Description
A Toy Unlike Any Other…   

All of our finger puppets are handmade by a number of artisan collectives from the rural areas of the Peruvian high-plains. We source ethically, practice fair trade principles, and strive to help these artisans extend their products reach.  

As descendants of the Incas, these artisans, mostly women, have been working with textiles for generations. Knitting is a proud tradition for the Quechua and Aymara people who still use traditional methods. Most work from home using their passion and skills to create these colorful finger puppets,which help, to supplement their family's income.  

Finger Puppets Inc. takes great pridein celebrating the cultural diversity of communities, while seeking to create positive and equitable change. We enthusiastically respect the development of products, practices, and organizational models, based on indigenous traditions and techniques. We always strive to balance market needs with the greatestrespect for our producers’ cultural heritage.  

Each finger puppet is as unique as the artist who created it! Some charactersare only available in limited quantities and then never made again. Others are created by artisans from subsistence communities who only knit during certain periods of the year and in very small batches. Our network of artisan-producersis comprised of over 800 talented individuals who are encouraged to use their creativity to the fullest.

These toys are special. They are not made in afactory. They are handmade with love.!

There aregenerations of craftsmanship, endless stories, traditions, history and hope for a better future woven into each finger puppet.   

This really is a toy unlike any other, and a brand unlike any other...
