  1. Easy to use if you have basic DIY skills 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Aug 2017

    This can indeed help you convert a pull string doll to one with a more professional control stick setup, but it is far from "Plug and Play". This is not a negative comment on this product but more of a general comment on approaching the task of disassembling and reassembling a 30-inch ventriloquist doll (at a minimum, you'll be completely ripping open the torso area and removing and reattaching the head, converting the mouth mechanism, or more depending on your doll).

    You'll need a variety of hand tools and maybe even a power tool or two. Also a variety of glues Etc. Plan on spending hours, not minutes, depending on the level of complexity of your project and what you're trying to achieve.
    Overall I was very satisfied with the results I got converting my pull string 30-inch "Tommy Talker" doll. It's a lot more fun being able to move the head back and forth and control the doll with one hand.
    A great resource for the general approach and the type of skills you're going to need is located here: http://www.alstevens.com/ventriloquism/fred.html

  2. Retrofit Kit for 30" dolls 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th Mar 2017

    This is a great kit to upgrade or fix your doll. I was able to fix a doll that I wanted to repair so that I could pass it down to my kids and with this kit I was able to do so. Thank you.

  3. Brilliant Brilliant! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Jul 2016

    I bought a 30" Charlie on Ebay to replace the one I got back in the fifties. After using other headstick figures for 60 years-useless! But with the retro kit I am able to make the little Charlie move like he should! I just bought a 30" Mortimer too. With two kits, I'm swinging!
    Thanks for being so clever to make conversion fast and easy. Finding the right size waste basket was gonna be a challenge.
    What a "turn" of events!
    God Bless
