Puppets and marionettes are intriguing for all ages, as well as educational. Educational? Well, a pirate opens up the fascination of history, sailing, oceanography, literature and just good fun playacting. It also can begin a lesson on acting, entertainment and the Renaissance. A marionette is an encyclopedia of unschooling information. These wooden marionettes are skillfully dressed for creative, imaginative play. They are approximately 15 inches tall, excluding the strings. The marionette comes in a window presentation box. My son and I spent a whole day playing games, making up stories, and at one point, we even read part of Robert Louis Stevensons Treasure Island the marionette playing all the pirate parts while Danny and I did the voices.
