Hand PuPink Poppyet Maori Boy 30cm


Hand Puppet Maori Boy 30cm

Our bestselling soft dolls and puppets have undergone a makeover. Designed in collaboration with a cultural integrity consultant, the dolls and puppets now better serve their intended purpose: "For the children of Aotearoa to see themselves and their peers represented".

This easy to use hand puppet is dressed in a traditional Maori kapa haka outfit. This puppet is soft and easy to use. The cushioning makes it comfortable for adults or children to use and the mouth can open and close. Puppets are a way for children to learn through play as well as re-enact and make sense of their everyday lives, perfect for any home, school or early childhood centre.

Presented with a simple hang tag and a hook to merchandise easily, this puppet is easy to present for customers to touch and feel for themselves. The swing tag advises that these were developed in collaboration with a cultural consultant, helping your customers understand that these were created with respect for te ao Maori.

Kia Ora, I'm Tama.
Tama loves to partake in kapa haka. He practices with his pouwhenua often and loves to do a fierce whetero. His favourite part of kapa haka is performing with his whanau and friends.
Tama and his twin sister Hine are brought up by his wider whanau, where they practice the meaning behind the saying:
"Ma te hapu te tamaiti e whakatupu"
The responsibility of raising a child rests with the wider community.
