One of my favorite memories from childhood was watching a marionette show at a summer picnic. I was so enamored by the show that the kindly elder puppeteers invited me over to their home to show me their collection of puppets. Ever since then I've been fond of puppets and have made many over the years including marionettes.
This charming Pinocchio marionette really works! It is constructed just like traditional marionettes except this one is made of paper. You can pretend to make him walk or dance by moving the controller he hangs from. Any young inspiring puppeteer would love to have this delightful toy.
Now that I have the basic puppet template designed I'm thinking of making more characters. What character would you like to see next?
