"Wow! What a gifted craftslady YOU certainly are! Tex is absolutely spectacular; I've never seen a dog quite like him which obviously was your intention. And yes, my hand fits comfortably inside! Kudos to you and your wonderful artistry. Tex is really something; his mouth is nice a big which means he can say quite a bit! lol!
Thanks for the personal courtesy of shipment prior to clearance of my personal check which you can rest assure will go through with flying colors.........just like ol' Tex.
Wishing you all the best of luck; you've made your mark here in NYC already!"
"I just picked up Bible Bunny from the Post Office and I have to tell you this is the best puppet I have gotten by far. The detail is just as my sketch and my description. I almost cried when I opened him up. Never before has one of my creations looked so awesome and worked so well. I just can't believe the quality of work behind him. You guys never cease to amaze me. Thanks so much!"

"The Dummy Shoppe has gone beyond making good puppets. They make puppets to fit your needs for what you want and do. Also, they cater to the working professional knowing that the sooner the puppet is ready, the better it is for you to be able to make $. The more $ you make the more puppets you can order so that you can have one to fit any holiday or event. Or maybe just to make yourself happy cause you want to have more puppets than anyone in you neighborhood! I know I've always wanted to top Mr.Rogers , Sesame St and Avenue Q. ( I move alot )"
Steve and JET,
She arrived safely and is now getting used to her new home! She is GORGEOUS!! Pictures didn't do her justice! We had to have a discussion as to which tiara she wanted to wear - I finally let her wear the rhinestone one. So she is happier now. I will take pictures and send them to you. Can't believe how easily the mouth is to manipulate - oh no that means she will probably talk even more!! The blinking mechanism is very easy to work! It will take a bit of getting used to - a whole new way of performing but will definitely add much more personality! Thanks SO much!!
Another very pleased customer!

Dear JET and Steve,
Delilah arrived today and in perfect condition! WOW...she is beautiful. I now have the challenge of rehearsing to get the animation down smoothly and write her material. We will tape a show hopefully sometime during the holiday season so you can see her work the crowd for laughs!
Thoughout my adult life, God has used me as a messenger and mentor to many talented individuals. However, I never imagined my encouragement and influence in re-directing your talents would have such a dramatic impact. The quality, creativity and unique individuality of each character you create speak for themselves. You are a true artist blessed with a wonderful gift. In my opinion, you have become the new "Verna".
Blessings to you both... and thanks again for such a wonderful puppet.
Love you both,
". . . .your talent precedes you. Being an ol' poop in this biz I got the opportunity to meet Verna back in '86....you have taken her bat & glove to a whole new ball park !
I can't wait to get "Crash". He's now a parachute instructor with a bad stammer problem....just can't seem to get to 10 to pull the cord !"
You got me excited. Can’t wait to see the photos. I was practicing with Rusty on the ferry last night coming home and two boys came up and stared at me for a long time and couldn’t believe he was a talking dog. Another girl came up and was absolutely awe struck with the character. Your handiwork has the love of the Creator in it and makes for a lot of happiness. You and Jet have been the best puppet makers I’ve had the privilege to work with.

Agnes is actually my second Agnes. I had an idea for an elderly old lady with spunk many years ago. I saw a lovely old lady on Ebay. I had to have her. I ordered her and she was immediately a hit in my shows. Truth is…I used her so much, I knew she was starting to wear, and as she was a DummyShoppe figure, I called and requested a duplicate. When she arrived, I admit, for a little while she seemed like a stranger. The new Agnes was comfortable and perfect in every way. Sounds strange, but she still felt strange to me, even though, so comfortable to use. We finally had our first show together, and immediately everything was perfect. The figure is comfortable, mobility perfect, and her features and characteristics captivates audiences each and ever time. I love her so much in her ease of use, quality construction and characteristics, that I have since added her Husband, Cecil, an elderly old man, Matthew, a Zombie toddler, and Ak Chu, a spunky immigrant, though she claims to hail for Oklahoma.
The figure maker/ventriloquist relationship with The Dummy Shoppe and Jet is one that I wouldn’t trade for anything. JET is so insightful she sees my vision, and creates the best quality and comfortable figures. True quality and true quality people.
