Based on fairy tales and nursery rhymes, these finger puppets are designed to help children to enjoy the stories by acting them out. A CD telling all seven stories helps the enjoyment along, especially if adults have difficulty remembering the finer details. The characters are knitted with wool yarn on double-pointed needles, with embellishments added after felting in the washing machine to add a furry texture. An introduction includes basic construction hints for working with the double-pointed needles, accompanied by helpful step by step photos. After felting, the puppets are stuffed with fibrefill and embroidered with details such as facial features, and again the process is described with full photographic details. You are now ready to begin puppet-making, and first off is Goldilocks with the Three Bears. Full knitting instructions are provided for creating a lovely golden-haired Goldilocks with a blue dress, white apron and pink cheeks. The bears are sturdy dark brown creatures in different sizes to fit the story of the different sized bowls of porridge, with Daddy Bear having a red waistcoat incorporated into the knitting. Humpty Dumpty follows, then the story of the Three Little Pigs and the Big Bad Wolf, who seems rather a genial fellow with his big smile, though the two white fangs give the game away. A Gingerbread Man, Hansel and Gretel, Red Riding Hood and Mary with her Little Lamb complete the collection. Easy to follow instructions, softback, fully illustrated in colour, CD.
