about this paper puppet

papertalker hingeEach puppet displayed here uses a hinge we call the 'paper talker.' The paper talker is the basic building block of the Puppetools 'Play Language.' Each puppet may be viewed as a 'part of speech' in an evolving language of handheld symbols and ideas. Note that Paper Flyer" models such as the Bat, Butterfly, and Bird do not use the hinge.
