Trudi Hand Puppets with #Giveaway

Trudi Hand Puppets are cute! I'm talking seriously cute! They come with a mom and a baby, the baby being tucked inside the little front pocket. The little one is also a finger puppet. These soft, fluffy little cuties are definitely going to bring a smile to your child's face. In fact, they're very likely going to bring a smile to your face too. :)

Puppet play is fun, but it's also a very beneficial learning tool for the little ones. For example, the use of dialogue is encouraged, empathy and expression of feelings can be role-played, gross motor skills are enhanced, and social and language skills are further developed. Puppets are also a great way to pique imagination, and encourage little ones to tell unstructured stories that are built as they go.

I know I've used puppets for potty training and they worked like a charm. That's just one example, but of course there are many ways you could use puppets for teaching, in addition to encouraging constructive play.

These super soft (and I do mean super soft) puppets are made by the renowned Italian plush maker, Trudi, who has been designing plush toys in Italy for more than 50 years! Every piece is double stitched, machine washable and comes with a lifetime guarantee.

These are also very reasonably prices at just $25.00 a piece. As a gift idea or just something special for your little one, I highly recommend these for your little one to love and cherish.

You can learn more about Trudi, and make your purchase by visiting their website. You can also follow them on Facebook and/or Twitter. You can also see some awesome pictures of theirs by following along on their Pinterest page.

One lucky reader gets one to call their own. US entrants only.
