Velveteen Rabbit, Grown-up

Kathryn Tkel

Welcome to The Velveteen Rabbit (Or How Toys Become Real)!

We’re excited you’ve decided to listen. If you are a grown up helping out a budding puppeteer, please click the buttons below to access all of the materials you’ll need to get started!

Playing at home? These are the materials you'll need.

Looking for a black-&-white printer-friendly version of the guide booklet? Find it here. (Designed to be printed double-sided, but works single-sided too!)

Learn About Puppeteering

Watch the videos below to learn about the art of puppetry with Jesse Mooney-Bullock of MoonBull Studio. In video one, join Jesse in building a 3-D puppet that you can use in your own Velveteen Rabbit puppet show. In video two, explore how to puppeteer your new puppet. In the third video, hear Jesse's story and advice for young puppeteers!

Making Your Puppets? Get Inspired!

Check out fully-rendered images of the puppets in the Velveteen Rabbit, by the project's illustrator, Nytaya Babbitt! Her drawings can help you get going if you're feeling stuck (plus, they're just really cool to look at!)

This project is made possible in part by generous funding from ArtsWave
