Little Fingys Finger Puppets
Little fingy finger puppets
Nocturnal Norris flew through my letterbox the other day courtesy of jelly fingers and little fingy. He's a hand knitted finger puppet, an owl. Me and my daughter love owls so we were pleased to have him come live with us. We have played with him and he is great for both story telling time and subtle distractions of a hungry baby whilst daddy is making a bottle. I love that hes hand made in Peru and the fact that little fingy donate to charity's and fund raising. You can get a little fingy sent for as little as £1.70 with a greetings card it makes an ideal alternative gift for little ones or big with a creative imagination.
Here's some information from little fingys website more available from http://finger-puppets.co.uk/
Little Fingy is intended to be as much fun as possible. We are bursting with exciting ideas and aim to get the whole nation involved in the finger puppet madness… Partly for the sheer fun of it and partly to raise lots of money for charity and good causes.
Our knitters are based in a number of villages in the Andean regions of South America. Sometimes whole families work together and knitting enables them to remain in the rural communities rather than heading for a life of urban poverty. Whilst often working at home, women have the opportunity to bring up their family at the same time as contributing to the family income.
Our puppets are great to mess about with and loved by all ages! They are also ideal for story telling, imaginative play, language and sound development for younger children.
All puppets are hand crafted with superb detail and have been safety tested to the European Standard on Safety of Toys:
The puppets are suitable for all ages and display the CE mark.
CHARITY & FUNDRAISING
THE LITTLE FINGY FUND
Little Fingy donates 10% of all profits to charity and good causes as follows:
- PROJECTS IN THE ANDEAN VILLAGES WHERE THE KNITTERS LIVE. We make this donation to say ‘Thank you’ for the knitters work and to act as an incentive to keep up the good work. The money is for improving the quality of life for the knitters and their families by improving community facilities in their villages. Each year we ask the knitters how they want the money to be spent. So far we have bought desks and computers for their children’s schools and blankets and mattresses for the knitters and their families.
- CANCER RESEARCH UK
- ENVIRONMENTAL AND COMMUNITY PROJECTS.
* Please note we split our 10% donation as follows:
6% to knitters, 2% Environmental projects, 1% Unicef, 1% Cancer Research UK
