Hand Puppet - Lorikeet / with Soundbox
That flash of colour in the bush!
Elka make some of our most popular puppets ... all designed here in Melbourne. Parents buy these puppets to make bedtime stories more engaging. You don't need to be a pro ... just pop a puppet on your hand and watch the kid's eyes light up. Picture yourself with a beautiful lorikeet puppet ... ready to read Australian stories. This puppet also features a button you can touch to hear a fairly realistic lorikeet sound!
The Lorikeet hand puppet has a hole size suitable for both adults and children. The size of the puppet also means that most people can use their thumb and pinky to animate the wings. Put this all together, and your lorikeet can be hiding its face, wiping its beak, talking and waving its colourful wings about.
Puppets make great gifts, and Elka puppets are particularly affordable. While more expensive puppets do have benefits, you can't predict which toy a child will bond with, and Elka puppets are terribly cute. Puppetry itself fosters creativity, communication, and empathy in children, making learning enjoyable while enhancing social and emotional skills through imaginative play.
