As some of you know from Facebook, we have several new puppets coming out very soon. Many will have AxTrax for non-vents, and some can be made up into Hands-Free puppets as well.

The World's Oldest Man (could be Oldest Magician, oldest Mailman, Oldest Singer, etc.)
Hang-On Monsters (a series of wacky monsters that wrap around your body)
Meerkat (Kid's love Meerkats because of the new Discovery show Meerkat Manor)
Weasel (Pop goes the Weasel... put it in a box, crank a handle, never pops up right)
Duck Amuck (A very funny Duck)
P-P-P Platypus ( Strange mammal that lays eggs and feels so left out in life)
New birds (3 or 4 new big designs)
Big Bad Wolf (quite the opposite really)
Funny Monkey, etc...

Here is a sneak peek at 2 of them... let me know your comments!

COOOOOOL!!!!

The old man is awesome. The monster is reminiscent of what your turtle might look like after one too many at the late night lobby jams ! I can't wait to see what you come with for the "new birds" and the duck.

You have one very fertile imagination, my friend....

Steve,

The nose of the World's Oldest Man covers most of his mouth in the head-on shot. While cheating him to the side would be easy, it may make his mouth movements harder to see from a distance. Just my thought...

Great characters, can't wait to see the others.

Ooops...you mentioned "the nose"! Don't let him hear you say that or he'll start reading you the riot act! Actually, come to think of it, he can't hear too well so you're probably okay! Whew! Close one!

As the "World's Oldest Magician" I'm working on a special hand holding a break-away wand that can be controlled from the end of an elbow rod! Every time he's about to do a trick it breaks.

Steve,
The old man seems to be perfect as an Asian character, with those chinky eyes.
Interesting!
As usual, great work!

The more I look at that old man's head, the more it takes me to a place like "Dark Crystal" or something similarly mystical. He would make an awesome aged wizard.....

Yes, The hair and beards we will be using with him is really incredible... it's made by a company that specializes in custom special effects furs and hairs. He will be amazing as a wizard.

This guy is so old he could be great grandfather to my other old man...the "old Storyteller".
