THEY'RE becoming familiar, and popular, figures at dozens of Huddersfield schools.
And Barbara Dixon and Margaret Redfearn are also getting pretty well-known.
The pair have become very successful in taking their hard-hitting puppet shows into schools, to spread modern morality values.
Now they are busy preparing a DVD starring their brightly-coloured characters, in the hope that their efforts can be recognised much further afield.
And the women behind Hand To Mouth Puppets are also hoping to help the current trend for recycling.
They are working with the organisation recycle4charity to collect old mobile phones and toner cartridges.
They are collecting those for recycling - and getting money towards their own puppet charity from each one.
Hand To Mouth was started 10 years ago with a visit to Bradley Infant School.
Barbara said: "We had done puppet shows at local churches and we were asked by the school if we could go in.
"Now we work in 80 Huddersfield schools, giving shows and workshops for the kids and running lunchtime clubs for kids with difficulties.
"We make all the puppets ourselves and are constantly coming up with new characters.
"We also come up with the scripts and we try to bring morality tales up to date, to make it fun for the youngsters."
Margaret added: "The plays look at all sorts of relevant subjects, such as bullying and self-worth for the young. In every one we try and use a Christian message in a fun form the children enjoy."
The puppeteers, who live in Birkby, hope their recycling efforts will help both their puppet shows and the environment.
People who want to help collect phones and toners can contact them on 01484 547895.
Alternatively, phones and cartridges can be left at Gymophobics in New Street; Laurence Hairdressers in Brooks Yard; or K Pharmacy in Grimscar Avenue.
