Halloween is barely a month away however it is never too early to plan your costume. For little girls or big girls that want to go as Mary in the nursery rhyme “Mary had a Little Lamb” the lamb puppet or the sheep puppet is a perfect choice. Made by Folkmanis the lamb and sheep puppets come alive in the hands of an expert or an inexperienced novice. Mary could hold the lamb or sheep in the same way you would hold a real lamb or sheep. With one hand it is easy to work the mouth while giving expression and lifelike facial movements by simply moving the knuckles, the fingers and even the wrist. With the opposite hand crossed underneath it is also easy to create movement toward the back of the lamb or sheep puppet by moving the legs, the lower torso or even the small wig like tail. For realism the best puppet is the baby lamb puppet shown upper left. For body movement the lamb puppet would also allow for a greater feeling for creativity. For a more humorous looking lamb puppet or sheep puppet the small and large woolly sheep puppets shown middle and bottom are a better selection. All three have easy to work mouths for making the most famous lamb or sheep sounds by going bahhhh, bahhh. Similarly all three have lamb or sheep like coat to further create an illusion of realism. Best of all three lamb and sheep puppets are unique to the puppeteer since each partnership is dependent on the creator to bring the puppet to life with it’s own special personality. Halloween is a great time to dress up for young girls through ladies going to office parties. For girls and ladies who wish to go as Mary Little Lamb the lamb or sheep puppets will help make this Halloween special and a whole lot of fun, isn’t that what Halloween is all about.
