Wow, what a week, what a weekend, when Liverpool came to a standstill because the giants came home one more time….We love to call them the Liverpool Giants…YET…

These giant puppets or mobile street art pieces are actually French. They are the creation of the amazing French artist Jean-Luc Courcoult. 

Sadly it looks like he has “Retired the Giants” And we wont be seeing them in Liverpool again… They first came to Liverpool in Summer 2012. What a spectacle they were!

Xolo the dog was so surreal, and the Girl giant became the people’s favorite. For us at Pkjulesworld Xolo won the day.

Then they returned again in 2014. And one final time  7th – 9th October 2018!

So who or what are the Liverpool Giants? 

A family of Big Giant, Girl Giant, Boy Giant and their dog Xolo. Plus several other pieces. The giants of liverpool are marionettes or giant puppets are works of engineering and artistic feat! 

The first sighting was on Friday 5th Oct, when the big giant appeared on a beach in Merseyside. 

For the whole weekend gone, Liverpool residents have been specially wowed by the street art and antics of the Boy and Xolo the dog.

Then a surprise on Sunday the Giant Girl showed up to say her last goodbyes we guess! What a show!

The puppeteers put on an amazing show and the choreography was simply breathtaking.  

The Liverpool giants follow on from the Lambananas and the Penguins, all massive pieces of Street art. As far as pkjulesworld knows, the Lambananas were adopted by various people and organisations via an auction.

The Penguins…not sure what happened to them, probably also auctioned off!

The Liverpool Giants, well they are headed back to France, hopefully to a useful life as a family! Who knows.

The funniest bit for us was the Little-Giant boy headed home in a huge Sandal Boat

Its been said that a conservative estimated 1.3 million people descended on the streets of Liverpool to see these giant puppets. This is absolutely fantastic for businesses and the city of Liverpool Tourism.
