The Playstages(TM) product line is an innovative
new step in the age-old tradition of theater and
puppetry. Theater has long been used to explore
emotional, social, heroic, tragic, comic, and
fantastical realms. Puppetry allows for
exploration of the same themes, often on a
smaller, more personal scale. For children and
youth, puppets represent a powerful, yet safe and
comfortable way to explore ideas and interaction.

Founded in May 2000, Playstages Incorporated
offers lasting platforms for creative, expressive,
interactive, and "dramatically different fun"
play for kids ages six through sixteen.
Playstages(TM) products are in use by educators,
caregivers, youth groups, camps, and consumers
in 39 states.
