Announcement    Welcome to our new Etsy store. I had a website for our Eye Patch Puppets but decided to bring them onto Etsy. As of now we only have "The Eye Patch Kids" DVD available but soon we will have t-shirts & accessories with your favorite puppet on them.

Our Story: When my son Joshua was first diagnosed with Amblyopia and we got a prescription for glasses and bought the eye patch we were clueless on how to get him to wear it. When I asked the doctor she just said “I don’t know, but just get him to wear it.” After many days of struggling with him to wear the eye patch and him leaving it on for only 30 seconds I was very frustrated. Then one day a man came on a cartoon wearing an eye patch and my son who originally wanted nothing to do with the patch took it out of the drawer and handed it to me to put it on him. I didn’t realize at first why he wanted it on, but was very happy and put it on him immediately. Then he went back into the other room and started trying to dance and copy the man on tv with the patch on. I was jaw dropped when I saw this. Then I thought to myself, I wonder if I can take our camcorder and make a quick little movie on it to play on our TV with puppets with eye patches on for him to copy. Well it worked great and I didn’t have any problems anymore with him. Then after researching the internet I realized that there were so many other kids out there going through the same thing as my son and that’s when I decided to make this available to all kids. So I sat down at my computer and typed up a rough draft of the script and my sister put in her two cents and then I made all the puppets, backgrounds, etc. and we hired a production company to film it.
