Sea Turtle Puppet

Growing up I had a series of Wizard of Oz figurines that would move their arms and legs if you on pulled their strings. This is a version of that design where you use a downward pulling motion to cause the flippers to flap. The beauty of 3-D printing is that you can print the whole thing in one go with the chain already attached.  You could also easily replace the links with string if wanted to improve durability.
