Welcome to The Puppet Company's virtual stand! We are now the largest supplier of puppets in Europe and our puppets are used around the globe. There is something magical about owning and using our puppets and soft toys, they capture the essence of what makes a really fine toy as they allow the user to be creative, to entertain and more than anything else - to have fun! 

We also create beautiful soft toys through our sister company Wilberry Toys which complements our puppet collections and can be purchased as a combined puppet & soft toy order:

Our virtual showcase provides an overview of many of our puppets and soft toys, we also have a socially distanced showroom in our office headquarters and would be happy to take you through the ranges at your convenience. Our team in the office and our agents across the UK and Europe are happy to assist with any queries, orders or talking you through the ranges.

Please feel free to get in touch: +44(0)1462 446040

We know these are extrodinary times and are doing everything we can to support our customers at this time, including reducing carriage paid orders, discounting our POS and adding new clearance items.

  • Sustainability Role in overall company's strategic plans
    Sustainability plays a very important role in our overall strategic plan and is an area that we look to improve upon each year. We take our commitment to ESG (Environment, Social, Governance) and CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) very seriously
    Sustainability initiatives
    For many of our product ranges the SIL, hangtag, display box and master carton tare made from recycled materials and they are recyclable. Where possible recycled stuffing is used, in many cases from recycled plastic bottles. Poly bags are recyclable, we are looking at having these made from recycled materials and / or biodegradable in the future, and where permissible we have already cut out the use of poly bags and and hang tags completely. We combine orders to limit our shipping and take containers by boat as oppossed to air freight to limit our carbon footprint. All materials in the warehouse are re-used and recycled, as an example we ship out orders using the boxes the goods arrive in from the manufacturers where possible so these are re-used. We also have recycling procedures and points in place across the warehouse and offices for all employees. As part of our standard working practises we limit our use of printing paper, water and electricity as much as possible and place a big emphasis on being environmentally friendly.
    Pledges for the year
    We are launching a new range of Eco-puppets made for recycled materials which we are really excited about. We are also continuing working with our manufacturers on making our packing, labeling and shipping as environmentally friendly and sustainable as possible. We are looking at implementing changes to our packaging and further improving our recycling levels and reducing packaging across the board.
    Social equity at your company
    Our workers health and safety is of the utmost importance to us and we take our commitment to our staff very seriously. We have worked hard to create a working environment and culture conducive to the needs of our employees, paying above market wages and benefits and believe in attracting and nurturing the best possible candidates, and supporting them as much as possible. We therefore have a very low staff turnover rate and many of our employees have been with us for over 10 - 15 years.
