Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This was something different for us. There are so many puppets in here if you were interested in this art form you would surely find something here. The owner at the time was constructing a permanent structure of a 40,000 piece jigsaw puzzle which was fascinating to hear about.

The Kaniva Puppet shop is a treasure in the extremely friendly town of Kaniva. I stopped on my return through Kaniva after a road trip to learn there was a Christmas in July workshop next day. Julie ran a very professional and extremely enjoyable workshop. She ensured that we all left with a very beautiful Christmas Wreath.
My eye constantly alighted on a another unique hidden treasure. No only does the the store abound with an amazing range of puppets from all I we the world she also has. Cosy Christmas room with a unique range of for the Christmas collectors such as I.
Thank you Julie for another magical memory from my travels

An unassuming shop in the main street of Kaniva, this puppet shop has a fabulous range of puppets and marionettes and other items to please anyone. The proprietor, Julie is most welcoming and a great source of information as well as a keen ambassador for Kaniva and the local area. Kaniva and its puppet shop were a real find.

Kaniva is a small but neat and tidy town. Discovered this shop by accident. A little gem. Puppets of every shape and size. Also a huge range of jigsaws. Find a child and explore.
