April/May 2013

Thanks to all of you, we just keep getting busier and busier! New designs are going out the door almost as quickly as I make them, such as our new lady rabbi handpuppet, below. We also continue to have a wide range of patients in the hospital, including one of our largest (a four foot donkey) and one of the smallest (a 5 inch teddy bear). One of our most intersting patients this month was James Aristead Bonvillain. A 48 year old soldier doll who had an unfortunate run-in with a bulldog named Jasper and needed a face transplant. He went home last week and his people called to say “He looks like a new man! I can’t say enough good things!” Pictures of James before and after are below.

This week I’ll be sending more patients home as I prepare for our first show of 2013! We’ll be in Mountain View at the A La Carte and Art this coming weekend, May 4-5, from 10-6 each day, so come visit and see our latest original dolls, puppets, and stuffed animals. We’ll be in space #221, right on Castro Street in Downtown Mountain View.
