The kids will gather round you to hear a favorite story – which you will transform into an unforgettable experience for them!

Puppetry is a marvelous tool for working with children
…but we’re not always able to find or create the right puppet for the story we’d like to tell. Also, some of us feel awkward working the puppets, making noises, or playing characters.

That’s why Pocket Tales was created.

 

Pocket Tales makes puppetry a sheer joy – both for the children and the adult telling the story.

Ever played with kids using a puppet theater?

Ever seen how involved, focused, and enthusiastic they get when puppets show up?

Each Pocket Tales kit is a work of art, made to enrich children’s world with thrilling colors and endless surprises.

Each time the box opens, the kids- and you!- will experience a multi-sensory story and fly away on the wings of imagination.

The kit includes accessories and professional tutorials to help adults fall in love with the world of puppetry, while giving them the tools to deliver a unique, child-tailored theatrical experience.

Hey, it’s me!

My name is Chen, and I’m a puppeteer and art therapist based in Israel.

My idea for Pocket Tales arose from many years of puppeteering for preschoolers in Israel. In my work, I noticed that the staff at many preschools struggles with a lack of sufficient illustrative devices.

Talking with them, I realized they’d benefit immensely from puppetry kits, as well as professional guidance on utilizing this incredible tool, which is particularly suited for young children.

This insight came into even sharper focus during the pandemic, when all outsourced educational activities were put on hold. It was obvious to us that preschools needed an in-house boost, using creative tools that the staff can use when and as needed.
