If you need an introduction – here’s a photo from our T.V. appearance. There’s Dad, Elijah and Crumpet … all meeting Hugh Jackman! Sorry, Dad should be last – see that arm? Well, that’s me. Yes, if you hadn’t realised from Elijah spilling the beans whenever he possibly can, I play Crumpet. My name’s Rob. Nice to ‘meet’ you.
We live in Brisbane, Australia, and our household consists of me, Mum, Elijah, his big brother Thomas, Sapphire our Siamese cat and Mitsy our Ragdoll cat, plus garden wallabies, brush turkeys, possums, carpet pythons, goannas, lizards, water dragons, bandicoots, echidnas and some koalas (but it’s been some time since we had a visit now).
I don’t appear on the show as I’m a puppeteer and they don’t normally show themselves, do they?! So the idea behind having a blog is to be able to communicate thoughts, ideas, history, projects and future plans in a better format than as Instagram comments and Tweets!
Anyway, this was just a quick introduction to say “G’day” and “THANK YOU” for visiting. Please feel free to contact us with questions and comments or feedback.
Have a great day! Best wishes, Rob
