Description

General information about our animals

All our Puppets and toys are hand made from materials made in an environmentally sustainable.
All runoff from dyes used is contained and disposed of in an ecologically safe way.   All materials are fire-resistant and have been tested under a flame.

All patterns are drawn by hand first and then shaped into the three-dimensional shape that is meticulously worked with by producing many samples until the spirit of the animal is revealed and comes to life when it is used. (by the puppeteer!)
We deliberately use old methods of cutting the material by a small hand machine then sewn by hand and on machines both in Nanjing and In Melbourne.
This is achieved by a small group of women.

( see our History to see the development of Secret Gully puppets and Endangered Animals Australia)

 

CARE INSTRUCTIONS      

 Whilst we are not perfect yet…

All our animals can be cared for with ease to break the cycle of buy and throw-away world of consumerism

We believe that children can and must learn to take care of their material world.

Learning to care for our animals will encourage them to take care of their surroundings at home and in the wider world.

All our animals can be:

  • Washed by hand or gentle machine wash…( in cold water only)
  • Successfully Brushed and combed to bring them back to life…
  • Repaired with a simple needle and cotton.
