Paper Puppet Kits

These Eco-Friendly Toys are a Modern Take on a Retro Design

— April 12, 2016 — Life-Stages
These paper puppet kits from Moon Picnic are a modern take on a retro toy design and are inspired by wildlife. Mimicking creatures like foxes, monkeys, rabbits and penguins, these paper puppets are both eco-friendly and affordable for budget-conscious families.

Each handmade piece is vibrantly illustrated and is collapsible, making it easy to put together by parents and kids alike. Once constructed, these paper puppets are propped on wooden sticks that act as their structural supports.

The puppets encourage creativity and promote imaginative and collaborative play in a time when too much screen time can be prevalent among youth. Rejecting technology, these sustainable toys are a nod to nostalgia and are artistic to boot, making them a memorable product that children of all ages will enjoy.
