Magnets - Magnetic Finger Puppet The Unemployed Philosophers Guild

If illusion leaves you weary and wary, you need this radical Bertolt Brecht Magnetic Personality. A magnet on your factory locker. A puppet on your finger when you present The Threepenny Opera - without emotional manipulation of the audience, of course. Not for use with cheap propaganda!


This George Orwell Magnetic Personality goes with you everywhere. It's a magnet in the kitchen where you are a plongeur. It's a puppet to keep your finger warm when you become a tramp-monster. It's a companion when you are an Embankment sleeper. Be decent. Be human.


Kurt Godel was pals with Einstein, dubbed the most important logician since Aristotle by one of the greatest mathematicians of the 20th century, and now he's a magnetic finger puppet. Mike drop!


Painter, filmmaker, record producer, author, celebrity, intellectual -- Andy Warhol was all of these things. And now you can add finger puppet to the list. We find it ironic that the great Pop Artist is now a toy himself, and we think Warhol would be proud. The Andy Warhol Puppet is about 4 inches tall and is nicely detailed for such a small thing. He wears a very arty red satin jacket and black turtleneck sweater, and his head is crowned by a dramatic shock of white hair. He's also magnetized so you can stick him to your refrigerator, filing cabinet, or Campbell's Soup can. Andy Warhol once said An artist is somebody who produces things that people don't need to have. So we guess that would make us artists here at UPG.


Freddie Mercury and Queen captivated the crowds on tour and at the “Live Aid” benefit concert – with more than a billion viewers all over the world!

Now your Freddie can keep you company on the road! On the tour bus, he’s a magnet on the mini fridge. When the house music plays, he’s a finger puppet on your glammest of fingers, and – he will – he willrock you!

Not recommended for use in thunderbolts and lightning (very, very frightening).

Somebody to Love.

Approx. 4” / 10cm tall


Artist Frida Kahlo was best known for her striking self-portraits, so we'd like to think she'd be amused by this finger puppet version of herself. Frida is dressed in festive Mexican garb, including lace cuffs, red scarf, and floral hair arrangement -- all in a 4-inch puppet! Act out scenes of her in her studio or of her tempestuous romances with Diego Rivera and Leon Trotsky using our Rivera and Trotsky finger puppets (not included, but available on our website)! The bun of her hair also has a secret magnet, so you can stick Frida and Diego together and be comforted by the fact that, after all these years, they're still attracted to each other.


Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg sports her favorite jabot to preside over your finger as a puppet or your locker as a magnet. Approximately 4” tall – but don’t let RGB’s diminutive size fool you. Justice Ginsburg will always remind you to fight for what’s right – even when you must declare: “I dissent.”


The Grim Reaper is a personification of mortality on your finger and a reminder that all is fleeting on your fridge: Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of leftovers, I will fear no evil…


On your finger, she's a world-traveling puppet. On your locker or fridge, she's an investigative reporter of a magnet.

Approximately 4 tall, the rowdy and principled Nellie Bly Magnetic Personality is the perfect companion for all your adventures!
