About

Concept

What happens to hand puppets when they are not being played with? Do they feel empty inside? According to Wikipedia, “A puppet that remains still has a dull, lifeless appearance and is said to be dead.”—which is all the more upsetting!

If you share the same concern, please help us to fulfill our mission of giving puppets everywhere a set of plush organs that will “breathe life” to these lovable toys even when they are not in use.


人間に遊ばれていないとき、パペットたちは、死んだも同然の”空っぽ”状態。そんな可哀想なパペットたちに、かわいいGuts(内臓)を詰め込んで、「命を吹き込んで」みませんか?  

Handmade with love in the USA! These cute plushies come in two colors. Due to the handmade nature of Puppet Guts, our product may feature slight imperfections and inconsistencies. 

Puppet Gutsには、マルチカラーとホワイトの2種類があります。ニューヨークで愛を込めて全て手作りされているため、1つ1つ少しずつ違う表情をしており、全く同じ顔は1つもありません。世界に一つだけのあなたの大切なパペットに、世界に一つだけの内臓をいかがでしょうか。 

Surprise your friends (and puppets) with this cute and quirky gift!

可愛くて風変わりな贈り物で、あなたの友達を驚かせましょう!  


Puppet Guts Details 

*Puppet not included. (Puppet Guts are absolutely adorable just the way they are!) / Puppet Gutsを入れるためのパペットは含まれておりません。(パペットなしの裸のままでも結構かわいいです。)

Please refer to the measurements above before placing an order. Puppet Guts are made of soft plush materials, so it will fit into most hand puppets if you squeeze or fold it in. As we cannot guarantee that it will fit into smaller puppets, please test out your Puppet Guts on a puppet of your choice at the store. 

Puppet Gutsはぬいぐるみなので、ある程度のサイズのパペットになら押し込んで入れることが可能です。しかしあまりにも小さいパペットには入らない可能性があります。ご注文の前に、お手持ちのパペットに入りそうかどうかサイズをご確認ください。パペットは、Puppet Gutsがお手元に届いた後、実際に入る大きさかどうかを店頭でお確かめの上、お選びいただくことをお勧めします。



The Plan

We plan to use the funding for the essentials: manufacturing, promotion, and operational costs such as packing, delivery, inventory management, etc. Which is why we need your support in bringing this dream to life!

皆さまに頂いたサポートは、製造、販売促進、配送、在庫管理などの運営費などに充当させていただきます。Puppet Gutsを皆さまへお届けするために、ぜひ支援のほどよろしくお願い致します! 

Risks and challenges

Like most Kickstarter projects, our first concern with Puppet Guts is publicity—gaining enough attention to make this campaign a success. We are developing a strategy based on organic PR outreach and free coverage, so anything you could do to help us spread the word would be greatly appreciated!

The second challenge is production schedule. Puppet Guts are handmade by artisans in New York and takes several weeks to produce. As they are made to order, we will inform you if your item is going to take longer than expected. However, with enough funding, we plan to secure a larger manufacturing line that will speed up turnaround.

本プロジェクトの成功のためには、まずより多くの方々にPuppet Gutsを知ってもらう必要があります。そのためには、より多くの人々にプロジェクトを拡散していただく必要がありますので、ぜひご協力お願いいたします!

また、Puppet Gutsはニューヨークの職人の手によって1つ1つ手作りされているため、制作に数週間ほど時間を要します。そのため、当初の予定よりもお届けに時間が掛かってしまう可能性がございます。その場合は支援者の皆様へ即座にご連絡を致しますので、予めご了承いただけますと幸いです。

ただ、今後多くのご支援があれば、より大きな製造ラインを利用することも可能となります。支援額に関係なく、頂いたご支援は私たちがこのプロジェクトを実現するための心の支えになりますので、ぜひ私たちに愛の手と内臓を!!!
