Language And Speech

The Kumquats hand puppets are a great support to speech therapists when working with children.

Remember, every child is unique and will reach their milestones in different ways and times. The language spoken at home and cultural norms can influence the way that we communicate.

For that reason we have developed our special hand puppets with teeth and a flexible tongue. They are a unique aid to demonstrate the mouth and tongue position. The tongue can be moved in between or behind the teeth. The child can follow the movement of lips and tongue and can copy the puppet. We have learned that kids are more likely to follow the instructions of a puppet than of an adult.

For Senior Citizens

In the last couple of years we have seen a positive change in nursing homes. The trend we have observed is to provide pleasure to the aging people whenever possible. Our puppets can spread the smile and are a healthy change in their daily routine.


Kumquats hand puppets are a great way to improve the communication and the emotional state. Ten minutes of interaction with the puppets help to activate people with dementia or vigil coma. We have seen it many times and it is so rewarding to see people smile again and interact with the puppet.

KUMQUATS in Kindergarden

Kumquats love the kindergarten. It is one of their sweet spots and you can use them in many different ways:

start a group session
easy way to connect to the children
to solace (minor injuries, personal problems)
role plays
as a birthday surprise (puppet appears only to celebrate a birthday with the kids)
 
The Kumquats-puppets help to develop creativity and free speech. They also support kindergarten teachers conveying specific topics as the puppets are part of the group. It makes the subject thaught more accessible to them. As the puppets are bigger than usual handpuppets it is easier for the kids to relate to the puppet.
