The traditional children's entertainment sector, puppetry, continues to establish itself in the modern market with a host of new products for 2013.
Flair is expanding its portfolio in 2013 with a collection of CuddleUpPets, featuring some familiar faces from Disney.
Minnie Mouse, Winnie the Pooh, Tigger and Sully will be heading the innovative range of puppet and cuddle-wrap blanket hybrids.
Meanwhile, Paul Lamond is looking to build on the success of its Brain Noodle series with a range of Make Your Own Kits from Crafty Kids.
The new kits are designed to encourage both creativity and practical skills in children.
Furthermore, John Crane breaks the mould with a collection of Duet Puppets.
Each character in the range can be turned inside-out to reveal its duet character including Dog and Cat, Polar Bear and Penguin, Hare and Turtle and Wolf and Lamb.
