  1. Puppet arms are designed to hang naturally, so if you don't use them they still look ok. That allows beginning puppeteers to focus on developing the basics. Once you have the basics down, adding motions helps make your puppet appear even more lifelike, if done properly. The normal tendency when starting to use the arm rods is to go overboard and use them too much or make a motion and leave the arm hanging out for the rest of the play.
