Seaside Puppet Show


When I was young, this is one thing that made my holidays to the seaside WAY more exciting! The Punch and Judy puppet show was always a highlight that really makes my childhood holidays stand out in my memory.

This build is loosely based on these shows - and features the iconic red and white stripes and ornate arch above the stage. When the hand crank is turned, one figure repeatedly hits the other over the head with a chicken drumstick, causing him to buckle forwards and almost drop some sausages over the edge.

I had a lot of fun trying to find the perfect mechanism, and enjoyed trying to capture the personality of the show. This build is 203 pieces - hope you enjoy :)
