This fabulous marionette Old Man Joe is incredibly lifelike. It is one of the most detailed marionettes available.
The puppets in this category represent the Czech tradition in puppet making. These are mostly small series cast puppets, which are then hand decorated by sewing and painting.
This old man is a very special marionette indeed. He’s kind, wise, and experienced. Let’s say, he’s been around for a long long time. What makes him even more beautiful is that he’s always been by his soulmate’s side - Old Lady Fanny.
Grandpa Joe puppet stands 18 inches (45 cm) tall and he has a classic skeleton made from wood. A great combination of solid construction, range of movement, and awesome details make Joe a truly expressive and playable marionette. This perfect puppet results from the precise handcraft and large experience of Czech puppeteers. Notice such details as wire-rimmed glasses, an umbrella, or leather shoes. Once you get Joe, you will get him Fanny, a loved wife, soon, because she is also amazing as you can see.
The puppet is made in a classic style and small series. The skeleton is made of wood, the head and hands are cast from non-hazardous and impact-resistant resin, the legs and shoes are hand-carved and cut, and the face is hand-painted. It has a basic range of motion and is easy to use, so even a complete beginner can easily play with it.
Just order the Old Man Joe puppet and he will make you happier in a few days :)) And also browse further on Marionettes.cz and see the other Cartoon puppets. Look at the amazing Michael Jackson, Jack Sparrow, Pinocchio, etc... The selection is really huge ;)
But.....think about Joe as a lifetime friend for you, because he definitely can be like that. And also he can be a perfect gift, for example, for the jubilee of life :)
This puppet was superb quality! It arrived very quickly and safely packaged. It was even better than I had hoped! I will keep an eye on the site to buy another.
Amazing craftmanship! I am so glad to add this to my collection of unique pieces of art! Well-packaged and protected for the overseas journey.
Such a beautiful puppet. The detail is awesome. I do wish it just had a standard airplane controller as compared to the one it shipped with. As it sort of limits what you can do with it. But as far as the puppet, itʼs beautiful.
