How to get started:
- Attach Arm Rods (see our how-to video here)
- To control the mouth, one hand (normally the one you write with) goes inside the puppet, the entry is at the base
- Inside the mouth, place four fingers on top and your thumb on the bottom (into the ‘chin’), sliding your fingers under the elastic for a firm grip to easily open and close the mouth
- The other hand operates the two arm rods, animating their arms (a bit like chopsticks) for a realistic performance
- and away you go! Remember, this is just how to begin, the potential for your puppet is huge! To find out more and to see our range of training resources and upcoming training events, click here…
Puppet options explained:
- Arm Rods (+£5) – Save £2 by buying the arm rods with your puppet! Normally £7 a pair. To truly get the most out of your puppet, we always recommend adding a pair of arm rods to animate your puppet’s arms. Easily attached with an elastic band around the wrist of the puppet, they can now point, scratch their head, fold their arms, applaud and even more! Includes a small bag of elastic bands to get you started.
- Puppet Storage Bag (+£14.99) – These are made exclusively for One Way UK and are suitable for up to two large puppets. With a clear window so you can see who is inside, an arm rod storage slot and a hanging hook for easy transport and storage, they really are the best way of keeping your puppets safe, clean and ready to perform!
- Dressed – As standard, our puppets come dressed in a removable long sleeve top. However, if you fancy yourself as a bit of a fashion stylist and wanted to dress them yourself, they can be ordered ‘undressed’ (saving £2) and we recommend 18-24 months size children’s clothing which fits perfectly.
- Full Body Just Legs (+£16.99) – This option simply includes a separate pair of legs with your puppet, these are not sewn on or include any clothing or shoes, but it does include full instructions explaining how to change your puppet from a half body puppet into a full body puppet. This allows you to choose the clothing for yourself and also how the legs are attached.
- Full Body Yes, Ready Made (+£45) – This option is for a complete full body puppet, with the legs sewn onto the body, fully dressed with trousers, socks and shoes. A complete full body puppet ready to go!
