Hand Puppets

When I was a child, I made my own hand puppets and marionettes, and gave shows several times a year for the neighborhood kids. That later became a fascination for animation, which led me to my career. Anything that can be given a personality by myself is always fun. I still collect and make puppets, and here are a few unusual ones: A bird nest full of baby birds, a little box containing tiny mice, a sock puppet given to me by my son, a Hansel and Gretel glove-puppet, and a little willy finger puppet. I know, I'm still a kid in my 50's!

Your puppet collection is great. The glove puppet is too cool!

Have a good day!
