A great interactive set for story-telling, Moulin Roty’s Heroes shadow puppets are a fabulous way to develop and nurture a wide range of developmental skills. The pack contains 11 black laser cut cardboard puppets each on a wooden holding stick and includes: a ghost, a detective, a super hero, a robber, a ‘BANG’ motif, a little girl, a rebel, a monster, a gorilla, a nanny and a little boy.
The night time shadow puppets simply require a blank wall and a lamp/torch to inspire children to make up their own stories and characters. They can be combined with other night-time shadow favourites – dinosaur shadows, castle shadows and Paris shadows for enhanced stories and fun.
Developmental benefits of heroes shadow puppets
Puppets can encourage even the most quiet or shy children to communicate and can also be useful in the development of social skills by allowing the child to explore and interact with different personalities in a natural way.
Puppets are a great way to bring stories to life and provide great learning experiences because they can become anyone or anything your child wants. The world children create with puppets is entirely their own, a world without boundaries that they can freely explore. Puppets can help boost creativity and stimulate kid’s imaginations from preschool age up to the early teen years.
When puppets are incorporated with play-based learning, children retain knowledge more effectively. The puppets become tools for sharing or retelling what they have learned and observed. They are great for oral and language skills development in both young and older children.
Your child will benefit from the opportunity to develop creativity and cognitive skills such as imagination. This also helps children to start to learn the difference between the real world and pretend worlds. An added benefit of these shadow puppets is the development of motor skills used when children manipulate them to tell their stories.
Your child can learn more about the physical qualities of light and distance through guided use of these puppets with an adult.
