Our Favorite Finger Puppets

By marylweimer |

Baby Puppet FingersI don’t know about your toddler, but mine is obsessed with finger puppets. They’re great for road trips or keeping her occupied in restaurants.

They can be tossed in my purse or stashed in a diaper bag, and they’re wonderful for on-the-go play.

One of our favorite things about finger puppets is their versatility.

They can be used to build so many toddler skills: from appropriate social behavior to counting or for a simple game of peekaboo.

Here’s a roundup of our favorites. Some are adorable. Some are mildly disturbing. Which is which? You decide.
