Folkmanis Puppets – Inspire Creativity

The Folkmanis Puppets Story…

Since 1976, Folkmanis Puppets have delighted the imagination of children with their incredible range of speciality puppets. The creation of the puppets was an expression of founder, Judy Folkmanis’s active imagination, sewing wizardry and love of nature when she first created animal puppets to entertain her own children. Folkmanis Puppets was born when Judy’s cuddly creations began attracting demand from other parents who sought a high-play value from their toy purchases and wanted to encourage engagement and appreciation of the natural world for their children.

Although still a family business, with Judy and her husband Atis overseeing the creative and operations side of the business, Folkmanis puppets now offers over 200 of the most heartwarming and realistically designed creatures -both exotic and familiar- on the market today. After more than 48 years, Folkmanis Puppets ensures that the quality and love of the natural world that they wish to convey through their toys remains true to their original vision.

Folkmanis Puppets are widely regarded as the most innovative puppet maker in the work, designing beautifully crafted toys that:

  • inspire creativity
  • promote hands-on discovery
  • encourage interaction
  • teach fine and gross motor skills
  • help develop early language

And will be sure to be a treasured companion in your family for many years to come!
