Our set of Diwali puppets or Diwali puppets (Ramayana) hand puppets depict the main characters of the Indian epic, the Ramayana (the story behind the festival of Divali). The five puppets in the pack are Rama, his wife Sita, his brother Lakshman, his friend Hanuman the monkey general and his enemy the demon Ravana with ten heads. Included in the pack are accessories such as a golden deer, Rama's slippers and his ring and a laminated story. These puppets can also be used to tell other stories from the Ramayana. Colours and designs shown on this website are representative only as a wide variety of fabrics are used.
Review by one of the Amazon customer Marina:
I have never written a review before for any of the lovely things I have bought on amazon but I feel particularly moved to write a review on this product.
I was expecting something very small and just a bit helpful for me to demonstrate the Diwali story to my class of children with learning difficulties. What I received were fabulous hand puppets that are brilliantly made and exquisitely designed. I just know the children will love them and Diwali will be brought alive for them.
I definitely would recommend and will be looking out for east west education products from now on.
And just to add to my love for this product was a note inside explaining that they are made by Indian women who are using these products to build a future for their families, what could be better than puppets made by those who probably have heard and told these stories for decades
