The Magic Of Finger Puppets!
Puppetry is an ancient, traditional art that is still active today in nearly every culture. A child engaged by puppetry will learn lessons you never even expected to teach, all while having fun. Puppets provide that special link between learning and play which makes them wonderful teaching tools for parents, teachers, nurses, doctors, and anyone with an imagination.
We have over 200 different finger puppets to choose from, so be sure to check out our other exciting collections for great gift ideas... There's sure to be "ThumbThing" for everyone!
These eco-friendly, finger puppets are handmade by a number of artist collectives from the rural areas of the Peruvian high-plains. We source ethically, practice fair trade principles and strive to help these artisans extend their products reach.
As descendants of the Incas, these artisans, mostly women, have been working with textiles for generations. Knitting is a proud tradition for the Quechua and Aymara people who still use traditional methods today. Most work from home using their passion and skills to create these colorful finger puppets which help supplement their family's income.
Each finger puppet is as unique as the artist who created it! Some characters are only available in limited quantities and then never made again. Others are created by artisans from subsistence communities who only knit during certain periods of the year and produce small quantities of magnificent finger puppets.
Our network of artisan-producers is comprised of over 800 talented individuals who are encouraged to use their creativity to the fullest! These toys are special, they are not made in a factory, they are handmade with love!
