We remember playing with puppets. Just like fisting, only with more production value.
But our puppets were so primitive. Lamb Chop looked like something out of Avatar by comparison. Still, we had fun creating our own universe where we were completely in control, and boy puppets could kiss boy puppets without judgment. (Except for that damn bigoted marionette, Howdy Doody.)
So, that’s why we’re writing today about the soon-to-be-released Puppet Heap Playthings. Not because we’re nostalgic for our six-seat bedroom theater (which frequently sold out, thankyouverymuch), but because these are really incredible works of art. Whether you decide to ever put your hands up their butts is entirely up to you.
Puppet Heap is a New Jersey studio filled with incredible talent that produces some of the most sophisticated puppet characters for film, television and theater. This is their first foray into puppets for consumers and their imaginative first line represents characters from the Puppet Heap Moving Picture Company’s short films, Mother Hubbard Among Others and I Knew an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly.
We just think they’re cool. And maybe, just maybe, there’s an old lady about to make an appearance in a little bedroom fantasy tonight. Though we can’t confirm exactly what she’ll be swallowing.
