The Puppet Company Brings a Truly Iconic Character to Life in the Brands First-ever Licensing Deal.

The Puppet Company, the family run world leader in gifts and toys, is thrilled to present its first ever collection of licensed puppets, as the brand introduces Elmer the Patchwork Elephant. Bringing the truly iconic and adored Elmer character to life in a collection of two wonderfully colourful puppets!

Elmer remains one of the most iconic and widely read children’s books of all time, written and illustrated by the late, great David McKee, it has sold over 10 million copies worldwide since it was first published by Andersen Press in 1989. The colourful elephant who champions individuality, creativity, and joy, is about to bring even more fun and enjoyment thanks to The Puppet Company’s first ever licensing deal, which sees the arrival of their new Elmer Puppets.

With the friendliest face, the My First Elmer Puppet will inspire imaginary play like no other. With Elmers trademark rainbow patchwork colours, he has huge ears to accompany his larger-than-life character. This glove style puppet is easy to use for adults to entertain their children during playtime or to accompany a bedtime story, but rather wonderfully is just as easy for little ones to play with! Suitable from birth, each puppet is made from the softest materials and with the cutest embroidered detail, all tested to the highest possible safety standards.

A beautiful stand-alone Elmer Finger Puppet completes the set.  Offering a huge amount of versatility, the adorable puppet is a miniature version that is perfect for tiny hands, as well as being great fun to take on adventures to ensure a touch of Elmer’s magic is with families wherever they are!

As always with The Puppet Company, every puppet is bursting with a magical quality, allowing users to embrace creativity, entertainment, and fun wherever they may be. Also encouraging speech and language development in young children alongside fine-motor skills, the puppets will help children embrace the wonder of the world we live in.

Director and Co-Founder Sue Lockey says, “We are delighted to have brought the most-loved Elmer character to life and to continue sharing the magic and power of puppets. As an ex-teacher I know first-hand the importance of sharing stories such as Elmer’s and celebrating each child’s individual character and differences. We are a family business and I have fond memories of reading all four of my children the Elmer books when they were growing up, and now sharing the books and puppets with my grandchildren is a real delight. We hope to continue inspiring future generations by bringing this most wonderful character to life.”
