See the full Mimitoys Puppet Range. We have the largest collection of children's puppets in Ireland. From my toy suppliers I have stocked a wide range of hand puppets, finger puppets, monster hand puppets, Puppet Theatres and puppet storysets.
We like traditional toys like puppets as they are probably one of the best toy to encourage children’s natural ability to play, use their imagination, creativity, senses, talents and skills!
Watching children (and adults) play with puppets is fun and entertaining but there is so much more to it!
Top 6 benefits of playing with puppets and puppet theatres:
Playing with puppets opens endless possibilities for creativity, collaboration, critical thinking, and curiosity.
With puppets there are no boundaries, we don’t really know what we are going to do when we start, therefore playing with puppets is genuinely up to the imagination…
Puppets can help children learn rhymes and songs as they imitate the puppet too. Repetition is always good to retain vocabulary and learn new words…ideal to introduce new languages for example.
Puppets create interaction, fun dialogue and even an element of surprise with peek-a-boo puppets for example. A favourite for little ones who like surprises!
Puppets can be the voice who talks about manners or good behaviours, without being the parent or teacher. Children will enjoy listening to a puppet, all the better if it uses a funny voice!
Having a few puppets is great to develop self confidence as children are more than happy to come up with a show and amazing stories in front of their family.
