Hello, I’m Nadia, the creator behind Bluebirds and Blackberries. This journey all started when I was studying King Lear a few years ago. We couldn’t find any puppets to keep track of all the characters, so I decided to create my own. Even though I never finished that set, I ended up creating sets of puppets for 13 different plays: The Tempest, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Twelfth Night, Much Ado About Nothing, Coriolanus, Julius Caesar, Romeo and Juliet, The Taming of the Shrew, Richard III, and Hamlet. I also created a versatile 3-way play set that you can use for 3 different plays: The Merchant of Venice, As You Like It, and The Comedy of Errors. And in the works is The Winter’s Tale!

Profits from my Shakespeare puppets go towards my dance training. My dream is to be a professional ballerina, and the training I need to get there is very expensive. By purchasing puppets, you not only get a helpful and whimsical way to act out the plays, but you’re also supporting my dream.
If you have any play you would particularly like me to do, send me a message!
