Folkmanis’ Jabberwock puppet

Folkmanis’ Narwhal puppet

Sea creatures are wonderful.  I absolutely love anything having to do with the sea, except for cleaning fish.  But that’s a tale for another time; right now I’ve got a puppet with an actual tail; the Narwhal puppet from Folkmanis. … Continue reading

Folkmanis’ American Kestrel puppet

I love raptors.  No, not the ones you seen in Jurassic Park.  Those are terrifying, even though I know they’re nothing but CGI.  I’m talking about the types of birds that are also called Birds of Prey.  From Owls to … Continue reading

Folkmanis Puppets: Little Hedgehog

Well, I finally got my first Folkmanis puppet to review, and appropriately enough, it’s the Little Hedgehog — and let me tell you, he’s a real charmer. The construction is up to Folkmanis’ usual standard. The body is covered in … Continue reading

Folkmanis Puppets: Baby Sea Otter

Well, another cutie from Folkmanis came across my desk — or maybe I should say, “swam” across my desk: it’s their Baby Sea Otter hand puppet, and it’s a real cutie. As is the norm with Folkmanis, the workmanship and … Continue reading

Folkmanis Puppets: Alpaca

I have another puppet from Folkmanis — the Alpaca. It strikes me as rather odd to make an alpaca puppet, but this one is not without its charm. First off, it’s a very woolly little critter, and fairly large — … Continue reading
