The Squeaking Tribe

Barnabas Beekeeper of The Oddlings Marionette


Barney is part of the Prairie Folk and as such finds a special affinity with the humble creatures which aid their agriculture, in his case (rather obviously)… bees! It is not unusual to find him adopting a costume inspired by his namesake and joining the regular harvest festivals in the guise of his Apian avatar. Although his insistence to buzz and drone on these occasions is a little harder to tolerate.

Marionette in doll form is approximately 25cm in height or 60cm when strung.

The Land of Odd: A mystical experience in World-building!

Meet the Oddlings, a deliberate tribute to the humble Podlings developed by Brian Froud for “The Dark Crystal”. Normally a grassroots clan dressed generically in the umbers and ochres of the earth, our redeveloped Oddlings embrace a much wider palette of colour and textiles in their costuming and adopt a wide range of vibrant skin tones quite at odds with the earthy hues of their originators. Much of our collected jewellery and specialty off-cuts have found a home here, lending every one its own unique individuality. With just a few moments browsing, you will see the diversity of character distinct in each beautiful marionette and the world-building potential we are only beginning to cultivate.
