I was just delighted to receive a 3 Bags Full Finger Puppet Pouch recently. Don't you agree that this is adorable? The pouch is a knit bag, painted with a scene, and it holds finger puppets. The puppets can also attach to the outside of the bag, adding a three-dimensional loveliness to the scene. My pouch is the farm one, so it contained a cow, dog, duck, horse, pig, rabbit, sheep and a gorgeous rooster.
The pouch comes with a leaflet suggesting books that would make a good match for the theme you choose. Suggestions for the books are also on the website.
3 Bags Full Finger Puppets are part of the Indigenous Crafts from Bolivia website, a company selling fair trade crafts from Bolivia. They sell online or through stores.
The pouches would make a great gift of course. I think they'd be ideal for plane or car travel. They are robust, and the idea of storing the puppets inside the bag is a good one. There's enough room for other indispensable bits and pieces too. Pairing a pouch with a book or two encourages both reading, imaginative play and creative self- expression. What a wonderful gift!
Kelly Burstow has a review of the pouches too. She loved the arctic pouch and puppets and has a short video showing its versatility on her blog. I also found a review by Nicole at Planning with Kids, who loved the garden pouch and puppets.
I love finding toys that are the perfect match with literacy. 3 Bags Full Finger Puppet Pouches also encourage creative expression, and purchasing supports Fair Trade. Win-Win-Win!
