Have You Seen This? Not your toddlers finger puppet, part 2

FINGERVILLE The Muppets have had the corner on the market of non-creepy puppets for decades, but now they have a new competitor.

You have to admit that many puppets that arent Muppet-like are plain creepy. Horror movies aside, ventriloquist dolls are fairly unsettling for many rational adults, and traditional marionettes arent much better. Those eyes, man, theyll pierce your soul (in a bad way) every time.

Thats one reason why Barnaby Dixons puppets are so amazing they are incredibly intricate and detailed, but they dont give you the creeps. And on top of all of that, they are finger puppets. Tiny, adorable, fully articulated finger puppets.

Dixons new bug puppet is a riff on a puppet hes made before, but this time hes added a few features that take his creation to a new level. His bug had little bouncing antenna that give it a sweet personality, plus flapping wings that give him the illusion of flying jumps.

But the kicker is the glow-in-the-dark quality. Its not a special glow in the dark feature that you havent seen before, but for some reason its the extra step that makes the bug extra special. It also helps cool-ify the after-effects Dixon applies mid-video.

So move over Muppets, here comes the new wave of non-creepy puppets to entertain audiences of all ages.

Make sure to continue watching after Dixons sign off to see a sweet little bug dance.
