As much as we all like to keep our puppets working, there are times when one needs to be stored for some period of time.
Remember, Puppets are People too. Just like you, your soft sculpture puppet needs air flow around him. DO NOT store your puppet in a plastic bag for extended periods of time. The foam in a soft sculpture puppet will break down more quickly when it has no available air. We recommend covering your puppet with something like a pillow case. Also, just like you, your puppet does not want to be left out in bright sunlight for extended periods of time. By storing him/her in a pillow case that is kept in a dark, cool environment you will extend his/her lifespan by many years.
