28" Biker (female) in leather GS2816 New By Sunny Hot NEW
Puppet is a kind of a doll utilized as a part of puppetry, an extremely old form of theater. An entertainer that animates the puppet is called puppeteer. Puppetry is known since Ancient Greece and there are composed documents that mention theater of puppets dating in the past fifth century BC. Exhumed clay dolls from Indus Valley locales show that puppetry was known in India since the second century BC.
There's a practical limitation that affects every puppeteer: You only have two hands. How can you bring to life your characters with all the detail and sophistication they deserve with only two hands to manipulate them? The solutions to this are the root of a lot of the innovation and artistry of puppet theater.
These puppets are in from top of head to tip of toes and can accommodate adult-size hands. Their large size makes them especially good for ventriloquist use before large audiences. All of these puppets have sculptured faces and finely detailed clothing. Hand goes into back of puppet and up into head to work mouth.

Big Benefits of Puppet-Play for Children
1. Stimulates imagination
The most obvious benefit of puppet-play is encouraging the child’s imagination and creativity. We have seen children coming up with stories involving their dolls, from giving them names, to elaborate scenarios with their other toys.
Parents can also read or tell fairy tales and other stories to their children and ask them to recreate these stories using puppets. This reinforces what they have retained from the stories they have just heard and parents can take delight in watching their kids' versions of the tales.
2. Emotional development
Sometimes kids are shy and withdrawn and often parents have a hard time coaxing them to share their feelings. In such cases, the puppet becomes a friend that kids can express their feelings to, without the discomfort. This ensures that they have a safe space to vent their emotions or they might even use the puppets to communicate to their parents about their unhappiness.
3. Boost's confidence in speaking and reading
Kids may feel shy reading or speak out loud in front of their peers or parents. When this happens, they are more willing to do so in front of their puppet friends. As they play with their puppets, their language skills also improve.
Furthermore, research has shown that kids show lesser inhibitions when they are behind a puppet. They feel more comfortable as they explore the different possibilities in playing with these special friends.
4. Increases group participation
In a group setting, be it among siblings or classroom, puppets can be used to increase the participation level of children and add an element of fun. Kids get excited when a new toy is introduced and teachers can allow them to create stories or express their feelings about a certain topic, using puppets.
Introduce a puppet pal to your child today and watch his imagination bloom as he becomes a storyteller, or see his confidence boost in social settings.
