Q: How does it
A: Operating your President puppet is actually quite simple! The
mouth is completely moveable as are the arms and hands. Insert your
hand through the slot in the puppet's back to operate the mouth. If
you are right handed, we recommend using your left hand to operate
the mouth and your right hand to operate the arm rod. (If you are
left handed, simply switch the rod to the puppet's left hand and
reverse the instructions above.) To activate the sound box, simply
press the button located on the top of the mouth board. You are now
ready to perform your very own presidential speech! By the way,
instructions are included on the tag of every puppet.
Q: What’s an arm rod?
A: The arm rod is the thin metal pole that comes with your puppet.
It can be clipped onto either of the puppet’s hands to provide
movement. You can wave, salute, blow kisses, fix his hair, etc.
Additional arm rods can be purchased separately if you lose it or
want to operate both hands at the same time.
Q: Can adult/child hands fit the puppets?
A: Yes, both adult and child hands can easily manipulate the puppet.
The inner "pillow" lining helps to ensure snug and secure
positioning of any size hand.
Q: What are the puppets made out of?
A: All of our puppets are made of soft polyester fibers. The head is
constructed of fabric covered foam. The hair is sewn into place.
Each mouth is fitted with a flexible plastic stiffener to ensure
long lasting durability. The eyes are securely fastened to the
puppet’s head as per toy industry regulations. Our puppets are made
to last a lifetime.
Q: Do you sell other outfits/ are the
A: We are in the process of designing different outfits that can be
purchased separately to redress your puppet. In the mean time, all
of the clothing on our puppets is completely removable. They can be
dressed in a child’s size 2T. The shirt and jacket are “tack-sewn”
into place with three stitches around the neck- simply snip these
tiny stitches to remove the clothes. The pants are attached with
Q: How many President puppets are currently
A: Right now only President George W. Bush puppet is available. We
plan to “puppetize” additional Presidents in the near future. If you
would like to tell us which President you would like to see be made
into a puppet please send us an email at
Q: Why a puppet? / How did you come up with
A: We noticed that while there were a lot of political dolls on the
market, most of them were made of plastic and were simply boring-
they would just sit on the shelf as a “decoration”. Being puppet
lovers ourselves, we wanted to design a puppet that would appeal to
a large market- we thought President Bush was a great place to
start. Furthermore, everybody seems to love puppets! They are
extremely visual and interactive. An endless amount of fun can be
had manipulating the puppet- your imagination is your only limit.
Making it additionally fun and unique is the sound box that features
25 different sound clips pulled from actual speeches and interviews.
The clips include a mix of President Bush’s more patriotic phrases
about America and the war on terrorism, as well as fun “Bushisms”.
Q: Can the batteries be replaced?
A: Yes. Although they are designed to last a long time, they can
easily be changed. Simply separate the Velcro lining in the puppet’s
stomach to access the sound box. Three button type batteries are
used and can commonly be found in most electronic stores...
Q: How do I clean the puppet?
A: We recommend surface cleaning only. Use a damp cloth and blot the
area that has become dirty with cool water. If water alone does not
remove the stain, add a dab of liquid laundry soap. Be sure to rinse
the soap out and dry thoroughly to avoid any discoloration.
Q: Do you sell wholesale?
A: Yes, to resale businesses only. Please email us your name and
phone number along with a brief note as to where you are interested
in selling our puppets. Send your request to
A representative from our company will be in contact with you
Q: Do you make custom designs? / Can you
make a puppet of my Uncle Bob?
A: Unfortunately we are not taking on custom design orders for
single puppets at this time. If you are looking for different types
and styles of puppets check out our sister site at
Q: Which political party do you endorse?
A: Neither. We hope our puppets help promote democracy and get
people interested in our government and how it works. If it takes a
puppet to get people involved so be it. There’s nothing wrong with
having a little fun, too!
