Want to Stimulate Your Child's Imagination? Try a Puppet

By Penny Clift

Summer is here and that means the kids are home. Entertaining them all summer can be challenging. Instead of letting them play video games all day how about giving them something that will stimulate their imagination! I love these realistic puppets from Folkmanis. They are so lifelike it is amazing! Kids can spend hours in imaginative play. They can put on a puppet show or interact with their friends. These furry friends are ready to play! We will help you choose just the right puppet for your child! Let's look at some of my favorites.

Say you aren't a dog person?  Well there is a puppet for cat lovers too!  This Ragdoll cat is so realistic it is hard to tell him from the real thing.  Beautiful markings.  Great for snuggling. 

If you  prefer the call of the wild, there are some great puppets for you.  One of our favorites is the Arctic Fox.  This sweet faced, snowy white trickster will melt your heart!  

These are just a few of the great puppet choices.  I have seen for myself how much children love these puppets.  Try one for your child and watch their imagination come alive.   Happy puppeteering!

Help Finding a Unique Father's Day Gift

Let's face it, Fathers do not receive the same adulation as Mothers.  Fathers go to work, mow the lawn and fix things around the house.  Mom is often seen as the real force behind keeping the family life together. 

In today's modern world however, fathers perform many of the task that were once reserved for moms.  They share household duties and are active in raising the children.  Fathers have evolved a lot.  

Fathers's Day is a chance to show your father how much you appreciate him.  Whether he is the strong silent type who prefers to let mom handle most of the kid duties or whether he is the more involved hands on Dad, they both have a special place in their children's hearts. 

This year we celebrate Father's Day on Sunday, June 21st.  It is the day to take Dad to dinner or play a round of golf.  It is also the perfect time to find that special gift that lets him know how special he is to you.  

We will help you find that perfect gift!  But first a little Father's Day trivia you can share with your Dad. 

Sonora Smart Dodd was the first to begin a campaign to establish the equivalent of Mother's Day for fathers.  Her father was a Civil War veteran who raised six children after his wife died. 

Washington State was the first to celebrate Father's Day on on July 19, 1910.

Many men despised the idea for fear it would domesticate manliness.
