Large Half-body Puppets

ORANGE FLAMINGO (WB922)

Nearly everyone knows what flamingos look like ---pink birds with long legs. You can see them at just about every zoo. You can find them in storybooks. Alice uses flamingos as croquet mallets in Through the Looking Glass (by Lewis Carroll). Images of flamingos, standing under palm trees, appear in paperweights and snow globes. Plastic flamingos make colorful lawn ornaments!! But did you know that some flamingos live high up in the Andes Mountains of South America? Did you know that Flamingos can swim, and flamingos can fly? It’s all true.

Our Flamingos are the largest string puppets we sell (38 inches tall) but they are as easy to operate as our Ostrich Marionettes. They have their own special control (without removable strings) and they come in several beautiful colors.

HORSES OF A DIFFERENT COLOR

You'll be singing "Hello, Ol' Paint" when you see this 38 inch tall Large Horse Marionette in Bronco Brown (WB952A). Sorry, but without the saddle (not included and not an option), we do not recommend riding him. With all those strings, roping him isn't a good idea either. Just be satisfied to make him gallop aound the room or across the stage by rocking his control from side to side! Also available in Black Beauty Black (WB952B) and Hiho Silver Away White (WB952C).

KANGAROO (WB997)

A Kangaroo moves by hopping on its hind legs, using its tail for steering and balancing. They can hop at speeds up to 40mph. When a Kangaroo is moving slowly the tail is used as an extra leg that which offers support standing on its hind legs. Most kangaroos can only move both their back legs together and not one at a time. Kangaroos are found in Australia, Tasmania, and New Guinea. They are grazing animals that eat grass, young shoots and leaves of heath plants and grass trees. They need very little water to survive and are capable of going for months without drinking at all. Our Large Kangaroo Marionette stands nearly 38 inches tall and can hop however high you choose, using the his simple control.

MONKEY (WB963)

Born in the beautiful Coconut Atolls, Maxwell Monkey distinguished himself from his 17 brothers and sisters by being the least ambitious of his parent's children.  Instead of doing his chores, he would climb up a tree to snooze.  At age 6, accidentally harvested with a bunch of coconuts, Maxwell was shipped to the United States where he now works as a sun tan consultant. Maxwell is 38 inches tall if you include the strings.

UNUSUAL UNICORNS

These beautiful horse-like creatures are often described as a symbol of purity (rather than practicality). We feel they probably became mythical because people had such a difficult time putting bridles on them... and those horns kept poking out window screens. 38 inches tall, they come in Wonderous White (WB992A) and Passionate Purple (WB992B).

Sorry, both of these puppets are sold out and more will not be available until mid-2012.
