Andina areas, but probably lots of places: "Finger puppets" Top 5 Page for this destination Peru Shopping Tip by melosh

Peru Shopping: 39 reviews and 35 photos

Are you looking for something to give every little child you know? I bought 80 knitted finger puppets for the children of my wife's Charter School. Less than 30 cents each (about one sole) except for some of the more intricate ones with 2 figures knitted together. You will have to pick and chose if you wish to not buy lions or camels. Very easy to carry, soft, fit anywhere, can be compressed without damage and can be used to protect fragile items.

What to buy: Handmade items from as close to the producer as possible.

What to pay: A pittance for neat handy work.

Theme: Gifts
