Shop the Season: Silly Puppets

Sara picks some of her favorite items in the The Holiday Shops, zeroing in on the fun and quirky gift options in the park. Perfect for kids!

It’s hard to resist the antics of a wildly-gesticulating monkey. A monkey puppet, that is. I’m a stoic New Yorker, unmoved by the usual comedy (or drama) of my daily subway commute, but Karen of Silly Puppets cracked me up with her waving, hooting and bouncing monkey puppet ($35).

If you know a child that would rather give voice to a heroic firefighter (or better yet, a dog wearing a firefighting suit), Silly Puppets has something for him, too. In fact, the array of personalities on offer in this one shop is astounding. My favorite is the skeleton hand-puppet pictured bottom left below ($20); it seems a bit unorthodox without being menacing.

  1. Purchased the custom Shakespeare puppet. It's not only a nice piece of folk art but a wonderful handmade smile waiting to happen. These puppets a Puppets are extremely well made. The trip throught Bryant Park was made special. Thanks Silly Puppet.
