You've heard about the Puppet Stories children's books ... Now you can take the main characters, Geo and Beauty, home along with a special Puppet Stories puzzle!
Did you know that we’ve sold more than 30 000 copies of our Puppet Stories books? The Two Oceans Aquarium’s Marguerite Venter created these children’s books especially for little ones who love the Aquarium (and what little one doesn’t?) – as well as for those parents who wish to extend the Aquarium experience beyond the visit.
Each book in the series - My Wild Pets, I Live Smart, Keep the Beach Clean and I Love Turtles - delivers an entertaining story, a myriad magical sea animals and important, easy to understand environmental lessons that will ensure the child is not only having fun, but is also actively fostering his or her own connection to the ocean, and to all life.
New additions to the family!
To amplify the learning experience even further, we are very pleased to announce that we’ve added Puppet Stories hand puppets and puzzles to the mix.
Our main characters, Geo and Beauty, can now come home with you, in the form of hand puppets (R80 for both), while the A4 sea-animal puzzle you may be familiar with already (it’s a smaller version of the one you’ll see in the I&J Children’s Play Centre) can be built every day. A fridge-magnet or a wooden version of the puzzle is available for purchase at R90 each.
Want the whole shebang? Our Puppet Stories pack contains both hand puppets, a puzzle and a book of your choice for R200.
These new additions to the Two Oceans Aquarium Puppet Stories family were lovingly and locally made by the Grow Learning Company, which is run out of Salt River in Cape Town.
You can purchase these items online today and collect them on your next visit to the Aquarium. Alternatively, you can buy them right here at the Aquarium when you next visit -- enquire inside at the I&J Children's Play Centre snack shop.
Teachers! Did you know that we can bring our very popular environmental educational puppet shows to your school? Children between the ages of 3 and 9 will love meeting all our characters. A Puppet Stories pack is a lovely additional resource to add to your repertoire after our roaming Puppet Stories puppet show visits your class.
