Once upon a time in a world filled with imagination. Puppets with the softest of hearts could tell magical stories that made every child smile.
These were the tales that were told at the palm of someone's hand, literally. If there's one thing that can steal your child's heart and capture their attention, it has to be a good puppet show.
I for one have always had the interest to be a puppeteer for children, because I could take them to a different world where they would feel like they could eat clouds, popping candy and drink jelly, maybe even talk to fairies.
So I have taken the courtesy of sharing these amazing artists/companies that can make your child's next birthday, probably the coolest birthday in toddler land. Even for big babies like me.
One thing I love about puppet shows is the wit, the comedy as well as the educational perspective that comes with telling these amazing stories.

Well! I am not going to pretend like there is an overflow of options waiting for you, but I have picked out the best two options that offer something unique to its own show type of thing.
