So Simple So Sweet Review and Giveaway

So Simple So Sweet is an Etsy shop run by Heidi, a mom of two young children. Her shop sells finger puppets and homemade cards. The finger puppets have magnets on the back and attach to a glove to use in telling the story. Her shop sells several types of finger puppets based on Bible stories, fairy tales, songs and other learning themes. The puppets are made of foam and the details are drawn onto the foam. Since the glove and the foam pieces have magnets they are interchangeable so you can use the glove for multiple stories. If you would prefer the pieces to be permanently attached she can attach them without the magnets. She also welcomes custom orders.

The shop carries several different themes of finger puppets. Here are a few of the sets she carries:


Weather Finger Puppets



Princess Fairytale Fingerpuppets


Train Finger Puppets



Little Red Riding Hood Finger Puppets



Daniel in the Lions Den Finger Puppets


She also makes single finger puppets.


Pirate Single Finger Puppet


Heidi also sells adorable cards. Here are a few of the cards in her shop:


Floral Stripe Thank You Card



Teacher Thank You Apple Card
Childrens Ladybug Card


I was sent a Noah's ark themed finger puppet set for review. The set was so detailed. The animal and ark details are drawn on the foam! The glove is so easy to use and comes in three different sizes: large, small and kids size. I took the glove and Noah's ark pieces out and used it with my three year old to tell her the story of Noah's ark.



She really enjoyed me telling the story. She learns much better visually and through hands-on experiences than through stories in books. I think that this is a fabulous tool for teaching preschoolers and children that learn well through hands-on or visual activties. I would definately recommend So Sweet So Simple's finger puppets.
