Our older daughter has a lovely Punch and Judy bank that she purchases about four years ago from the gift shop at The Center for Puppetry Arts. The bank is really hefty and has a moving frying pan.
As I was pondering what to do, my eyes rested upon the P & J Bank...no baby! Oh my -- of course, Punch and Judy need a baby. So I took a peanut, wrapped it in swaddling tissue, and ta-daah! Baby!
The history of Punch and Judy is quite interesting -- and I've had the pleasure of seeing some fabulous Punch "Professors," as they are called. Glyn Edwards was one of the profs that I met; he performs all over the UK with his wife, Mary. This history, though! Wikipedia actually has a good history of Punch and Judy, as does "The Punch Page."

My husband wants us to build a Punch and Judy show...we shall see!
