Shadow puppetry is beneficial for children of various ages, encouraging development of:
- literacy & memory
- imagination & creativity
- storytelling, oration & recitation
Most importantly, playing with puppets while telling your favourite stories is great fun for parents and grandparents who want to connect with their children in a creative way. Let the playful shadows frolic across the walls and bring the magic of ancient theatre into your playroom!
This set is not based on any particular fairy-tale, but rather includes familiar fairy-tale characters: a prince/knight, a princess/fair maiden, a fairy (also doubles as a fairy godmother), a witch (good or bad, it’s up to you to decide!), a dragon, a beast/ogre, a king, and a frog. There are also silhouettes of a castle, a pumpkin, and a rose. What’s your story going to be about?
While this set isn’t based on any particular story, there is a minimum number of characters required for such fairy-tales as Beauty and the Beast, Cinderella, and Sleeping Beauty.
