Around the World with Yancy - A Puppet Travel Portfolio
- Anika3, CNN iReport producer
For the past few years I have been lucky enough to tour the world as an actor and puppeteer, taking one of my own creations along for the ride!
Wherever I go, you can be assured Yancy will make an appearance as soon as cameras are drawn. This has led to some incredible experiences abroad, breaking through language barriers and allowing me to see the magic of puppetry in many other cultures.
In addition to a memorable collection of pictures, there are also numerous videos from our travels floating around the internet as part of our ongoing travelogue.
Since I first built him in 2009 while touring with Sesame Street Live, Yancy and I have traveled to fourteen countries across three continents - and we intend to continue our journey as long as his fleece and foam hold up!
