Folkmanis Puppets are soft and fun. The puppets in our video are new for Fall 2008, so if a child has these puppets and you are adding to their collection for Christmas gifts -they will not have these. My favorite are the large theatre puppets. The shark is so unique with it's shinny fabric and teeth. Every theatre puppet comes with a mini play to start the imagination going! You can see in our video getting the imagination going is easily done - just put a puppet on your hand!
