2014 Award
Mudpuppy Shadow Puppets, Monster Mania
(Mudpuppy Press $16.99 Score:)

Eight laser cut monster faced shadow puppets on sticks come in this set that invites kids to explore the science of making shadows and the ancient art form of storytelling with those shadows. These come with no premade story. Cast the shadow on a light or white wall with a flashlight and let the action begin. Try using them to dance to spooky monsterous sounding music or tell a story of three monsters, a la Three Bears or create a totally original story. There is also a set of premade Madeline shadow puppets for younger players. They are marked 3 & up, but this is really a toy that is more appropriate for school aged players.

2014 Award
Mudpuppy Shadow Puppets, Madeline
(Mudpuppy Press $16.99 Score:)

Eight laser-cut shadow puppets on sticks are ready to lights and action as kids retell some of their favorite Madeline tales or make up their own stories based on thie classic adventures of young Madeline. The puppets give kids a chance to explore the science of making shadows and the ancient art form of storytelling with those shadows. We were surprised not to find all those girls in a long straight line as one of the puppets, but this set does include Madeline, the Eifel Tower, a house all covered with vines, Miss Clavel, and several of Madeline’s friends and pooch. Older kids will enjoy the Monster Mania set in the same line. Marked for 3 & up, we think older 4 and 5 year olds would be better able to make this happen.

2014 Awards
Folkmanis Grunting Pig Puppet
(Folkmanis $29.99 Score:)

This 14 inch pig has plush and velour pointy ears that look big enough for flying! Buttery soft and cuddly, it has a tannish patchy body with dark grey spots, a movable mouth and a special spot that grunts when squeezed. Pig's legs are not rigid, as shown in the photo; they sort of sit softly in your lap when he's held. Perfect for dramatic play and original story telling.

2010 Award
Manhattan Wildlife Collection Warren Walrus Puppet
(Manhattan Toy $19.99 Score:)

I am the Walrus--CooCoo Kachoo! And what a walrus Warren is! He's all wrinkly and velvety dark brown with blue-grey mouth and two white tusks. The details on this big 13" puppet are marvelous. His eyes are set into the tan fabric with pockets of white lower eye lids that give him a special look. Above his mouth he has wonderful black whiskers and a dark black snout. A little hand will fit easily inside the whole body puppet with elongated body and flippers. This can be used for dramatic play and storytelling with or by kids 3-33 and up.
