Magnets - Magnetic Finger Puppet The Unemployed Philosophers Guild

Artist Frida Kahlo was best known for her striking self-portraits, so we'd like to think she'd be amused by this finger puppet version of herself. Frida is dressed in festive Mexican garb, including lace cuffs, red scarf, and floral hair arrangement -- all in a 4-inch puppet! Act out scenes of her in her studio or of her tempestuous romances with Diego Rivera and Leon Trotsky using our Rivera and Trotsky finger puppets (not included, but available on our website)! The bun of her hair also has a secret magnet, so you can stick Frida and Diego together and be comforted by the fact that, after all these years, they're still attracted to each other.


Freddie Mercury and Queen captivated the crowds on tour and at the “Live Aid” benefit concert – with more than a billion viewers all over the world!

Not recommended for use in thunderbolts and lightning (very, very frightening).
