I want to give a hand to WeeKnit on Etsy: they’ve brought together the coolest collection of finger puppets I’ve ever seen. Where else can you find a vampire, a mummy, Frankenstein, a pirate, and a ninja in one place? And would that not be the best high five ever?
I think it would. Especially with Vlad, Imhotep, Frankie, Smee, and Sneaky Lee splayed out over tiny, pudgy fingers playing peek-a-boo. Of course, if the classic Halloween finger puppet favorites don’t float your finger puppet boat, WeeKnit also offers a the original freaky line-up with a witch, pumpkin, spider, ghost, and black cat, all hand-knit with love of acrylic/nylon blend yarn.
I say grab them as party favors (WeeKnit is awesome at accommodating special orders) and give your Halloween shindig a goodie bag alternative to more sugar.
I’m not ashamed to say that seeing my favorite movie and cartoon characters knitted into puppet form totally restores my faith in humanity. -Delilah
Visit WeeKnit more hand-knit finger puppets than you can shake a finger at. But don’t buy an entire handful of ninjas–just think how quiet your kid would be raiding the pantry.
