In our digital age of screens and special effects, puppets may seem an old fashioned toy. But children of all ages have been enchanted with even the most simple puppetry for thousands of years and there are good reasons why. This Storybook Friends Puppet set features four iconic characters that will provide hours of imaginative play for you and your little ones aged 2 to 4. Made with brightly patterned, durable (and washable!) fabrics, the princess, fairy, mermaid and ballerina hand-puppets are ready for fantastical adventures of all kinds. Along the way, valuable lessons involving motor skills, hand-eye coordination, communication skills, and parent-child bonding will also be delivered. The easy to use glove puppets fit both children and adults – so even the tiniest puppeteers can spark exciting movement and embark on creative storytelling with very little skill. The longer they play, the more confident children become, and the more complex puppet scenarios will naturally unfold to the delight of all.
