The Puppet Company has teamed up with Save the Children to support its annual Christmas Jumper Day campaign, which has raised over £35 million since 2012.
The family-run puppets and soft toy business has launched a special eco collection of Christmas Jumper Bear & Friends puppets, and will donate £1 from each sold to the international charity’s fundraiser.
Part of the Eco Walking Puppet collection, the puppets are made from 100% recycled plastic bottles. Bear is the central character and Bear’s Friends include a Dog, Cat, Unicorn, Crocodile, Elephant and Lion. Each has a special removable Christmas top (also made from recycled plastic bottles) featuring the Save the Children logo on the back.
To raise further funds, The Puppet Company and its sister company Wilberry Toys has also created a Christmas Collection of puppets and soft toys, and will again donate £1 from each sold. It includes Father Christmas, Snowmen, Reindeers, adorable Dolls, Unicorns, Penguins and more.
This collaboration marks the start of a wider partnership as The Puppet Company looks to discuss further ways it can support the charity through the power of puppets.
