Interactive fun wiht the Raven puppet
Folkmanis Puppets believes imagination is the key to a healthy childhood, encouraging play and discovery. Widely regarded as the most innovative puppet-maker in the world since 1976, Folkmanis Puppets consistently designs award-winning, beautifully crafted heirloom toys that inspire creativity, promote hands-on discovery, encourage interaction, teach fine and gross motor skills, help develop early language, and become a child’s lovable companion to be treasured for years.
Inspired by both literature and nature, the Raven puppet can be adapted for multiple purposes as well as for pure entertainment. Pair it with a favorite book or "Poe"m and have it quote the famous words, "Nevermore." Sing a song with it in hand: "Blackbird singing in the dead of night..." Re-imagine the classic Heckle and Jeckle cartoons or re-tell folklore and mythology with this versatile puppet in hand. Incorporate the bird into your costume to honor your favorite team or join in trick or treating fun. No matter the use, enjoy your puppet as you animate the head and beak. Find additional movement in the pockets on the underside of the wings and take flight!
A versatile vehicle for creative imagination, puppets offer an open-ended play pattern that can provide hours of entertainment as your child enacts favorite stories and fantasy play or processes reactions to current events in their lives.
They're also ideal for use in interactive stage and puppet theater as well as for teaching, daycare, school, games and parties or to pair with a book for storytelling.
Puppets foster interaction, inspire expression and nurture cooperation, all while helping kids develop social skills through playfully engaging with parents or peers. By encouraging expressive action, children gain confidence in their ability to positively affect their world, as "players on the stage of life". The pro-active nature of puppetry helps them explore the power of cause and effect, make visible their dreams, victories and fears and to make tangible the characters from their inner life.
