Fru Fru Puppet Theatre was founded by student puppeteers who worked at Pionirski dom (Pioneer Home) with Lojze Kovačič as their tutor and produced several small-scale mobile performances that toured kindergartens and schools. Later on, the ensemble (which then included Mateja Bizjak, Ava Lokošek, Irena Rajh, and Andreja Hočevar) fell apart. However, in 1992 Irena Rajh established a family puppet theatre troupe with her husband Marjan Kunaver, reviving the Fru Fru name.
Fru Fru Puppet Theatre collaborates with numerous puppet makers and designers, such as Igor Cvetko, Marko A. Kovačič, Marina Hrovatin, Petra Petan puppetry directors, such as Jelena Sitar, Matevž Gregorič, Katja Povše, Jan Zakonjšek, Mateja Bizjak, musicians, visual and puppet artists, and writers. Fru Fru also collaborates extensively with Zapik Theatre and Konj Puppet Theatre. Its productions regularly appear and are awarded at the Slovene Puppetry Biennial and the Summer Puppet Pier Festival.
Fru Fru's productions have appeared also at international puppetry festivals in Belgium, Poland, Croatia, Scotland (best children's performance at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival), Italy, Austria, the USA (regularly touring in the Washington area), etc.
