s brand new ‘Gold Range’ of puppets which have been designed to bring the features of each character to life in a more visual and life-like way. Designed using a mixture of both wood (heads) 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 hands, the puppets encourage creative thinking, role play and interactivity in a fun way so they will be used time and time again.
Price listed is per finger puppet.
The ‘Gold Range’ features 19 puppets to choose from. Also available in the puppet range is a Finger Puppet Theatre.
Play Idea : Get your children to put on a show for you. Their communication skills will be really utilised with this activity. They can also use arts and crafts to create a set and props to help. Let their imagination take them into a new place!

What our experts think
The children noticed the little extra details, e.g. the bell on the cat’s 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.
