The Fiesta Crafts Sheep Finger Puppet is designed using a mixture of both wood and tactile fabrics, includes lots of little details such as embroidery and bright fun materials, and arms and legs so they can be animated especially 'walking along'. When put on a hand or finger, you have to get the puppet to do something. It forces kids to be creative, imaginative and communicative that very few other toys can achieve. Then the child will want to put on a show, which can be done with a Fiesta Crafts theatre, providing home-grown entertainment (away from the screens). This promotes improvement in their speech and language skills and their confidence. Not surprisingly, puppets are used extensively throughout the education system. Once the kids start, they'll be baaack for more!
