Behind The Scenes

NEW ADDITION! Welcome Gregory

 

Welcome Gregory

 

This little guy has joined the family this week.

His name is Gregory and his original partner was Lionel A. Hunt. 

During the “60’s” Lionel conducted children’s evangelism rallies across North America and Gregory worked along his side until 1966 when he passed.

 

Mr. Hunt authored two books:

“Handbook on Children's Evangelism,” “Mass Cild Evangelism” and “Fruitful Child Evangelism

 

after Mr. Hunts  passing in 1966 Gregory was adopted by another children’s evangelist, Ron Caya in Ontario who used Gregory in his Evangelism Ministry also.

When Mr. Caya retired he returned Gregory to the Hunt family and he was watched over by Lionels son Howard L. Hunt of Anchor Academy

a school that also works with youth.

My Passion

The stories of the lives of vents and their figures are my passion and my mission is to find, secure and preserve the collections and histories of the ventriloquists and figure builders who originally bought these great characters to life. 

My figures have been on the big screen in the past and present and they have bought wonderful smiles and heartfelt laughter to many.
Hope you enjoy my passion and delight in the stories, fun, laughter, quirkiness and sometimes "happy" creepiness that only vintage figures can convey. 
 

Meet Us Out At Vent Haven

We're heading to Vent Haven This Year to make new friends, connect with old friends and of course search for more vintage ventriloquial figures to join our vent family.

We're looking for Vintage/Antique Figures Only in any condition and this year (for the Vent Haven Convention Only) we are also willing to trade some of our newer guys for older guys.

So please come visit us in the Dealers Room

The Transformation of Barnabus "The Misfit" Monkey is underway.  Barnabus started as an original sculpt I commissioned "Max Echo" ( a young, talented, upcoming figure builder) to create for me.  I have a passion for monkeys and I wanted an original pair. I love The way Max interprets characters so he was the perfect choice and he totally delivered.
