What is it? Pelham Puppets was a British company that was known for creating marionettes from 1947-1986. Before the 1980’s, all their puppets were hand-made. The Peanuts puppets marked the first manufactured puppets. In contrast, the hand-making tradition was continued in this Peanuts display, showcasing the puppets’ movements. So far, I’ve seen four examples of this display and each display is a little different.
Why I bought the Peanuts Pelham Puppet Display
When I was around 15 years old, my Mom bought me a two-foot tall Snoopy Pelham Puppet. It was one of those things I always wanted to find after reading through the Peanuts collector guides. The gift made my Christmas and started my love of Pelham puppets. Furthermore, the other intriguing item in the guides was the Pelham puppet display. What was it? What did it do? I really wanted to know and there was no good way to find out. For that reason, I had no other choice than to save all my pennies for the day I finally found one.
