A hand puppet isn’t just something to keep a child or adult entertained – it’s also a vehicle for telling stories, and you can be sure that many a great story will be told at your home, school or nursery when you buy character hand puppets from our extensive range here at Puppets By Post.
So with that in mind, here are just five of our current character puppets that you shouldn’t overlook.
What better character could there be for helping you to tell a captivating story to your little ones than the great Bard himself? This Shakespeare puppet provides easy access into the head and arms, and can be used by children aged 36 months and above.
Kids who dream of travelling into space when they grow up can realise those aspirations right now, with a little assistance from this suitably intergalactic-looking puppet. Any child at least 12 months old can use it, and it’s as great for general play as it is for storytelling.
We adore the gorgeously designed hand puppets that make up the Tellatale range, and as that brand name suggests, these are fine puppets for storytelling. This Jester character puppet measures about 30cm, is made from wonderfully soft and bright fabrics and is suitable for children aged three years and above.
4. Pius Penguin
He’s the p-p-p-perfect character hand puppet to pick up from our online store, although we’d advise you not to ask him what he’s doing here rather than in Antarctica – we think he wound up in Europe having got lost on a D-tour from somewhere near New Zealand. Anyway, with his movable mouth, Pius Penguin’s a seriously fun hand puppet for children aged at least 12 months.
We’re reaching back into the Tellatale collection to suggest to you this appropriately fearsome witch, complete with the broomstick, skull necklace, red and white stripy tights and full length stuffed legs and shoes that enable her to get up to plenty of witching. Both her arms and head move, so if you’re in the market for an accurately and lovingly designed witch puppet, your search is over!
