About Helen's Handpuppets


Helen in creative mode



Rod playing with his big machines


Helens Hand puppets is an Australian owned and operated business that designs, manufactures and distributes hand puppets , puppet theatres, & a range of CREATIVE PLAY  Toys. 

Puppet making began as a hobby for Helen while a full time carer for Rod. When Rods health improved he decided that you cant have puppets without a puppet theatre. He found that they were much more fun to build than houses (and quicker too!) Thus the business was born.

We supply Families, Playgroups, Child Care Centres, Kinders, Schools,Universities, Speach Therapists all over Australia & overseas and we also sell at Craft Markets.
