Treasures of Paris #6. Les Marionnettes du Marais

For this new issue of my special places to visit in Paris, it is a great pleasure to introduce Les Marionnettes du Marais! A couple of days ago, I received this amazing finger puppet (pic above) as a gift, and since then I've fallen in love with this funny monkey; it is as little as it could be held in my pocket! This cute puppet comes from Roxana Pecquet's shop, a little pearl of hand-knitted creations in the heart of the Marais district in Paris, just beyond the Musée Carnavalet... Les Marionnettes du Marais!

The handmade activity of Roxana is really amazing. Her boutique is unbelievably fulfilled with hundreds of colorful puppets: princes and princess, wolves and red ridding hoods, witches and fairies, Roxana proposes a wide range of characters since 17 years ago, when she started her activity here in Paris. From the characters of classic tales to almost all the animal existing in nature, these cuties stimulate your imagination and let you perform great theatrical shows, able to satisfy even the most exigent child simply thanks to the waving your fingers!!

Therefore, I find that these fingers puppets are not only very cute; they has also a big advantage. Their reduced size makes them suitable for typical small parisian apartments: in few square meters, by their help it will be possible to organise real theatrical "colossal", with dozens of characters and walker-ons; the only limit, this time, will be the number of hands you will dispose!
Roxana and her assistant Olivia welcome customers from all corners of the world, which are looking for a unique and dreamy gift, at Les Marionnettes du Marais, in Paris, 15 rue Elzevir, 75003, contact • tel
