- Kenneth Grahame, The Wind in the Willows, Ch. 10
Mr. Toad is a one-of-a-kind hand crafted marionette. He is entirely hand-made of polymer clay painted with acrylic paints and varnishes, and dressed in a costume hand-sewn from fabric remnants. He has a leather driving helmet and goggles. He hangs from a wooden "airplane" style controller on sturdy upholstery thread. He is jointed with heavy gauge copper wire. Each puppet is a one-of-a-kind creation.
I also have Ratty, Mole and Badger available in separate listings.
Mr. Toad himself is 14" tall
The whole puppet including controller is 22"
A simple twist of the controller will make him walk, but h e is really designed to simply be displayed so you can just let him hang around the house. Although Mr. Toad is based on a children's book, he is not a toy, and is meant to be played with by adults.
NOTE: I can offer the set of all 4 Wind in the Willows marionettes for a reduced price of $950 for the set - please contact me if interested in the set.
