History of the finger puppets
Puppetry was believed to originate from the ancient Incas of Peru around 3000 B.C. The Incas worked with textiles and the few used them as artistry. Finger puppets were created. They provide entertainment, interactive learning and are a form of communication between different languages and age groups. The mechanisms and ways of making these have been passed down through years.
Why we like them
These fabulous finger puppets fit on both adult and children’s fingers. They are bright and whimsical in color and bring joy to all that see them. They are easy to take with you as an on the go type of toy or just to have at home for a spur of the moment puppet show. These puppets are enjoyed by both of my children and I would expect them to use them for years to come.
