Anything is Possible...seriously.
A 16" Pre-sewn puppet comes with a variety of features to add as you see fit. Every character is unique, and you're the designer. This is a good option for getting right to the fun of adding eyes, hair, teeth, feathers...then make some laughs! No sewing, just hot glue
Draw your character and make it! Materials cut out and ready to assemble will be sent to you. A tutorial video link will help you create your puppet. *A live, personal zoom lesson: add $50 for 1 hour. Can require some easy hand sewing and hot gluing.
Puppet parties are the most popular and fun time to spend with family when you're stuck in the DING, DANG HOUSE. This puppet pack comes with makings for 5 puppets...heads, bodies to mix and match, hairs, eye makings, lots of furs and yarn, and thingies to create 5 unique characters. Each additional puppet is $55. Do it! It's fun! Includes video instructions
Soft and small hand puppets for pre-school age humans. You can help them glue on eyes, hair, noses, snouts...
*$10 for each additional puppet...add as many as you need. Funzy for tiny tot parties.
Start with an assortment of furs, feathers, eyes, thing-a-majiggers, and your imagination.
You may customize your request if you want a "theme", such as animals, robots, 12 angry men, monkeys, or just random cute monsters.
It's pretty fun to make your pet talk. It's also fun to send as a gift to someone who really loves theirs. It's really, REALLY fun to have a pet that can do Zoom calls.
Send us a photo or two of the pet you want puppet-ed and within a few weeks, you'll be going on walks, having conversations about dry vs. canned, baths (love 'em or hate 'em)
All types of creatures welcome.
Unicorn Cats exist, by the way. I've seen 'em.
You don't have groom your hair for all the online work meetings or school, anymore...get a puppet "you"!

You can only get it right!
Since 2011, Stephani* has taught 100's of humans to build puppets.
This has been a tricky time, because Half Pint Puppets has been successfully luring people, young and old, away from computer screens to draw, build, perform with their hands...puppetry. To stay safe and healthy ,we'll provide online puppet making fun, and look forward to getting together when it's possible for us. In the meantime, if you have ideas for a puppet of your own that you'd like to create, we can help. Just send us a message. All ideas are welcome!
Before Half Pint Puppets was born, Stephani designed and built big, furry costumes for Children's Educational Theater in Salem, Oregon. While attending a workshop at The 2nd City in Chicago (name dropping), she attended an improvised puppet show, and was hooked. Puppets are like a costume for your hand! Stephani taught puppet building, along with costuming, at the Children's Educational Theater until moving to Seattle with the quest of putting a puppet on every hand in the city!
Now it's your turn to make a puppet!
*Stephani is the person writing this bio. It's strange to write in the 3rd person, but no one else is here to do this.
You may think you'll just be learning to build a puppet, but magic and wonderful things happen here. Communication, imagination, story creation, and most importantly...a bunch of funny fun!
Children from 4 to adult. We can work with all age groups and special needs, too. We like to say "yes" and will build a program and puppet for any situation.
Call us with your own ideas of how we can make puppets with you, your family, classroom, office....Build a puppet and change the world!
