Here are the puppets, puppet stage and even the puppet show scripts, to get started.


Here is a set of five animal character hand puppets, specially grouped to match the four Aesop's Fables puppet show scripts included in this package. The hand puppets included in the Aesop's Fable Puppet Starter Set include:

  • Get Ready Kids 12-inch moving-mouth Lion and Mouse hand puppets
  • Get Ready Kids 10-inch moving-arms Fox and Rabbit
  • Folkmanis 10-inch Turtle puppet with moveable feet and mouth and the ability to hide in its shell.

Children will love exploring the different puppet mouth movements and puppet facial expressions they can achieve on these moving-mouth puppets. It's an educational toy you can have fun with as soon as it arrives.


The puppet show scripts are adapted especially for the puppet stage by The Creativity Institute founders, who are veteran career advertising writers and parents. The "morals" of these Aesop's Fables puppet show scripts are clearly brought out through these contemporary, original adaptations.

Puppet show scripts included are:

  • The Mouse and the Lion (Little friends can be true friends.
  • The Hare and the Tortoise (Slow and steady wins the race.)
  • The Fox and the Grapes (It's easy to dislike what you can't get.)
  • The Fox Who Had Lost His Tail (Distrust advice given selfishly.)

    Also included with these puppet show scripts is a set of puppet show stage directions that The Creativity Institute put together to help parents and children stage more professional and enjoyable puppet shows, such as tips on moving mouths (almost everybody does it backwards), simulating walking, etc.
