  • Materials

    • All Folkmanis puppets are carefully crafted by hand using high-quality materials. This includes soft fabrics like plush faux fur or felt for the puppet's body and durable plastics or metals for moving parts such as eyes or mouths.
    • They also use armatures in many of their puppets. Armatures are metal structures that provide support for the puppet's movements. This allows the puppeteer to control the puppet's actions more efficiently and create more realistic movements.

  • Age/Safety

    • Recommended for children 3 years+
    • All Folkmanis puppets meet the safety requirements of European Union EN- 71 Toys (Safety) Regulations and the U.S. ASTM F963 toy safety specifications.

  • Care/Cleaning

    • Folkmanis puppets are surface-washable only.
    • Do not submerge the puppet in water.
    • For spot cleaning, use lukewarm water and a sponge with mild liquid detergent to wet and lather fur. Rinse the surface with a sponge. Be careful not to wring or twist the puppet, or you may end up with lumpy stuffing. Dry by gently squeezing between towels, or hanging from clothesline to drip-dry. After it’s dry, shake it out. For short pile plush, use a brush to fluff the fur. When brushing face, be careful to avoid scratching the eyes or pulling out the threads in ears, nose, or mouth areas.
