Shakespeare Punching Puppet

$19.95

In this corner, from Stratford-upon-Avon, weighing in at 10 stone, the Playwright Pugilist, the Battling Bard, William Shakespeare! This 12-1/2" (31.8 cm) punching puppet has two levers inside its breeches that make Shakespeare punch. A perfect gift for a writer or an actor. Be forewarned, if anyone implies that his works were written by Francis Bacon, by his hand he will supplant some of their teeth! Head and punching mechanism are made of plastic, clothing is fabric.
