Steve Axtell and his Puppets Support Swamp Gum Tales!

I am so pleased to be able to announce that the fantastic puppet-maker Steve Axtell loves Swamp Gum Tales!


So much so, that he’s happy for us to share some clips and images of his wonderful puppets here on our site.

If you haven’t yet heard Steve’s catchy “PP Platypus Song”, make sure you check it out on our clip. Steve manages to combine catchy lyrics and a great lesson about the platypus.

Don’t you think Steve’s platypus reminds you of our very own Percy? I think he looks just like him and I wonder if Steve’s platypus knows as much about stranger danger as Percy does!
