Recently, I was sent the cutest and most original puppet from Puppet Heap Work Shop. Her name is Lucy, and she is the Cat and the Fiddle, from the Mother Hubbard Among Others Series. This series was just released last month and is their first line of hand puppets designed for everyone. The first six characters, Mother Hubbard, Toby (her dog), Lucy (the cat and the fiddle), The Constable, The Doctor and the Cabby, are the first in a series of puppets which populate the town of Spudbottom.
My boys could not wait to see this puppet come alive. They both took turns being the puppet master and there was laughing and giggles all around. This 13 inch puppet is machine washable, made of 100% dyed polyester fabric and filling, includes a detachable fiddle and bow and is recommended for ages 6 and up. If you are looking for a unique gift this holiday season check out Puppet Heap Work Shop’s puppets. We like them so much we are putting them on our 2011 Holiday Gift Guide.
Everything Puppet Heap does is a profound spirit of play. Nothing could be more essential to life or the art of puppetry. Any production involving puppets, regardless of its complexity or sophistication, moves Puppet Heap only when it’s born of a sense of play. The Puppet Heap team is constantly striving to nurture its open and creative environment to foster spontaneity and experimentation. The result is work that is unique, lively, and original.
