Folkmanis® – Puppet Care

You can maintain your puppets’ appearance by brushing whenever they need a touch up. Animals with long plush also enjoy a nice fluffing once in awhile.

  • For long fluffy plush

  • we recommend a vigorous shake-out to freshen your puppet up if it gets flattened or crushed.
  • Our plush puppets are surface-washable only.
  • Do not submerge the puppet in water
  • For spot cleaning, use lukewarm water and sponge or other mild liquid detergent to wet and lather fur.
  • Be careful not to wring or twist the puppet, or you may end up with lumpy stuffing.
  • Dry by gently squeezing between towels, or hanging from clothesline to drip-dry.
  • After it’s dry, shake it out.
  • Short plush

  • can get grooming with a wire or coarse-bristled brush, like a pet grooming brush.
  • By brushing with – rather than against – the fabric grain, you’ll quickly restore the quality and realism of the animal’s fur.
  •  BUT NOTE THIS WARNING: a strong brush is no friend to the eyes and ears of an animal. Both can be scratched and damaged if care is not taken to avoid these sensitive areas
  • Velour puppets (ladybug, dragon, pig, etc.)

  • please wash with a sponge
  • mild detergent and lukewarm water, please do not overly soak.
  • The smaller velours puppets that are used like a glove

  • can be immersed in lukewarm water for cleaning.
  • should not be wrung and twisted.
  • are dried by gently squeezing between towels,
  • or let it drain on the clothesline (avoid direct sunlight).
  •   We do not recommend to blow dry the dolls



The only food your hand puppet needs is lots of love and cuddly fun!
