Page of Puppets and Puppetry
Puppets are wonderful educational toys for all the right reasons. Puppets can teach both kids and adults because people tend to listen to puppets. That's why puppets are wonderful for communicating lessons while delighting crowds. Puppets are gentle, non-threatening friends, yet they that can do goofy things. Puppets can be hilariously funny or poignantly sad.
Another reason puppets work so well is because of their scale, as most puppets are smaller than children. And when puppets are big, they're magical. In addition, puppets are very multi-sensory. They move, vocalize and can evoke emotions.
