Puppets for children  –  Hand made string puppets


Visit the Pelham Puppet SHOP where you will find our exciting range of characters, all hand made and painted by hand and suitable for children five years and over. 

Many people have discovered the timeless quality and immense play value of Pelham Puppets and you too, can discover what enjoyment and fun children can gain from good traditional toys. “Every puppet is different because each one is hand made and hand painted – the ‘trade mark’ of Pelham Puppets”

More information about the 2018 launch of the Bob Pelham World of Puppets Roadshow & Exhibition will follow later this year.

Please note:  Although I do offer a restringing and repair service for vintage Pelham Puppets, I do not buy them nor provide valuations.


If you are looking for original Pelham Puppets made between 1947 and 1987 then we recommend the Vintage Pelham Puppet Shop where you will find a great range of puppets and an excellent service from Imogen the proprietor.
