Each puppet begins as an idea. Our designers create concept sketches for new characters, then refine those sketches into a final design.
Our expert puppet builder and toy designer then take the approved character design and begins building prototypes. Our designers usually go through 2-4 prototypes before the final design is approved. Key elements our designers focus on when developing prototypes are: Functionality,Looks & Safety.
Once the final prototype is approved our overseas manufacturing team begins fabricating each puppet by hand. Our puppets are not built by machines but rather expertly trained craftspeople.
Safety is a top priority at Puppet Pals. After manufacturing is completed, random puppet samples are sent to a safety testing lab to undergo CPSC testing to meet safety guidelines.
Once testing our 3rd party testing lab has approved the batch of puppets, they are then shipped out to our US warehouse, and then delivered to you!
