The birth of Pepino Puppets

The idea of Pepino Puppets was born many years ago, whilst living in a flat in London with our son, Josef. Like many little boys, Josef was desperate for his own pet dog but sadly, we didn’t have the space. A toy pup would have to suffice for the time being.  After failing to find a suitable companion out of all the soft dog toys on the high street and online, we decided to create our own. And following careful thought and experimentation, we created our first puppet- Pepino the sausage dog, which is now our most popular selling puppet to date. We have since gone on to expand our puppet family to include cows, unicorns, sheep and penguins. We have sold more than 500 puppets so far within 2 years of trading. 

 

What makes Pepino Puppets so special

Our puppets are completely handmade from the wooden feet to the hand-stitched detailing. When we apply the final finish to the face, the puppet comes to life with it’s own unique personality. We take time to select high quality cotton or velvet for the body, thick wool for the hair, manes and tails and wood for the hooves and paws. The puppets hang from a hand cut wooden bar which allows them to be played with like a traditional marionette puppet, but this can easily detached by unlooping the short cords from the buttons on the body. This makes the puppets multi-functional and ideal for play as a soft toy or a puppet.  They are suitable for children from three years old to one hundred. The puppets each have their own name and are delivered with a short story to help inspire your child’s imaginative play.

OUR LITTLE STORY

 

We’re becoming increasingly aware of the impact single use plastics has on our planet, therefore we feel proud that we’re creating a product that supports the increasing consumer trend towards buying small and local and plastic free! We pride ourselves on creating toys that show awareness for the environment by using mainly natural materials and partly recycled components.
