Meet the Gang cos the boys are here....

So how many of you sang 'here to entertain you' when you read the title, or am I showing my age?

The boys in question are a couple of new puppets. Neither of the boys have names yet, so if you would like to leave a comment with suggestions for names I am sure they would be very happy to choose one.

Unfortunately the colours don't come out very well on the iPad, the second pictures are slightly better.  I will need to get some better ones with the camera. But for now here goes.

First up is a slightly demented frog type puppet.  He's bright green with a fetching snow-leopard colouring at the back of his eyes.

(Doubled over with laughter here)


Next there is a rainbow coloured, long furred, very friendly alien. He likes to shimmy and shake because it makes his fur flutter.


So what names come to mind?

And finally......... This puppet's name was easy and popped right out when her eyes went on.  Yes I am pleased to introduce:  Slocombe


She reminded me so much of Mrs Slocombe from Are You Being Served? (Definitely showing my age)

So what do you think?
I'm popping over to Handmade Harbour, why not come with me and see what other crafty talents are on show.

    1. The rainbow ones are lovely when the fur moves. I have two armless ones that act as our backing singers when we to a church service. They love to dance!

  6. Your puppets are awesome! The frog looks really cheeky and I love the rainbow coloured one's fur. I think the frog should be called Fergus :)
