Support Yompers: A New Puppet TV Pilot & Live Show by Larrikin Puppets

Support Yompers - Larrikin Puppets TV Series Crowdfunder

What is Yompers?

Set in a magical, multi-species community of animals, plants and humans, Yompers are a group of four friends, each one being a vulnerable animal of the world. They work, play and perform together. 

Each donning a colourful backpack, Yompers yomp along gleefully while carrying a heavy load: one a portable café; one a set of musical instruments; one a pair of shoes for others to walk in; and one a big sack of fun facts.

Their calling is to impart wisdom to some of the youngest humans on earth in a super fun way, supporting them to understand important and exciting ideas in the areas of HASS (Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences).

Yompers will be a TV series and a live puppet show. Show your support HERE to help make that happen!

Yompers is being created to engage, educate and entertain children aged 7 and under. It will also act as a worthwhile and welcome resource to support educators, parents and carers with high quality early years and early primary education in the area of HASS.

Larrikin Puppets presented a talk at TEDx Brisbane!

Elissa and Troggg presented a talk at the highly acclaimed TEDx Brisbane on 14 October 2023.

The theme for TEDx Brisbane 2023 was ‘The Power of Intention’. What is our intention when it comes to the art of puppetry?

Elissa and Troggg from Larrikin Puppets delivered a TEDx Talk at TEDx Brisbane in October 2023

We are super proud of both the delivery and the content of our TEDx Talk.

A big thanks to Juanita, Rob and everyone at TEDxBrisbane for your support in rehearsing and producing our talk. It was an experience we’ll never forget! See the talk below:
