Humbug – Large Lamb/Sheep Puppet

Add Arm Rods?

Add a Storage Bag?

Make it full body?

Another addition the Creative Productions collection is this fabulous fluffy lamb puppet! Humbug features a black face and white fur body. He is great for capturing the attention of any audience, young or old.


Humbug is precision built by hand by the One Way UK Creative Production team of professional puppet builders for the highest quality finish and function. Features our signature ball grip in the mouth.


Key Features:

  • Hand built in the UK by our team of professional puppet builders
  • 45cm tall, light weight and easy to use
  • Versatile and full of character, he is just waiting for you to bring him to life!
  • Operated by one hand in the mouth of the puppet (entry at the base of his body) and the other hand controlling the two arm rods, animating Humbug’s arms
  • Also available as a full body character (see options above)
  • Available exclusively from One Way UK.


Puppet options explained:

  • Arm Rods – 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.
    Standard Rods (+£6) – Our original wooden handle with steel rod design
    Stealth Rods (+£9.99) – Upgrade to our beautifully made ‘stealth’ rods. These arm rods are finished with a matt black coating to help them disappear and blend into the background.
  • Puppet Storage Bag – 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.
  • Full Body – Enhance your puppet with legs to create a complete puppet that can be taken outside of the stage and used for storytelling, solo performances/puppetry or interacting with the audience.
    Standard Full Body (+£50) – The entry to the puppet is still in the same position as the half body version (at the base), but two legs to match the style of the arms are added to the front of the puppet.
    Vent Full Body (+£100) – The body of the puppet is adapted so that the entry position for your hand is now at the back of the body making the puppet rest in a natural position which is easy to operate alongside you. The legs are also attached lower down, creating a more authentic ‘standing’ position for your puppet.

    Humbug was the first ‘Large Animal’ puppet that I purchased from One Way UK as I thought she (we refer to her as a she’ep…although she could quite easily be a boy) would be versatile and that there would be lots of ways that she could be used…and this has certainly been the case! Since we’ve had her she’s featured as the ‘Lost Sheep’, at Easter events, Christmas events, in our Puppet Nativity as well as at our Holiday Club and on many other occasion…where she is loved by young and old alike. So if you are looking to get a first puppet…I’d certainly (highly) recommend Humbug as she’s an amazing puppet…with lots of character, who is very easy to work with. I promise you will fall in love with her…and she quite likely won’t be your last purchase from One Way UK.

    We sold our dinghy to buy two sheep puppets from One Way UK, and do not regret it one bit! Humbug has been re-named as (imaginatively) ‘Sheep’, and Jacob is now ‘Texel’, but ‘Sheep’ is the star of the show – having a fan club, and adoring fans most weeks at our Breakfast Church. We filmed 56 Sheep videos during lockdown – mostly from our kitchen, and each time I looked back at the recordings I loved the way that the face and ears were so animated – without really trying to add extra character to the performance (it was hard enough reading the scripts off the fridge door while sitting sideways on the floor). Sheep is lightweight too and has plenty of room inside the head. I highly recommend all the One Way UK sheep puppets – they can be part of a performance, or take over the whole show! If we had another dinghy we would get Flissy and Rogan!

    Thank you One Way UK!!! I have been doing ventriloquism for just under a year now and already had one puppet. So I thought it might be time for a new one – to find him a friend… I searched loads of websites without any luck but when I found One Way UK I was like ‘woah a website with awesome puppets’! Now, I don’t save my pocket money too much so I only had about £100. But when I saw Humbug I fell in love with her. I really really really wanted to get her. I spent 4 months saving up and eventually I got enough money to purchase the full vent body version that I wanted. I was sooooooo excited waiting for her to arrive – every time our doorbell rang I would be straight at the door. When she finally arrived I was away… I just couldn’t wait to get home to see her. I kept willing my parents to drive home faster! Now I have her she is the BEST quality and is getting on very well with my other puppet. She is well made and very easy to use. Would recommend to anyone who would like a first puppet or even someone with loads of experience! She is the best puppet and I could not have wished for any better – thank you sooo much!!!

How big is this puppet if you ordered the full vent body version? Thanks Meg asked on 05/03/2022

Hi Meg, thanks for your question! A full vent body Humbug would be approx. 1m tall. Hope this helps :)
