Peek-a-boo, Peep-o Puppets

We all know and love the game Peek-a-boo and many of us will have with fond memories of Mum hiding her face behind her hands, then popping back into view, saying “Peek-a-boo, I can see you!”

It has been a simple game that has lived on for centuries and is believed to improve cognitive development via object permanence which is an important stage of an infant’s progression. This stage usually develops around 8-9 months of age, before this they are too young to understand object permanence.

We have some great toys designed specifically to help with this stage of your child’s development. Our Peep-O Doggie can be pulled right inside his little cup to spring out with a big smiley face and greet your baby.

You’ll be able to have a fun game of peep-o with this soft colourful puppet; move the pole up and down and the cute Doggie appears then disappears again to delight your child. The
puppets also contain a jingle bell and crinkle which is brilliant for exploring touch and sound.

If you don’t fancy the cute doggie, we have a cow or a lion – all 3 of these toys look amazing so it could be hard to choose!

Since the beginning of television, puppets have had a special place on the airwaves…     Our top five are:

1. Charlie McCarthy

2. Bert and Ernie

3. Kermit the Frog (and Miss Piggy!)

4. Elmo

5. Punch and Judy

Can you name any more?

    I always loved The Muppets as a child, Animal was my favourite, though i was terrified of him!
    We recently went to see Peppa Pig at the theatre and that was all done with puppets, I wasn’t sure if it would work but my 3 yo loved it!

  3. How can you miss out Sooty???

    We love puppets here, they’re a great aid to building communication skills, and usually a way for more reserved grown up members of the family to let their hair down 🙂
