The puppet factory 🎄

Exclusively at Galeries Lafayette Haussmann, children will take part in a unique The Puppet Factory workshop. Supervised by our animator and around the flower island, children are invited to assemble their puppet inspired by the puppet in Charles de Vilmorin’s story.

Each child will be able to play the role of the little girl in the story and bring their own magical character to life in the department store. The puppets will all be personalised in the Galeries Lafayette Haussmann colours and will come with a hanging thread.

Each child will be given their own puppet to hang on their Christmas tree at home, continuing to share the story far beyond the shop walls.

The workshop is open:

  • On the weekends of Saturday 09 and Sunday 10 December from 11am to 7pm.
  • From 16 to 23 December from 11am to 7pm.
