My German people puppets from Karl-Heinz Bilz

 

 

Tiny but so sweet are the little people coming from the workshop of Karl-Heinz Bilz in Germany. They are very easy to play with, very responsive to your pushes! I love these little puppets. These are my people from his shop. Look at my puppet maker page for information about Herr Bilz and a link to his web site.

This series was started especially for me! A good kite friend in Germany requested Herr Bilz create a push puppet of a kite flier. This was Holm's gift to Bob and I on a visit to our home. Other visits produced the others. Thank you, Holm and Herr Bilz! Bob and Charmayne
