EMERYVILLE, Calif. --(Business Wire)-- Feb. 12, 2004 Folkmanis puppets are the perfect toys. These low-tech, time-tested, award-winning toys are educational, captivating, and lovable. They teach social skills, fine and gross motor skills, early language development, and more.
Folkmanis puppets are used as teaching tools, during therapy sessions, and for role and creative play. But the most important thing that makes Folkmanis puppets the perfect toy: kids love them, therefore play value is endless. They become a child's favorite plaything and a lovable companion for life.

Continuing its longtime, award-winning tradition, Folkmanis -- the world's foremost puppet maker -- has brought another assortment of puppets to life with superior innovative and creative designs that children and adults will love.

Here are some highlights at the American International Toy Fair.
