These child-sized puppets can be used to model appropriate feelings and social skills related to children in the classroom or small group therapy. Therapists and teachers can develop bio sketches for their puppets that include the puppet’s name, age, family living situation, pets, special interests, and special difficulties or worries. As children become familiar with the Incredible Years puppet’s personalities they begin to develop empathy for them and identify with them as peers with relatable difficulties and successes.
Teachers and therapists may use these puppets to talk about feelings and problems and share some possible solutions as well as to role-play solutions to difficult situations. Puppets are hand crafted and are available in both genders and a variety of races. Teachers and therapists can change their clothes to represent the climate or the occasion to make them as real as possible.
Puppet size is roughly the height of a 4-year-old-child. Puppets are available within 5 months of order.
