"Believe me my young friend, there is nothing - absolutely nothing - half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats"
Kenneth Grahame - Wind in the Willows

This puppet has been sold but I can make one just for you. He will be as close to this one as possible, but since they are all one of a kind there may be some variation. Please allow 2 weeks for the creation and shipping of the puppet.

This is Ratty all ready to spend his day messing about in boats. He is based on the character from the children's classic Wind in the Willows, by Kenneth Grahame. I also have Mole, Badger and of course Mr. Toad available in separate listings.

Ratty 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 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.

Ratty himself is 11" tall
The whole puppet including controller is 24"

A simple twist of the controller will make him walk. Use him in puppet shows or just let him hang around the house. Although Ratty 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.
