Unique, custom, and one of a kind Puppets and Creatures
"I take materials that might otherwise end up in a landfill and turn them into art which inspires people!"
~Kricket Caffery
Puppet builder/artist/contraptioneer, 
and owner of PegStilts.com
See how these puppet creatures were built!
(Click on the puppet creatures name below, in yellow)

This is actually the very first puppet I ever made.

I was inspired to create this puppet because a friend was holding a muppet themed birthday party and I thought:  "I could probably just make a muppet, I'm gonna try!"

This caterpillar is 6.5 feet long, is human-powered (I crawl on my hands and knees), it is black light reactive, and it, like most of my art, is built almost entirely from reclaimed materials.

This was a commissioned puppet project.

This dragon is worn like a backpack.

The head controlled by one hand, the tail is controlled by the other hand.

This tree face was mounted on the tree set at the theater, it is operated from behind, and was used in a play about "Johnny Appleseed".

The eyes on this face can look left/right and can blink, the mouth also opens and closes.

Help Kricket get her Art seen and more Art made!

The large majority of the Art (creatures, puppets, and installations) that I make are made at my own personal expense.

Various times throughout the year I provide FREE (or donation based) entertainment at community events and street fairs;  bringing smiles, playtime, imagination, and inspiration to the masses of all ages, but it costs me money in order to do them, and often donations are no where near the cost of my expenses to be at the event.

Anything you can offer is greatly appreciated, thank you very much for your support and encouragement.
