Obscure Myth Allusion Award - Yggdrasil

Let's play a game - tell me what you think of when you hear the words "finger puppets"?

Was it Yggdrasil?  You too? 

Evidentally the good people at Purciful's Magical Toys thinks along those lines.  You can see the tree puppet to the left.  Here is there sales copy for it:

In Norse Mythology, Ygdrassil, the World Tree, shelters the planet between roots and branches. Folkmanis has its own great tree, this 17" Sequoia, safely holding the forest animals--finger puppets ready to be an entire puppet show or combine with other Folkmanis creations.

Go Purciful!  I hope that the puppets sold like hotcakes and the copy guy got a raise.
