From string to stick

Question: "In the past couple of years, I have run across a couple of old vent dolls with the string in the back of the neck, no head stick. One still worked, the other didn't. Do you also work on these string dolls to make them into headstick working figures? Just wondering because I threw them away thinking they had to be head sticks to be redone." Sandi

From Mr. D: There is seldom a reason an old vent doll of any type has to be thrown away. Almost all can be repaired, redone, upgraded, converted to hollow body with headstick, eyes added, etc. That's what we do, six days a week. I do recommend you contact Kevin Detweiler first. While I work alone, Kevin has an entire team working with him on just such jobs: animatedpuppets@charter.net
