When looking at my puppets, a lot of fellow builders ask me where I get my puppet eyes, so I decided to offer them for sale. If you're looking for the perfect eye for your puppets, look no further. No seriously, these are amazing. I cannot recommend these balls highly enough for professional or amateur puppet builders alike. These eva foam balls are 40mm & will accept adhesives extremely well. They're better than ping-pong balls because they won't get crushed, and you can easily slice them to your preferred shape/size with a utility knife.
Roughly 1.57" (40mm). Seriously, they're the most amazing eyeball out there. I won't turn back to ping pong balls--ever. EVER EVER EVER!
These whole, white, foam balls come in packs of 1, 2, 6, 12, or 15. This is the same material you'd find in practice golf balls, but white. WHITE! Cut it in half, add your favorite pupils you've got yourself one fantastic, pair of eyes.
According to a puppet-building customer, "Just in case any puppet makers are wondering -- these foam balls ARE black-light reactive." Hooray! Thank you, Pat!
Did you discover something amazing to do with them & you want to share with the world? (or with the part of the world who happens to read this...) Let me know the cool stuff you're doing with them & I'll try to include it in a listing!
See the "Puppet Eyes and Supplies" section of this shop for different sizes and quantities.
Caution: Choking Hazard. Seriously, babies will die. Don't be a baby-killer. Use these on puppets and toys and projects intended for ages 13 and above.
