The Larrikin Puppets environmental sustainability puppet show is ideal for children in childcare centres, kindergartens, and early primary school classes (Prep, Grades 1 and 2). The show teaches children about environmental sustainability and what we can all do to look after this planet of ours. The show is colourful and fun, filled with singing, dancing, games and fun starring such loveable puppet characters as Troggg, Marina, Scrambles, Freerange the Chicken, Frizzby, Moss, Flossy and Frazzamatazz.
Our puppets talk about turning off lights when they’re not in use, putting recycling in the recycling bin, and keeping our bushlands and oceans free of rubbish. Everybody can do their bit to help look after the environment.
