Hello all,

anyone here use Bongo Gorilla by Axtell in your routine? How do you like it? audience of all ages or just kids/ adults?
i know Kimmo, uses him brilliantly.
I'm thinking of possibly trying to acquire one if possible, still on the fence about it.


Any pictures you guys or gals have would be great!

I had mine custom painted dark flesh color by Axtell instead of the bluish tone a few years ago. He is very funny!

Yeah, Bongo is well liked by the kids and versatile. Any puppet is what you make of it, more or less. I had Axtell put a magnet in one of the hands so he could hold stuff that has a magnet or metal in it. I should have had them put 2 magnets in the hand because things can pivot around the wrong way with just one magnet.

I live Bongo. I actually use it as two different characters. Stanley and Pinky the Baby Gorilla.
Here a bit of Stanley from my Let's Get Visual DVD
