Puppet is an object resembling a human, animal or mythical figure animated by a person called a puppeteer. The puppeteer uses movements of their hands, arms, or control devices such as rods or strings to move the body, head, limbs, and in some cases the mouth and eyes of the puppet. The puppeteer often speaks in the voice of the character of the puppet, and then synchronizes the movements of the puppet's mouth with this spoken part.The actions, gestures and spoken parts acted out by the puppeteer with the puppet are typically used in storytelling.
