The greatest distance travelled by a full-bodied puppet is 8,000 km (4,970 mi), which is the reported distance covered by Little Amal, a giant puppet of a nine-year-old Syrian refugee, which travelled from Gaziantep, Turkey to Manchester, UK, from 27 July to 3 November 2021.
Little Amal is 3.5 m (11.5 ft) tall and is constructed from a moulded cane body and carbon fibre head, arms and legs. The puppet is operated by three people.
Amal - meaning "hope" in Arabic - travelled from the Turkish-Syrian border through 65 European cities, to shine a light on the refugee crisis.
