All About Pubbets

Hello, I'm James! I'm the Papa of Pubbets and started this business in 2018 after a successful Indiegogo campaign to manufacture my first puppet design, imaginatively named Pubbet 1. 

Since then I've designed and sold three more Pubbet characters, along with many custom one-off puppet characters. 

Why 'Pubbets'?

My childhood nickname Pubba and I chose the name 'Pubbets' because it's based on that nickname plus the word puppets. 

It's also reminiscent of the word 'Muppets' - which have been a huge inspiration for me for as long as I can remember.

A Brief History of Pubbets

Pubbet #1 was our first character. He was based on a puppet design that had been rattling around in my head since primary school! 50 were made and sent to backers around the world in early 2019. 

Pubbet 2 (Sam) and 3 (Ellie May) were released in December 2019.

The response to these characters was mostly positive, but I was unhappy with the quality of the finished puppets. This led me on a mission to create Pubbet #4.

I had so many requests for a girl character puppet, so decided to make two! Pubbet 5 (Rosey) and 6 (Josie) had a new detachable leg design. They are both currently available for sale on our site at pubbets.net

Sales of our two girl Pubbets were good, but many customers wanted a new boy character after Marvin sold out in October. I decided to recreate my first and favourite Pubbet #1 character, now named Jasper.

I started designing our Pubbet Minis soon after Pubbet #4 was finished. We used a new factory for these products but the first QC check failed, so we ended up using our main factory instead.

Furry monster puppets have been the most common request since starting Pubbets in 2018. After a lot of trial and error, we were able to create two furry monster Pubbets. They have a new rotating eye design and have been very popular with customers!
