Folkmanis Puppets

Judy Folkmanis knew she was on to an incredible idea when she first used her fantastic knack for sewing to create her very first Folkmanis Puppets. Received with rave reviews-both then and now-Judy's puppets are a reflection of her great love of nature and her uniquely inspired imagination. Judy's endearing puppet designs, both familiar and curious, were first crafted to entertain her own children.

To Judy's great surprise, her puppets quickly attracted a growing audience of  interested customers seeking high-quality toys coupled with high play value and an appreciation of the natural world around us. Folkmanis Puppets has since blossomed into a magnificent menagerie of more than 200 realistic and heartwarming creatures. Today, all operations and creative processes are overseen by Judy and her husband Atis, who uphold the careful attention to detail and quality evident in Judy's original vision and creations.
