Kids love to play with puppets as it allows them to set free their originative imagination. Puppets may fetch great joy not only to kids, but likewise to adults, all over the world.
Puppets were original introduced to the world of amusement thousands of years ago. It originated from Greece as the Greeks then were known to be fond of theatrical presentations. Though they enjoyed theater, they found supporting the actors financially rather expensive, so that they turned to the use of puppets in plays. They soon ran into that puppets were just as competent as actors to elicit positive response from the audience, so they continued to patronize the use of puppets in puppet shows and presentations, and soon stage puppet shows became some people’s bestloved past time.
Today, puppets and puppet shows have come far from their modest beginnings and still proceed to be popular. Many puppets are patterned after animals such as frogs, elephants and birds. Every puppet employed on stage has a distinct characteristic and personality. The differing personality is indicated not only by the puppet’s design but also by it is person body movements as conveyed by the puppeteer’s hand movement.
Puppet performing it is not as easy as you think. It requires exhaustive and consistent exercise before you may become an expert. A puppeteer needs to study dissimilar proficiencies such as the basic positioning, diction, arm rods and body movements.
The most mutual type of hand puppets is the simple hand puppet and the more spectacular hand puppet. Each of the puppets has their distinct usage in puppet shows.
The simple hand puppets have few or no moving constituents at all. They are ordinarily made up of flexible materials and have distinct facial features such as eyes and nose. The mouth is many times included on the simple hand puppets but it is commonly there just for design purposes. It does not even open or close unless a thumb enters a pocket permitting it to move.
Larger hand puppets are more complex. Other than plainly being more spectacular in size than the simple hand puppets, they have further and added manipulatable constituents such as the eyelids and hinged mouth and arms.
Aside from supplying amusement and fun, puppets these days have taken a political turn and are also used in thinly veiled political caricatures and satire. These political puppets are many times modeled on known political personalities and are ofttimes depicted in the characters’ general political setting.
Whatever the size or the design, puppets and puppet shows today still provide wondrous amusement to a lot of people of all ages.

You basically wear the puppet like a glove in order to utilize both the arms and legs at the same time which is a little awkward. My 11 month old son likes these, but has been pulling the fuzzy mane out of the zebra, so that one is now off limits b/c it makes a mess.
I gave the product 3 stars only because of the icky fabric and the awkwardness of utilizing the arms and legs at the same time. But, on the positive side they wash nicely (threw them in the washing machine and dryer without any issues), include a nice array of animals (farm / jungle / domestic), will likely provide hours of imaginary play for years to come and are quite affordable.
