The Puppet Company - Glove Puppets & Theatre


The Puppet Company was established in North Hertfordshire UK in 2004 and has built a solid reputation as a leading designer and supplier of high-quality children’s glove puppets and marionettes. The puppets are designed in the UK and manufactured in the Far East under ethical conditions, using soft plush materials. My First Puppets are a great introduction to the wonderful world of hand puppets and are completely safe for newborns and young babies. They can be used initially as interactive toys as a parent operates the puppet to entertain and amuse baby, and as the child grows he/she will learn to operate it for themselves. The selection includes a whole menagerie of animals from a bunny, duck and fox to a tiger, elephant and giraffe. The animal theme is carried across to the brand's long sleeved glove puppets, which are suitable for children aged 1 year and above.

If you are looking for something more exotic, how about a  Bird of Paradise, Scarlet Macaw or African Grey Parrot? These bright, colourful bird puppets are available as full grown and baby versions. We love the quirky Sockettes puppets too.  Sockettes are brightly coloured, stripey, knitted characters with vibrant, fluffy hair, big eyes and accessories to suit their individual personalities. Ringo has bendy antennae and a gold earring, Dylan has a stripey tie and glasses and Ringo has bands of plush orange fur around his body.

Here at Soup Dragon, we are proud to be a retailer of the wooden 3 in 1 Wilberry Wood Puppet Theatre. It looks fantastic in a child’s bedroom and encourages imaginative play as they use their puppets in shows for all the family. The Time For Story range works particularly well with this traditional theatre, with classic characters such as Punch and Judy and an entire family of Royals!
