The characters were based loosely on The Little Prince story and were to see their world from the perspective of a small child in an alien landscape.
The figure was 90cm (approx height of 3-4yr old) and made from plywood profile shapes skinned with a distinct patterned aluminium mesh.
Parallel poles inserted into the back led approx: 200cm to a counterweighted metal hoop worn over the shoulder by the central puppeteer. This allowed the puppet to bend forwards & back. This puppeteer also had controls to move the head up-down, side to side and blink eyelid.
