These expressive little rod puppets were one of the earliest workshop puppets designed by Artelle Puppets. We needed something really fun and easy enough for anyone to make during our workshops - something colourful, and something that reflected the personality and creativity of each person making the puppet. "Puffoon Puppets" have been hugely popular, especially with library programs and community centre activities. These quirky and entertaining 10-inch characters have also been helpful to groups of Girl Guides eager to earn their sewing badges!
