Hand Puppet Shows
Usually hand puppets are made of foam based material covered with cotton brush cloth as the skin of puppet character. The main movement of the puppet is the mouth. Hand puppets are constructed with bigger mouth so when it talks, it can be understood even in far distance. There are other parts of the face that can be controlled and manipulated like the ears, eyes, nose and eyebrows.
Hand puppet size is measured approximately from 6 inches to 24 inches high. This includes the half body and head. It is always the mouth design is made first before any other parts of the puppet. The character design will evolve in the figure of the mouth.
Roppets Edutainment Production Inc. have available puppet kits for sale. This is used during seminar and workshops. The kits includes dismantled body and head parts. In the workshop, the puppet maker demonstrate how to assemble the parts to come up with an original puppet character.
Compared to other forms of puppetry, the hand puppets are more enjoyed by kids to watch. Aside from its cartoonic design, it has various colors that make it really attractive and fun to look at. It talks directly from the mouth.
The hand puppet can be manipulated by one, two or three puppeteers depending on the character and structure it was made. For example, a magician character. One puppeteer will control the mouth using his right hand. Another puppeteer will perform the two hands in presenting the magic tricks.
The hand puppet when manipulated by one puppeteer, can control the two hands aside from the mouth movement by using the two rods connected under the palm of the character. Moving it upward and Downward will show a real action of the hands.
Hand puppets are better if performed by a group of puppeteers. Aside from its interaction with the audience, puppet can talk to each other. A backdrop can be made depending on the scene of the story. Props are made of cartons, foam and other light materials. Roppets also used wigs for the hair of puppets. Sometimes yarn or foam. Truly, its a lot of fun doing hand puppet show.
