This owl puppet has a moving wing. To make the wing flap, pull the wire handle down gently.
The last image shows the owl with the tree 'scape, but this listing is for the owl puppet only.
This item ships priority mail within the US, and first class international mail (about 10 business days) everywhere else. Please contact me if you are interested in a larger order- I can calculate exact shipping and make a custom listing for you.
All my shadow puppets are laser cut from matboard (this is the sturdy, thick board used for picture framing). I feel this material allows me to make more delicate designs that can still hold up as a toy for children or adults!
The puppets are all designed with moving parts, so the mermaid "swims", the T-rex "roars" and the Toothfairy "can fly". I now use a pop-fastener for the puppet joints which is made from recycled plastic-- this fastener is safer for children because it cannot come undone once the puppet is assembled.
Because my puppets have sticks and wires, I would not recommend them for children under 4, and always under parent supervision.
Also, I have found that the multi-jointed puppets (Mermaid, seamonster, T-rex, and diplo) are the most satisfying for young performers. These designs are the most intuitive to operate with a stick in each hand.
All my puppets are my own original designs, please do not copy or use images without permission.
