We’ve all played with puppets, we’ve created and told stories with them. It’s a plaything that stimulates children’s imagination and improve communication and social skills. I think finger puppets (and also hand marionette) are especially appropriate for younger children.

Today I bring you a collection of lovely finger puppets handmade of Xisqueta wool and colored with natural dyes. You can choose between three characters: the Xisqueta sheep, the bear, and the wolf. A lot of stories to tell. Put your fingers in puppets, and start to imagine!
