Design and Construction
Made from your design or description, we can construct exactly what you need. We can do custom orders from finger puppets to full sized mascot costumes. Our most common request is for Muppet style arm/rod puppets.
Most puppets have a six to eight week turn around. If we have room on our schedule, we may be able to accept rush jobs for an additional fee.
Rebates for web-series and production puppets are available. We also give discounts to certified teachers who use puppets in the classroom, and licensed therapists.
All of our puppets are hand made to your specifications. PLEASE NOTE: As a professional courtesy, we do not make copies of puppets already in existence.
You can submit a request for an estimate for your own custom puppet HERE.
We teach puppet construction classes around the Los Angeles and Orange County areas. We can also come to you and teach your group, anywhere in the US.
Due to time constraints, our current class list has been cut down. We currently offer our four hour construction course on a limited basis. Private classes are available for groups of four, and open classes are available for up to 8 participants.
Children over the age of 13 may participate, but only with a parent or guardian who is also enrolled in the class. Participants are required to sign a liability waiver, and agree to handle all tools and sharp/hot implements with care. All attendees must be sober during class instruction.
Skype and web streaming videos may be available, based on production schedules. Hosts and participants must sign and return waivers in advance, and also sign agreements not to record or distribute photos/videos during instruction process.
We can custom make a puppet for your production, provide puppeteers, or both. When requesting a quote, please specify if your shoot is union/non-union, your production schedule (or general timeline), if you are working with green screen, and if you have a story board/script. We will always make sure to ask about signing a non-disclosure agreement if we aren't asked within the first hour on set, so you don't have to worry about tracking us down later. Puppet rental is available for productions on a limited basis, within the Los Angeles County Area only.
