You can go to any old box store and buy stocking suffers and toys but really why would you want to? Stockings are the gifts that are supposed to be fun, sweet and last you until it’s time to open the big gifts. I take quite a bit of pride in finding my family unique and special stocking suffers right down to the candy. When I look back on my childhood it is not the presents I remember the most it was waiting to see what was stuffed inside my hand-knit Christmas Stocking. Those small trinkets and candies were the most personal and the ones that always made me smile on the inside, and that is exactly what I hope to do with my kids.Now you understand why a box store simply just won’t work for my stuffing needs. Thankfully I can find wonderful gifts online like Thumb Things Finger Puppets, they are handmade from Peru and the best part, they are Fair Trade! A wonderfully unique gift that is fun, and supportive at the same time. Additionally, Finger Puppets Inc. gives 1% of their annual sales to environmental organizations who help protect our planet. You can take comfort in knowing your money is going further than just a small gift for a child.
These puppets are eco-friendly and made by Inca descendants who use a form of knitting passed on for generations to make these one of a kind puppets. All of the puppets are bought from local families who make these in order to generate an income for their family! There are over 800 talented individuals who make these great puppets. Every finger puppet is as unique as the artist who created it! Some puppets are only available in limited quantities and then never made again. Others are created by artisans from subsistence communities who only knit during certain periods of the year and in very small batches.
There are so many wonderful collections of finger puppets to choose from I love the Christmas collection and the Wild Animals collection but really they are all so very cute and sweet.There are over 200 different finger puppets for your kiddo’s to collect and trade on Christmas morning. Now all you have to do is decide which ones you like and hurry before it’s too late to nab them up for Christmas.
