Puppets Undergoing Reconstruction

The manually operated larger-than-life We Have Poipus! Puppets are undergoing some changes in construction.  The mono-filament fishing lines, used to operate the mouths, are being replaced with a mechanism that will not break.  The Puppets will look the same and still operate the same.  The papier-mâché hands are being replaced with softer cloth hands filled with polyester.  The reason for this is to prevent accidental injury while operating the puppets.
