They don't bite...much.

Hey! It's a little posse of finger puppets. I know they look kind of tough, like they'd be bullies and stuff, but it is all an act. Underneath those sneering exteriors beat wee little hearts of gold.
I realize it may look like all I make is rabbit finger puppets, but this would be untrue. Look at the top row... a bear! Heh heh. No, I was just low on rabbits. I will make others too, more bears, horses, cats, ducks, sheep, leopards; all sorts. Sometime I would like to make small portable finger puppet theatres with backdrops, curtains and all. Could be good...

Keep warm in this windy weather,

Look out! He's gonna take off!!!

Hey! Just so's you know, this unusual creature is a rabbit. He makes me think of a helicopter, with his crazy ears about to whirl around and lift him gently into the air. He's friendly though, don't worry. His name is Leon and he is quite soft. His outfit is some kind of thin velvety print fabric, and he has wee red pompoms and hot pink sequins around his neck. Who wouldn't want an outfit just like it? Maybe that will be the next direction in which Kirkham Puppets will go. Matching outfits for owner and puppet. This idea may be a while coming to fruition, so don't hold your breath.
Stay warm,
