A neighbor asked me to suggest a figure for her 14 year old grand son to give him for xmas. He has never done vent before, but she says that he's interested in it.
She's looking to spend under $100 and won't consider a used one.
Also, what instructional dvd would you suggest to get him started?

A brand new $100 vent figure? That might be difficult to find unless they won't mind using a semi pro Lester figure.

For starting off what's wrong with a soft puppet? You can get some magnificant ones for well under a hundred, and lots of pros use them (Chuck E Bear with Strassman, Peanut and Jeff Dunham).
Get him that with a good DVD (Voicing your Dummy by Steve Taylor, for example) and she still comes under the budget and gives her son a very good start.

Definitely better to start with an inexpensive soft puppet. Axtell even has some very nice and inexpensive puppets for kids.

But if the family wants the child to get the feel of using a hard figure which is perhaps why they specified that it is what they are looking for, then a Braylu semi pro is okay for a child.

Thanks folks. I gave the information to the kid's grandmother. It's up to her now.
