Folk Toys or Puppets

Puppets Kathputalis or puppets are a common and popular form of entertainment in the villages of India.
Unfortunately, puppet theatre in India is under serious threat from television and cinema, and it may soon be curtains for this animated style of amusement.
You may not find too many puppeteers these days, but what you will find is that these well-crafted marionettes are up for sale and look quite sensational in urban homes. You can take your pick from wooden, clay or rag puppets made in Rajasthan, West Bengal and Kerala.
