“The puppet show is brilliant. Every child in the country should see it ” Yvonne Pennington

With less than 250 White Winged Flufftails left in the world – this educational puppet show is set to entertain young children across South Africa.  Beautifully hand crafted rod puppets designed by top South African cartoonist Alastair Findlay tell the story of Waxi the waxbill searching for the elusive FLUFFY with help of his bird friends. Set amongst South Africa’s Wetland habitats, the show highlights how threatened habitats are placing enormous pressure on our endangered species. Most importantly, it engages children in ways to participate and understand how they can participate.
