Does anyone have a bullying and school safety script you can send me?
If you have questions about the Kids on the Block puppets, I am the creator of the puppets. Email me at [email protected] or find me on FB. I look forward to hearing from you.
Is there a Kids On the Block group in CT or NYC?
Hello! How can I get in touch??
I friend of mine has a 15 yr old son with autism, He wants to be a puppeteer one day. Is there a workshop or camp we can look into for him?
Is anyone there at National HQ?? Silence is NOT Golden.
We have recently purchased four new puppets to join our six and we are in need of scripts - specifically for Depression and Bullying. If people have others they can send or copy I would like to know what is available. Thank you very much. Joan Burrows
where can I get an oringinal list of that each puppet represents?

The Kids on the Block puppets originated in 1977 in direct response to US Public Law 94-142, which required that children with disabilities be educated in the least restrictive environment. To date there are more than 1,000 local troupes worldwide

As the creators of The Kids on the Block Puppets, KOB, Inc. develops the puppet characters and curricula used by Kids on the Block troupes across the globe!

Mission: The purpose of the Kids on the Block (KOB) is to provide educational puppet programs which enlighten all children about disability awareness, medical/educational differences, and social concerns. By extensively researching and developing relevant and timely topics, KOB addresses a wide range of issues that affect today's children. KOB has a strong commitment to offering communities around the world programming which addresses children's questions, concerns, and needs. The type of education KOB programs provide will create positive attitudinal and behavioral change for present and future generations.

[01/14/16]   We had hoped for a quick and seamless transition but that will, unfortunately, not be possible. KOBHQ has temporarily ceased operations at our Maryland facility as "the kids" move to a new home in 2016. Your continued support of your local KOB teams is greatly appreciated and we hope to see you again soon.

[11/25/15]   Our office is currently closed for the Thanksgiving holiday. We will be finalizing Sept./Oct. orders and any remaining backorders when we return next week. Happy Thanksgiving!
