I sure wish I had one for you, but while I was generally familiar with what a Wubble was, I don't know anything about latex, other than once they were worn out, that was it. That's why I stayed away from anything latex, I didn't want to depend on one and then be without it or a way to replace it. I have a couple small latex puppets, also Lovik products, I use very sparingly since they can not be replaced.

I sincerely hope someone in here can come up with some answer for you.

You know, Bill...I don't think it will work. I THINK I understand the nature of these wubbles: thin(ish) latex, right? Probably slush-molded. Latex begins to degrade from the moment it dries. Any cast-latex puppets I've had in the past I don't have any more, but I have dealt extensively in latex prosthetics and masks for theatre. They degrade and rot and begin to shrink over time. I MIGHT have one muppet-style latex puppet in a box downstairs. If I do, it'll be somewhere over forty years old. I should seek it out and see how it's fared. I have, however, had latex masks that have only lasted, perhaps, twenty five years or so before shrinking, rotting and going crispy around the edges.

If I haven't fully understood the composition of a wubble, I apologize. This must be very frustrating for you.
