Hi! I've been lurking on these boards for several weeks now- I'm addicted. I am an AP parent to two beautiful children (3 yo Nicholas and 1 yo Emma).

Anyway, I make it a point to provide my kids with high-quality, instead of high-quantity toys. Each birthday has a theme, to minimize excess toys. This year, Nicholas is having a "finger puppet theme". I need a website or catalog that sells high-quality, cloth and/or wood finger puppets. No commercial products, no chep "crap".

Please help ladies! I've searched, but I can't find anything!

We have a bunch of great fabric finger puppets by Manhattan Toy Company. Go to the Manhattan Toy Catalogue and search for "finger follies" - they have a ton of them.

I got some neat finger puppets for ds from Baby Love/Kidalog. (Enter the online store and go to Toys>Puppets and Dolls>Finger Puppets.) The ones I bought are not actually pictured there (but I bought them over a year ago, so maybe she doesn't carry those ones anymore??) She has a diverse selection.

Thanks ladies! I'll definitely check out both of those sites.


BTW, has anyone ever seen Autumn in New York, with Richard Gere and Winona Ryder? In one scene, she is telling the girls a poem, and illustrating it with butterfly finger puppets. They are sooo beautiful. They look like they are made of silk or something. Any ideas where to find butterfly finger puppets like that?

Thanks!
