Folkmanis puppets were originally created by Judy Folkmanis 40 years ago when she used her imagination, sewing wizardry and love of nature to entertain her children.  Today the California-based Folkmanis family continue to create puppets that inspire creativity, encourage interaction  and help develop early language.  As companions to our books, we know the adorable puppets will encourage imaginative play.   Perfect with our books, and perfect for little ones to handle... and snuggle!
