Subject: Re: [Puptcrit] Dolls as puppers


In a lot of languages the word for Puppet and doll are the same.

I always thought that what makes a puppet a puppet is the inclusion of the 
human hand in some direct capacity of manipulation equaling animation.

So for me a puppet is not a doll, it is something (anything) that is 
animated by the hand. (direct)

As to the purpose, to communicate some thing to an audience.
