Definition of Puppets
Gwin (1972: 60) states that puppet is a wonderful toy that can be
controlled by an operator and can teach kids and adult, all kinds of things. 
It is defined by Reyhmer (1997: 339) that a doll with a hollow head a
person or animal and cloth body, intended to fit over the hand be manipulated
with the fingers. While based on Oxford dictionary (1974: 679) puppet is defined
as doll small figure of animal etc, with jointed limbs by wire or strings used in
plays or doll of which the body can be put in the hand like a glove the arms and
head being moved by the fingers on the operation. 
From the definition above, it can be concluded that puppets are parts of
visual aid for teaching strategies especially in teaching vocabulary. It is believed
that puppet can give an element of fun  to learners. By inserting humorous
elements, puppets are intended to attract the student’s attention.

because of their value in helping students in personal development and the
opportunity afforded in activity in the building and operating puppets.
In teaching using puppet as a media, it will be better to take the available
materials. Teaching using puppet can be used as the alternatives technique in
teaching learning process. It is good to know a number of ways to make puppets
so that they can be used at different  levels without repeating some types and
methods of approach.

over the operator’s hand. The garment covers the operator’s wrist and helps
to hide it from views. The index finger fits into the puppets head and the
thumb and middle finger slide into tiny sleeves to form two movable arms.
The hand puppet is operated below the puppet stages.
