Are you looking for hand puppets for your puppet theatre? We have put together a broad and varied collection of hand puppets for you. Finger puppets made of soft plush, characters with wooden heads and affordable hand puppets with plastic heads can all be found in this section. You can combine both animal and people puppets individually, or buy them in a themed set.
Hand puppets are wonderful toys for role-playing games, where your children become the characters in a story. There are situations in which children need to be kept busy, for example, during long car journeys or on a flight. Hand puppets are wonderful for these times, because they take up such little space, and the children’s attention is kept on the stories they make up or on acting out stories they already know. Our selection of hand puppets includes models from renowned manufacturers such as Beleduc, Goki, Roba, Heunec and Käthe Kruse, and they are available with heads made of wood or plastic or made entirely of plush. It’s usually best to let your children decide which hand puppets they need. Especially if you already have a puppet theatre (or a creative alternative), you can’t do without at least a few hand puppets. Goki offers a basic set of hand puppets that includes Punch, the King, a crocodile and a policeman. These toys give children an outlet for letting their imaginations run wild. We also offer you a collection of animal hand puppets which could be used to mimic life in the wild. Hedgehogs, ladybirds, butterflies, rabbits, cats, beavers and squirrels can all be purchased from our online shop. Fun for Young and Old
Puppets can be ordered individually or in various different sets. To expand your own collection of hand puppets, we offer you cuddly, puppets that can be purchased individually and are especially suited to imaginary voyages. Puppet theatres also gives children the chance to revisit and process their own experiences - whether good or bad - within their comfort zones. Even if you can’t think up an original story every day, there’s no need to worry. Your puppets can act out goodnight stories, fairy tales or parables, for example. These types of stories are generally fairly short, which makes memorizing parts easy. These are stories that familiar to your children, so they already have the plots in their heads. Then they just have to hone down those plots for a perfect performance. Hand puppets make theatre just what it is supposed to be - child’s play! Puppets and the role-playing that goes along with them is intrinsically educational, but it also helps to develop motor skills, which are needed to manipulate finger and hand puppets. In order to get the play started, an adult can simply take the lead for a few minutes. Each of the puppets is given its own special voice to distinguish its character from the others. Even a simple narrative about doing the marketing or a trip to the swimming pool is sufficient. Hand puppets made of plush also do double duty as cuddly stuffed pet. Maybe your children will even tell their new friend a goodnight story to accompany both of them on their way to the land of Nod.
