For 10 years, the Puppet effect in the hospital expanded to an impressive six hospitals in Prague and another 19 hospitals and medical institutions throughout the country. During the year and take place within 280 visits, countless performances and sing the harmony thousands of songs.

For the first decade of the years more than ten small productions prepared directly for the hospitalized children. An integral part of visits to pediatric patients, as well as live music.

And as he recalls Mark Míková for the past ten years with the puppets?

"We have in mind the countless stories where after our visit the child began again, talk and laugh, or even eat or managed through frog to find out that the child is able to walk. I remember how Kasparek could find that the child recognizes colors. Also, with more children we cover a lot of the difficult experience of their lives. I have the memory of the little girl which mate during a game stuck under the car. She sat with a broken leg in the bed and kept saying that he will never forgive you. While we discussed, about how he is and how hard it is to apologize and admit a mistake when we were leaving, she said she would give him a chance. It's memorable moments in the hospital with children experiencing. Sometimes we'm really a heavy heart, because children should not be seriously ill, they should run out and play, but on the other hand, every time we experience a small miracle when we leave, we know that our work was really helpful.
