Car Fox

Car Fax has a new commercial mascot which is a car Fox puppet. Always nice to spot a puppet in a TV commercial. When the customer asks for a Car Fax, the slippery salesman pulls out the Car Fox puppet instead.

Spoon Monster?

This isn't quite a puppet yet, but I think I can turn it into a rod puppet. I just need to figure out how to fasten a dowel to it, or maybe tuck a wooden spoon inside and crochet around the handle to secure it. Has potential.

Paper Bag Puppets

There sure are a lot of puppets on Flickr. So if you need some inspiration or just want to have some fun, go to http://www.flickr.com and type in puppet or puppetry or finger puppets into their search engine.

Or go to google and click on images and look at all the puppets. Try looking for handpuppet, marionette, fingerpuppet, and so on. Remember paper bag puppets? Those are still good fun for a rainy day. I like old school stuff anyway. I grew up in a family with five kids so we made a lot of paper bag puppets. Our hallway became an impromptu puppet theater and no cardboard box was safe from being turned into a television with puppets dancing inside.
