The Kid Should See This

A glow-in-the-dark bug puppet by Barnaby Dixon

Watch more with these video collections:

Puppeteer Barnaby Dixon designs puppets that move with a combination of his practiced finger work and the puppet’s internal mechanisms. They can pick things up, scratch their heads, dance, tumble, fly, and more. This newly developed glow-in-the-dark bug puppet is made from a lightweight plastic that, as Dixon explains in the video, is more comfortable for him to wear and makes it easier to create subtle gestures as the bug moves.
