  • Why Custom Puppets?
    Custom puppets are one-of-a-kind creations built to your specifications. Everything created for our puppets are made from scratch—from creating foam and fleece patterns, dying fleece, custom eye shapes, etc. Unlike "store-bought" puppets, custom puppets are made with high-quality materials such as reticulated foam and nylon fleece. We always want to keep character and personality at the front of our minds when creating a custom character. Specific character traits aren't found in mass-manufactured puppets. So if you're looking for something special, custom puppets are the way to go. Whether it is for the screen, stage, or any other venue, our puppets are sure to stand out.
  • How To Create a Good Character?
    Before we cover how to create a good character, we first need to cover why character is important. A great character makes a puppet more than just a puppet. It allows the audience, whoever they may be, to connect and relate with the puppet. A good character has depth and is "real" to the audience. Now on to creating a good solid character. It's important to have a well-rounded idea of the traits of the puppet. For instance, you should know the age, personality traits, attitude, likes and dislikes, hobbies, etc. The more you know about the puppet, the better the character. Our main goal is to establish physical characteristics that reveal the character's invisible qualities. When you see the puppet, BAM, you should know exactly who they are. The importance of solid character traits cannot be overstated.
  • How Much Does a Custom Puppet Cost?
    The price of a custom puppet can vary from project to project. Factors that contribute to this are materials needed, the size of the puppet, and the complexity of the design. Feel free to reach out to us with your idea and we'll be happy to help.
  • How Long Does It Take to Build a Custom Puppet?
    The amount of time to complete a custom puppet can vary based on the complexity of the project. An addtional fee may be incurred for an expedited request.
  • What Is the Process for Building a Custom Puppet?
    Every puppet begins with an idea. Tell us your project idea by emailing us under the "Get A Quote" tab. Try to be as detailed and specific as possible, as it will help us get a good understanding of what you want. Helpful info includes the budget of the project, the overall design, the environment it will be used in, and how it will be performed. The most critical aspect of all is the character and personality of the puppet. Our main goal is to make sure that you know precisely who that puppet is when you look at it. Send any pictures or sketches that you may have of what you want the puppet to look like. Remember that modifications may occur to the design to ensure that the concept can be realized into a fully functioning puppet. We'll go back and forth to discuss all of the details of the project. After this, We'll draw up a preliminary sketch and give a quote for the calculated cost and estimated timeline of completion . Before the build process, a non-refundable down payment of half of the total price will be required. We will keep you updated throughout the process by providing you with pictures and/or videos. This includes approving the shape of the puppet, colors, and more. Once the project is completed, the final payment is due. Upon payment, your custom puppet will be shipped within 3 business days.
