Announcement   All my puppets are home-made, hand-sewn, and one-of-a-kind -- if you see a puppet you like, I guarantee you you'll never see it again unless you buy it!

If you're interested in seeing how my puppets "work in real life," I can't recommend enough that you check out DJAK's music video for "On the Radio." Three of my puppets star in the video, and it gives you a great sense of what's possible with them. Here's the YouTube link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vk70GsIzDt0

There's a cat here at home, where I make puppets. While she doesn't sit on or roll around in my fabric, those who suffer from allergies should take note.

I often use vintage materials, so I can't guarantee that any of it is flame-resistant, acid-free, etc. My eco-sense is definitely on the "re-use" end of the equation.

On my blog, I feature puppets I've just made, review puppet books and movies, and share puppets from my vintage collection:

If you "Like" my shop here on Etsy (just below the colorful banner up there), you'll get my blog posts announced to you on Facebook. So just do that, alright?

I'm also the founder and Captain of the Puppetsy Team here on Etsy. We've gathered together all the great puppet Shops and fans on Etsy in one place. If I don't have the puppet you're looking for, I'm sure one of my fellow Members does. Feel free to visit, browse, and JOIN! (All puppet lovers are welcome!)

About

Home-made, hand-sewn, one-of-a-kind puppets.

When you buy a puppet from Peter's Puppets, you can rest assured that it's made by a guy with a tattoo of Kermit the Frog at the exact moment he sings "MAGIC" in "The Rainbow Connection" at the beginning of The Muppet Movie.

Peter's Puppets believes that punk is the new prog, and prog is the new punk. Which means that both Gentle Giant and Bad Brains are acceptable music to listen to while making puppets.

Peter's Puppets also believes that there's no need to buy new things when old things are available, so founder Peter Krueger makes it his mission to scour thrift stores and garage sales for puppet-making supplies: vintage fabric, creepy doll faces, old ribbon, weird doll eyes and noses, and whatever other crafty treasures are dangerously near residing in a landfill. RE-PURPOSE is the chain in the recycling system that Peter's Puppets seeks to fulfill.

One last note from Peter: "hand-sewn" means just that! These puppets never see a sewing machine at all. Making puppets is what I do when I don't feel like reading and I'm sitting in my chair, watching Twins games or my wife's favorite shows. It probably takes a little longer, but it assures that each puppet truly receives my full attention. If you want to know which puppet of mine is my favorite, it's ALWAYS the one I'm working on.

    Enjoying a lifelong love of puppets, especially the Muppets and Mister Rogers' Neighborhood, Peter began making them in earnest in 2011. He soon dusted off the Etsy Shop he created and forgot about, and dubbed it "Peter's Puppets."

I ship through USPS, and provide you with a tracking number.

For international shipping, I ship the most economical way through USPS, which is usually First Class. If you require anything more than that, let me know and we will re-calculate the shipping. I cannot be responsible for any customs or taxes that your country charges you upon receipt.
Refunds and Exchanges
If for some reason you are not satisfied with your item or it is damaged when you receive it, please contact me. I will be happy to work with you in resolving the situation. Unfortunately, in most cases, I will not be able to re-make the puppet if it has been damaged, since I often use vintage or hard-to-come-by materials.
