Thanks Tom Smile

The sound in the studio was very weak, the monitor was far from the stage and I can hardly hear myself Smile

I hope the TV version is clear Smile

No...the Professor puppet in my avatar is not the new Original from Wanlu. BUT the Professor is getting ready to go one on one with THAT puppet once it arrives...being a Paleontologist, the old professor is getting excited! Either that, or it's my hand in his head.

Hello Wanlu, glad you liked the video of my existing puppet and can't wait to get my hands on the new version you are making for me, at what is a most reasonable cost.

regards,

Dave

Wanlu, curious if custom puppets become the sole rights of the purchaser?

Well, Wanlu has finished mine. Can't wait to get it, but will post a photo. Tod, the answer is 'yes'. I only know, because mine is custom made.
Wanlu is very accommodating and will help as much as he can. Forst rate.

Yup...custom made puppets and designs provided by the clients remain properties of the clients. We won't resell the same puppet to anyone.

Dave, your duck is on the way Smile

Oliver...totally forgotten about the orangutan...I'll work on it now. Please email the design Smile

My only warning is we make it the way you want it Smile Sometimes we want to add something or revise a feature but we can't because we work on your specs...

Watch out for our new product Smile a 5 puppet set Smile Really cool!!! but we don't know what to charge for this yet...a set is consisted of 5 puppets Smile

Wanlu, thank you for the follow up.

1) What do you think is the average turn-around time for custom puppets?
2) Can you briefly describe the creation process for us? Ie., receive picture/drawing/description from customer, have your team sew the first draft, send picture to the customer for feedback, finish up the puppet based on feedback..., etc?

Thank you,
Tod

Hi Tod,

Im afraid we don't have artists who can draw or something like that...we usually take sample photos from the client and we work on that.

Dave showed us a video and pictures of what he wanted. Showed him pictures of finished product and he approved for shipping. Smile

Doug gave us free hand on making something for him...no specific design...showed him the finished product and he asked us to make some revisions and we did...the problem however was we had to remake the puppet all over again Smile

Because of this, we can't accept orders without specs anymore...we will require a drawing or pictures of a sample puppet. It will simply make the process easier for all of us.

It takes 2-3 weeks to make a custom puppet Smile

My duck has arrived and I must say it is just great.

I was worried, having worked with my present model for about 12 years, that I would be afraid to make the change. Not at all, it's going straight into to my show tomorrow for a 10 year old's birthday party.

The face on my existing duck is different to Wanlu's and I did ask that it be the same .. it is !! I can hardly tell the difference. I can't thank Wanlu and his 'team' enough. A brand, spanking new and excellent puppet at an affordable price.

As soon as I can, I will upload a photo.

Cheers, Wanlu, you are a hero.

Dave

"Doug gave us free hand on making something for him...no specific design...showed him the finished product and he asked us to make some revisions and we did...the problem however was we had to remake the puppet all over again."

Clarification:

The "revisions" were for parameters that I had specified at the beginning of the process. This somehow did not get communicated forward to the actual puppet maker...so it wasn't like I was a poop...I had asked for certain things that were not done..this omission caused the puppet to not be usable and Wanlu agreed that the design as finished did not work. I don't want to describe it further...except to say I had asked for a couple of key elements to be small and short and they were made LARGE and long. Smile Wanlu to his credit immediately went about making it right (I've not yet seen the finished product) though I thought all that had to be done was to shorten and restitch the elements but Wanlu said it should be redone from scratch. So be it. (or Sew be it.) Smile

The process for an exclusive SHOULD contain specs and they should be followed but also allow for back and forth communication. Wanlu should be able to come up with ideas and clear them with the buyer.
