Just found these folks on the internet. Has anyone on the Café used them for a puppet creation? Curious what their cost range runs for custom work as compared to Axtell and Pavlov's Puppets.

http://www.furrypuppet.com/

Looks like they have some really unique puppets.

Very curious on the price range $500-$1000?

Thanks,

Bart

Went to take a look, but after five seconds when it hadn't loaded any content at all I left.

I think that might be an important lesson to some designers. I hate those flash openings, and I think a lot of consumers do as well.

I emailed them. Haven't heard back yet. I know how to contact them so I am hoping Doug you were using brief sarcasm.

I am wanting to know if any Café member have used their services before.

Brief but not sarcastic. Just fact. If it was my product I certainly would want you to contact me rather than someone not connected. But if they are not answering, that's telling as well.

I did hear back from them today. Have too send the artwork to him once it is final.

Then he can give me a quote. I am keeping my fingers crossed that it is reasonable.

If it is too expensive I will have Pavlovs Puppets make my character. I know they are in my price range.

Heard back from them. Must complement their responsiveness.

The initial estimate was $5000 for a custom puppet with clothing.

Wish I could afford that, but Steve Axtell charges $5000 for a custom exclusive puppet. At that price range I would have him personally make mine.

Definitely an upper tier puppet maker. So I am going with Pavlovs Puppets.

Someday I will hopefully have that kind of disposable income to be able to spend that much money on a puppet!!

I just clicked the little skip button and got right in. I too dislike those long intros.
Great looking puppets. Wish I could afford a mini me.

Custom Puppets with Pavlovs are around $1200.

Different style, but $4000 difference?? I love Pavlov's Puppet!! I have owned as many as 5 of them at one time.

Good News Update. Heard back from Furry Puppets they can build a custom puppet for me in the $2500 price range. I am going to have both of them make a puppet for me. Will post pictures once they are done.

The custom puppet price for $2500 was only a half body. Love their work, but to get a full body vent puppet expect to pay $5,000 and up.

Big theme seems to be that their puppets are made for HD TV studios. Their work is great and the do offer lots of unique things like silicon teeth and mouth palettes as well as animatronic capabilities as well.

Just beyond my budget.

I decided to go with Sonny Vegas for my custom puppet and I will also be purchasing a standard Big Bad Wolf puppet from Axtell when it is available.

Checkout my puppets. They are very different than what you usually see. All custom - one of kind. You wont have to worry about someone else having the same puppet. I work with foam, fleece and latex. You tell me what you want. I'll draw it up and have you approve the design, if you don't like the drawing, we can adjust it to your liking. My puppets have been adopted all over the world.

Sonny did a GREAT JOB with my puppet. I gave him the artwork and he created a puppet that far exceeded my expectations.

On top of that he is prices are very reasonable!

I can't say enough good things about Sonny Vegas. Anyone looking for a great foam puppet should give him a call.
