These gorgeous African animal finger puppets will provide many opportunities for imaginative, open-ended play. Felt finger puppets are a great addition to any learning environment. They encourage language development, vocabulary and children’s social skills. Finger puppet play helps to bring children’s storytelling to life, forming storybook characters and visual representations for their imaginings. Finger puppet play is also great for developing fine motor skills and building and strengthening the small muscles in children’s hands and fingers which allow them to confidently carry out a range of everyday tasks- including drawing, writing and painting, self help tasks including dressing or self feeding and more.
The Papoose range of Felted products is Hand-Made by a women's fair-trade co-operative in Nepal. Each piece is made using 100% natural wool products and non-toxic biodegradable dyes, making the entire Papoose range of products safe for children.
