Puppets are a great way for kids to expand their storytelling, motor skills, communicative skills, and imaginations. Unicorn puppets are a great way to add some magical, mythical storylines to their stories about fairies, princesses, and castles. Here are some that we think are pretty cool.

Aurora World Pop-Up Unicorn Plush Puppet

The Aurora World Pop-Up Unicorn Plush Puppet will provide for hours of creative fun as your kids create magical stories.

The puppet pulls inside so that it can “pop up” and make the story more fun. We love how colorful this puppet it with its pink, white, and blue colors and the pretty rainbow colored shooting star.

My husband loves to use puppets to interact with his daughter, providing hours of laughter and fun for both of them. Puppets really do open a door to the imagination so that kids can practice coming up with dialogue and scenes. We’ve always had a lot of puppets in our proverbial and literal toy box and I recommend them to any parents who want to help kids’ imaginations soar.

This cute guy measures 11″ tall.

The Puppet Company Long Sleeves Unicorn Hand Puppet

The Puppet Company Long Sleeves Unicorn Hand Puppet measures about 15 inches. As its name implies, it is a long puppet that almost reaches to the elbow. It is soft with nice detailing and would make a great addition to any puppet collection.

This unicorn looks regal with the gold detailing on its horn. I can totally imagine this unicorn in a skit alongside a beautiful princess fighting an evil dragon puppet.

Fun puppet fact … Actor Neil Patrick Harris collects puppets. He once said, “I collect puppet stuff. I have a puppet workshop in my garage. I was looking for any opportunity to be able to get very creatively involved in that world.”

Put on awesome puppet shows and help the environment at the same time! Cate and Levi makes some whimsical, colorful unicorn puppets out of polar fleece that is made out of recycled plastic water bottles.

No two unicorn puppets are the same so each time you buy one you will be getting an original. Before you buy this puppet, make sure you’re okay with not knowing what you’ll be getting. If you’re hoping for a girly looking puppet for your daughter and you end up getting a black and brown puppet, you may be disappointed. In that case, it might be better to order a puppet from a different company. But if you’re passionate about the environment and want a toy that will be a complete surprise in the way it looks, these might be a fun choice.

The Cuddleuppets Magic Unicorn is, like all Cuddleuppets, incredibly warm, fuzzy, and cuddly. It’s also a lot of fun because you can make it talk like a puppet, dance, and anything else your child’s imagination can dream up.

It expands into a 39″ x 28″ blanket making it an all around useful item to have around the house. They’re great for car travel and travel in general.

We keep a big assortment of puppets and marionettes in our home to help the kids put on elaborate shows. The more props they have to fuel their imaginations, the better, as far as we’re concerned.
