Is the word you're looking for marionette? I think your puppets are beautiful and creative. Extra points for movability.

Very nice!!  Really like it.  And love the idea of motion "toys" too.


Actually though, I'd think of this as a "jumping jack" figure rather than a "marionette"... the articulations are all in one direction (lateral here and flat-to-flat), and there's only one gathered-string to pull which moves all the joints together rather than each separately.

I think the type shown in this lesson by Judy Belcher is fairly similar (but it's activated by squeezing and loosening the supporting wood sticks instead of pulling a cord, and also the figure is in profile):

Fun to look at anyway.  There are also more "jointed" polymer figures of all kinds, as well as some lessons on how to make the jumping jack type in general, on this page if anyone is interested:

(... click on Dolls & Figures > "Inspired by Paper or Other Material, Figures"
... and  also Various More Jointed Dangles)

I had another one I made for a wedding shower... But he was a bit obscene. So I decided not to post that one.

I have no clue what word you are looking for since I'm pretty sure you have thought of puppet. Heh. These are absolutely gorgeous. Love the colors you chose.
