Folk tales are part of a rich culture and children can gain a lot from understanding the stories and acting them out. Independently of the tale, children can use the puppets to make up their own storyline and promote creativity and imagination. Working with other children to put on a show for family and friends is a great way to boost confidence and encourage team work.

This adorable set of finger puppets brings the much loved story to life. Supplied in a stunning presentation gift box it includes Finger puppets for each of the main story characters. Each puppet is beautifully designed with wooden head and bright fabric bodies and skilfully hand made to bring the favourite characters to life. Finger puppets though simple to operate, encourage all children (and adults) to be highly imaginative whilst they invent stories and improve speaking skills as they have to communicate to others.
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.
A free downloadable play script is available to help children act their parts
Also available are individual finger puppets and a finger puppet Theatre.

"They are beautifully made and very colourful" - Teacher
Traditional folk stories promote cultural understanding and interaction. They also span generations so grandparents enjoy interacting and helping with the imaginative play. The expressions on the faces of the puppets promote understanding and discussion of emotions. Children can enjoy playing on their own or for younger children older brothers and sisters or parents can use the puppets to entertain the little ones.
