Fru Fru Puppet Theatre was founded by student puppeteers who worked at Pionirski dom (Pioneer Home) withas their tutor and produced several small-scale mobile performances that toured kindergartens and schools. Later on, the ensemble (which then included , , , and ) fell apart. However, in 1992 established a family puppet theatre troupe with her husband , reviving the Fru Fru name.
In 2005 Fru Fru Theatre produced the performance based on W. Holzwarth's The Story of the Little Mole Who Went in Search of Whodunit [Krtek Zlatko ali kakec, ki je padel z neba], which was awarded at the Slovene Puppetry Biennial in 2007, and in 2006 the interpretation of the story Goldilocks and the Three Bears [Zlatolaska in trije medvedi], co-produced by Glej Theatre, which received an award for best direction at the Summer Puppet Pier Festival, Maribor, in 2008.
In August 2007 Fru Fru Theatre produced the mini festival Labyrinth of Moments, an interactive instant street theatre event, on 4 stages set up within a labyrinth-type setting in a tent. During the day children were encouraged to find the performance of their liking, while in the evening the same challenge was offered to adults. Along with 10 Slovene puppetry groups – including Konj Puppet Theatre, Teatro matita, and Papelito Puppet Theatre – 7 puppetry groups from Slovakia, Italy, Belgium, France, and Germany presented their plays. The first venue for the "labyrinth" was Tivoli Park in Ljubljana, following which the structure was set at the city square in Maribor within the framework of the Summer Puppet Pier Festival. Labyrinth of Moments was presented in 2008 at the Edinburgh Festival and in 2009 in Reims, France.
