When puppets attack... for LOVE!

I never told you but when we got back from our last trip out East, there was a wee package waiting for us at home. One of those little boxes that looked like it holding something wonderful. This package did not fail that expectation.

Inside, nestled in some beee-u-tiful confetti tissue paper was a creature - a felt-fleshed critter who begged to be brought to life. This unstrung pinocchio was quickly animated once freed from the confines of the box.

Unnamed creature: Pleased to meet you, I need a name
Unnamed creature: You look delicious
Bumper: So do you!

Unnamed creature: You are delicious!
Bumper: gahhhh!

I have never met a more beautiful puppet. And I'm torn as to what to name this little pup. I'm currently fielding name suggestions from YOU! Please leave us your ideas in the comments.

We really need your help because Gahhhh! is just not a worthy name for this critter.

This unnamed beauty is a creation of Andi from Mystic Spiral Studio and I bid on it during Her Bad Auction. Andi also has beautiful jewellery that I've been drooling over since finding her Etsy site.

Please help us name him (her?).

Seriously folks, how does one tell the sex of a puppet? It's hard to tell even when I've got my hand up it's wahoo.

No puppets or bumpers were harmed in the writing of this post.

He looks like a Mickey to me, on account of the blue eyes. Or, if you determine sex, she might be a Bonnie blue?

ok it looks like a boy to me but I am useless with names

MotherBumper said...

I'm thinking boy also but wasn't sure... I'm mean, how can I be sure?

crazymumma said...

snorfle or snuffle or snuffleupagus. Boy fer shure! But maybe let Bumper decide...

and I MEANT 16 months, not 20 in my comment in your last post.

The alien face attack puppet is likely a Dex or possibly Billy.

Your pup puppet is slightly reminiscent of Jar Jar Binks.

Jezer said...

AWESOME! I'm going to second Billy. Or Bob. And I've always been partial to the name Mortimer/Mort/Morty--it's what we called Al until he was born.

Bloor West Mama said...

My vote is for Morty...he looks like a Morty, if that makes any sense.

Andi said...

I am so glad that this puppet found its way to a happy forever home. It's a little hard to send them out into the world without knowing where they'll go and whether they'll be loved.

My Sprout was so happy to see the pictures of bumper with the puppet. At 2 1/2 she has really been the driving force behind sending these guys out into the world.
