As a company, Finger Puppets Inc. sets out to do for our artisan-producers all of the things they can not do for themselves; branding, marketing, packaging, freight forwarding, toy safety compliance, insurance, barcodes, warehousing & distribution, international sales, the list goes on…
All with the intention of opening up one of the world’s poorest, most remote and isolated regions to a global market, creating life-changing opportunities for a marginalized population who contend with extreme poverty.
Kids are spending more time than ever in front of screens, and child development experts, along with concerned adults, worry that electronic gadgets might substitute for important interaction.
According to a 2014 UCLA psychology study, children’s social skills may be declining as they have less time for face-to-face interaction due to their increased use of digital media.
The advent of mobile technology enables today’s youth to access and engage with screens 24/7 outside of school, while in cars, on vacations, in restaurants, and even in bed. A recent poll found that children’s access to these kinds of devices has grown fivefold in the last two years.
Nearly 3 in 5 parents expressed concern about the amount of time their kids spend in front of a screen.
Some strong connections have been made about a sedentary lifestyle and obesity and other related medical problems.
An easy solution:
Learning through play is a vital aspect of childhood, and experts say your child should be encouraged to do so every day. Finger Puppets help promote a wide range of developmental aspects. The simple act of offering your child a few puppets can do wonders for their language, social-emotional, cognitive and physical development.
Best of all, they aren’t just for children, ThumbThings Handmade Finger Puppets bring out the kid in all of us!
