Animal Kit

Watch out for puppets from kits made to look like real Pelham Puppets such as "Wags" the dog and "Winkle" the cat. One distinction is the controller is usually different. The one included in the kit was made from a round dowel rod.

Notice the image of the grey and white dog. This puppet was made from a kit to look like a Pelham Puppe'ts "Caesar" and incorrectly identified by David Leech on page 39 of his book Collecting Pelham Puppets. The puppet was never made to deceive anyone intentionally, but it shows how a simple mistake in identifying a puppet and publishing it like in a book or on web site can change a kit puppet or "fake" into a real Pelham creation.
