Nico is a smart character! Top of the class at school and popular with everyone. Let him help you to reach new heights in your performance with style.
As well as a sculpted body shape, custom sculpted hair, a high level of detail on his eyes and face, including our signature ball grip in the mouth. Nico also has a range of other professional and luxury features such as:
1. Fixed and hidden rods
– Having a removable fixed rod gives full control of the puppet’s wrist enhancing their character, also by slotting into the wrist (no elastic bands needed!) with the black finish helps stop the rods becoming a distraction as they blend into the background.
2. Separate neck tube
– This keeps the head of the puppet as a separate component, creating an especially easy to use and flexible head for increased level of manipulation and movement.
All this helps give you the best platform possible to create a character with loads of personality and expression, enhancing your performances with easy, realistic movements!

Puppet options explained:
- 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 (+£80) – 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 (+£120) – 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.
