At this time we do not have a resellers program. All puppets should be purchased for your own personal use or gift for someone. Please do not resell our puppets as new.

What if I assembled my Stringbean incorrectly?
Oops. All is not lost. We can supply you with replacement parts or we can repair the item. If you choose to return it we will repair it for FREE, but you will need to pay for all shipping cost.
Do arm rods come with the puppets?
If arm rods are included with a puppet, the item description will say so. Arm rods may be purchased separately for the other puppets.
How do you attach your arm rods?
Our arm rods are attached to puppet arms with rubber bands. Do not simply loop the rubber band over the puppet's wrist, or you will have very little control. The arm rod will arrive with one end of the rubber band attached, leaving a loop (Figure A). Pull the loop into a circle which is bisected by the rod (Figure B). Pull each side of the loop past the rod and bring them together on the back side of the rod, forming a double strand "C" shape with each end attached to the rod (Figure C). Put the puppet wrist between the "C" and the rod and adjust the rubber band for a tight hold (Figure D). Attach the rod to the inside of the puppet's wrist.
Can I request fabric samples?
Yes, in most cases you samples are available for the fabrics we carry in stock. Custom dyed fabric may be limited in quantity. Samples are sent free of charge within the USA. Please contact us for shipping cost for international customers.
