Shadow Puppets

A little 'puppet-magic' in the darkness!

Shadow puppets have a rich history spanning centuries and cultures. Originating in ancient China around 200 BCE, they utilized animal hides and light to create silhouettes. Traveling along trade routes, shadow puppetry spread to India, Indonesia, and Greece.

Quality shadow puppets are hard to find ... so this range is small. We love the set we offer and encourage you to expand by making your own.

There's nothing quite like shadow puppetry which has evolved into a storytelling art form, captivating audiences with intricate characters and tales. Today, shadow puppets continue to enchant audiences worldwide, blending tradition with modern technology.
