We at Dolphin Wizard Company think your world should be a little more fantastical. We think you should get your geek on. We think you should indulge in quirk. And it’s all handmade in Gainesville, FL.
We are north central Florida’s only puppetry and toy company, and in our first few year, we have brought a puppet film festival and multiple live shows to Gainesville, invented puppet team trivia, traveled up and down the East Coast, and made our place at local festivals in Alachua County.
Our company is two-fold: Puppetry Training and Live Shows and Handmade Toys.
Our live shows production company is DolphinWizard Co, and we are currently recruiting and training puppeteers for our cabaret shows around Gainesville and beyond.
We prefer a personal, homegrown approach in which the puppeteers use high-quality puppets made by members of our company. Recycled and repurposed materials compose up to 90 percent of our puppets. We at Dolphin Wizard Company enjoy the very act of puppet construction, and we believe that when the creative process is grounded in resourcefulness and ingenuity, the art of puppetry has a delightfully organic feel.
We design and make plastic and foam toys of dragons, kaiju, prehistoric creatures, and more. We celebrate the forgotten art form of true toys, while paying homage to old-fashioned monster movies and 1980s sci-fi. Our toys are creepy-cute and appropriate for both kids (age 7 and up) and adults!
