Have you watched The Lion King yet? No, we’re not referring to Disney’s original animated classic from 1994, but instead to the photorealistic remake that’s been tearing up British cinemas since its release in late July, in the process introducing a whole new generation to the charms of Simba, Pumbaa, Timon, Mufasa and co.
Now, you might be wondering what this hit film could possibly have to do with the world of puppetry that we represent here at Puppets By Post.
Well, if you or any little (or big!) ones in your care have been left utterly enchanted by the movie’s journey to the Pride Lands of Africa, the great news is that they don’t have to leave that world, when you buy animal hand puppets from our store that more than slightly resemble all of those familiar and much-loved characters.
Don’t miss your chance to get acquainted with some new Puppet Buddies
When it comes to all things hand puppets, you really can’t do better than the offerings of The Puppet Company, which just happens to have a new range of glove puppets under the Puppet Buddies banner – and many of them are ideal for an African theme!
Whether you’re on the lookout for an elephant, giraffe, leopard, lion or tiger puppet, you’re sure to find just the thing in this range of puppets suitable for those aged 12 months and above. These lovely puppets all measure 25cm high, 22cm wide and 12cm deep, and are made from a fabric that provides a really soft touch and finish.
But we’ve got plenty more to fire the imagination
What’s especially great about puppets is that they can seem very simple, but provide such a brilliant way of telling all manner of fascinating stories! We’re sure that you’ll feel inspired yourself as you continue perusing our African hand puppets selection, featuring the likes of hippos, chimpanzees, crocodiles, zebras and – of course – more than a few indomitable lions.
Along the way, you’ll find not just glove puppets and hand puppets, but also the likes of long-sleeved and full-body puppets. The latter, for instance, form part of The Puppet Company’s Full Bodied Animal collection, and are as beautiful and cuddly as soft toys, while also offering all of the functionality of puppets.
Whether, then, your own favourite Lion King is the unmistakable original or the bang-up-to-date 2019 remake, when you buy animal hand puppets at Puppets By Post, you can be sure of finding the perfect African-themed puppets to match!
