Our animatronic Badgers were originally created for a TOYOTA COROLLA commercial. Since then, our Badger puppets have proven to be very versatile, dancing, operating a laptop computer, and even playing tennis doubles. We added a breathe mechanism to the reclining Mama Badger puppet, to give her that extra lifelike touch.
We created two Badgers- a reclining mother complete with nursing baby Bagers, and an upright Badger. For animals with complex fur patterns like Badgers, we used the fur from real Badger pelts. We shaved the fur away from their leathery backing and transferred them to the supple foam latex skins of these puppets. The baby badgers were all electrostatically flocked with artificial hair.
