I'm wondering how those of you who use soft puppets pack, store, and transport them. Cases? Duffle bags? Something else? Also, do you use the same container on stage as you do to transport/store your puppets?

Thanks!

I use one of these bags from The Dummy Shoppe. They'll even monogram it with your figure's name for free

My soft puppets are individually packed in duffle bags then placed in a suitcase with wheels Smile

I have 2 Maher cases and 2 ATA cases for my hard figures.

In case I need to travel by airplane, I put the head in a small sports bag along with some other stuff like my laptop and hand carry it. The body along with the vent stand, masks, a soft puppet or two, a marionette and a few other stuff are placed in a big suitcase and checked in.

Hi!
I found a big and light plastic case at a local music store..
I think it is normally used for drums and stands, but it works ideal for lugging my
Puppets around.. It has a locking retractable handle and wheels.
They changed all of the maximum weight allowance on the airline that I mostly use -
Rendering my old custom cases useless for travel (I had several cases made up, but when they became
Too heavy to travel with, I now use those cases to store our Halloween decorations)..
I usually pack my puppet bodies and my clothes in the checked luggage - but try to carry the puppet heads and
My animatronic/ electronic stuff as carry on.. So far I have had no problems carrying remote controllers and mechanical
Faces as carry on. The security guys see all of the little disembodied heads and wave me through as if they see that kind of thing
Everyday..

In cases like only a short act is required  but I need to travel by airplane. I place the head in a small sports bag and hand carry it. The body is placed in a bigger bag along with just the masks, the vent stand and my clothes.

If I don't feel like bringing a hard figure, I bring a soft puppet and the masks. If this is the case, everything is placed in a sports bag and checked in.
