Which Puppet Are You?

We all like things that make us smile...

...and for me it is the Fandango puppets.

On Monday, my husband and I went to the movies and left the kids with Grandma.  Of course there was a Fandango commercial at the beginning of the movie. And I smiled...

...and the wheels started to turn.

 This would be a fun summer project.  Not only for the kids, but us adults could join in on the fun.

Facts about the puppets:
  • There are 150 puppets
  • The Creative Director behind these puppets is also the man responsible for the Coca-Cola Bears.
  • The artist who creates the puppets has also worked for the Jim Henson Co.
  • The puppets are crafted using hundreds of objects and each has an interior system that allows for the more realistic movements.
  • The commercials are actually shot on location around Los Angeles.

You can even create your own bag puppet online at Fandango.

What would your puppet look like?


Now grab a small paper bag and odds and ends around the house and get your craft on!   Don't forget to grab your kids to join in on the fun.

Do you know I have NEVER heard of these? This looks like fun though, since I want to "introduce" my daughter to the internet and how to be safe on it, and this is something she could do! Thanks for the lead!!

Really?!?! They always have commercials for Fandango in the theater when we go to see movies. I think they used to be on tv to. They always make me laugh because they look so funny.

oh my gosh I have never heard of these either! My puppet would definitely be sassy with punky hair and wearing pink!
