The Shanghai Puppet Theater recently gave a fairy tale puppet show in the Jiading district of Shanghai, enabling locals to gain a better understanding of this traditional Chinese folk art, local media reported on Jan 31.

The show was based on a famous fairy tale – Snow White, which appeals to both parents and children.

With the help of hand puppets and wooden rods, the show presented a vivid and attractive story. It also aroused the kids' interests in the lovely puppets.

Some parents said that the show reminded them of their childhood, since the story was very popular when they were young. 

The organizers said that they expect the children to learn something good from such puppet shows.

The Shanghai Puppet Theater, founded in 1960, is targeted at young children. It is dedicated to introducing puppet art, a traditional Chinese folk art with a long history, to more people so as to preserve and develop this cultural heritage.
