Ooh I love your shop! The nativity finger puppets are probably my favorites. Maybe you could add some more puppets that are farm animal theme? Or felt/flannel pieces that go with popular stories like Goodnight Moon, Ten Little Rubber Ducks, There Was an Old Lady, etc.

Crossing my fingers to win. :)

I love your finger puppets! I'd have such a difficult time deciding whether or not to get Dr Who for myself or princesses for my daughter. It would be fun to have a little book with two scenes to play with them on.

super hero masks! love these finger puppets. I see hours of fun!

Masks or capes would be cool! Those finger puppets are amazing!! My husband, er-I mean son, would love to play with the Star wars or superhero ones!!

Bailey said...

What about tails? I made my son a dinosaur tail for halloween and he loves it. My daughter also loves it.

Lora said...

Masks are a cool idea. I also thought that slightly smaller version of your hand puppets could be magnets.

April Berry said...

These are AWESOME! Would be a great way to make my son sit still in church! Super hero capes and masks would be cool to make. :)

kathy said...

All of the above are great ideas. Masks would be a great addition.

I'm with many others...masks! Your finger puppets are adorable. Heading to your shop right now to take a peek.

Carrie Whittemore said...

These puppets are adorable!! I would love to see felt food! :)

Vacuum Queen said...

Wow! These are impressive! I think that a 70's Wonka group would be fun. Or Charlie brown Christmas or moe thing like that. Ooh...or a Christmas nativity. I'm just very impressed. I saw the Star Wars set and feel in love, but after looking at them all...I love the heroes even more. Nice job!

Hilary said...

Felt food could be super cute!! Or Felt Tools! Oooo or a felt Dr. kit! Those are the things I would make out of felt :)

Ariel Berman said...

More felt foods!! Kale, garlic, butternut squash?

Unknown said...

Felt food is always a winner! If your food turns out half as amazing as your finger puppets and quilts, it will be a huge hit!

Gooba Designs said...

Felt food sounds great and perhaps some Disney Junior characters like Jake and the Neverland Pirates or Doc McStuffins. Thanks and your puppets are awesome!

mollyandmama said...

Thanks for the chance to enter your giveaway. Your little felt creations are gorgeous, and I'd love to see more felt food!

Stephanie said...

I'm partial to felt food (love your pancakes!) and the non-paper dolls are really cute.

Jodie Tawn said...

EmileeHope said...

Love those puppets, esp the princess' & Star Wars characters! I think handmade dolls are always great!

hec546 said...

I love the non-paper dolls. I think if you made them $10+ extra and included a couple more outfits they would be even better. Or perhaps you could make separate add on listings for sets of clothing (3-5 outfits/set)? I think they are ADORABLE but I think my kids would love them even more if they came with more clothing options to play with.
Another note would be that your food is gorgeous. Those pancakes are so darn cute! I'd love to see what other food items you can make.

As an early primary and preschool teacher - I would love to see puppets of book characters (ie. The Gruffalo and characters, the 3 bears etc). I would be alllll over purchasing those to go along with my story telling - your puppets are AMAZING!!!

DeborahGun said...

I love the finger puppets - definitely more of these :-)

Deb (Two Cheeky Monkeys) said...

Ohhh, go the felt food! Felt food is always a winner. :)

Charlotte said...

I love your "felt paper dolls". I think you should expand your wardrobe options

Lia*s Handmades said...

OMG how awesome are the Star Wars puppets? Love them!! And I would have to say felt food, I love this for kids to play. You can make so many things with that and your felt pancakes look absolutely real and yummy.

Sasha said...

I'd go for more finger puppets, Wizard of Oz, Gruffalo and other children's stories!

patti said...

Finger puppets to act out story books, pigs, little red, wolves, etc. Also, how about masks and capes?

patti said...

I follow you by email

Mhairi said...

I like your products, they are creative & look very well made. I like the dress up dolls, perhaps you could do some of the princesses or superheros with optional dressup outfits. Or some plush, felt toys, like a sonic screw driver. Thanks for the giveaway!

Oh felt Superhero masks would be ace!
Great giveaway Julie x

more masks and matching capes.

Finger puppets! Super heroes, minions! Themes like Disney's Planes & Cars & Monsters, and Thomas trains - my three-year old grandson immerses himself with these! Thanks!

Muttmomkay said...

I must have the Dr. Who puppets. Anyway, I was thinking you could branch out into stuffed felt animals? I mean a bit bigger and stands on their own.

EG said...

OH my gosh those are adorable! Would love stuffed animals as well

Serena said...

Masks are always a hit around here.

Crunchy Con Mommy said...

felt food!

Jodi said...

I would suggest you do what you love - I have friends with creative shops and they get run down and uninspired and don't do their best work when they are doing what will "Sell" or whatever has the best "Margins". When they do what they love and what they are passionate about and what gives them joy they create their best work which sells better in the end anyway.

Dani said...

I would suggest characters from the TV series Grimm. They have so many different creatures.

Lindsay Braud said...

I would love to see some Wizard of Oz finger puppets.

icicle said...

I always love more felt food...
Those Star Wars puppets are awesome -- I'm not sure who would play with them more, my kid or my husband!

Lynne said...

Love the Star Wars puppets! I think anything with a more classic/movie/tv show/game theme would be popular (like your Dr Who and Star Wars). Super Mario maybe? Thank you for the great giveaway!

Evans Family said...

my boys would die for the star wars finger puppets! so CUTE!!! my boys are nutty for dress up. they also love playing in their pretend kitchen. i have made play food for them in the past and they are always begging for more!

Oh how cute! My son would love the Star Wars finger puppets!

I'm a massive nerd, so I'd love to see Little House on the Prairie finger puppets.

Masks would be good. My 10 year old still loves to put on a mask and pretend to be someone else.

Breanna S. said...
