Converted upgraded (Semi-Professional) dolls are similar to amateur dolls except the body is hollow and you control head and mouth movements from a "control trigger stick" inside the body. These dolls have been upgraded from the original amateur dolls. The head rotates and tilts side to side and controlled within the body so the hand is hidden. The eyes are stationary.
This style is excellent for beginner ventriloquists. The doll comes in original box and ventriloquism instructions.
NOTES: Each character has its own unique characteristics. Lester and Charlie's mouth tends not to open as much as the other characters. Danny's head is a little smaller than the others. Please be aware that these features are from the manufacturer of the basic doll.
Understanding figure classifications
All dummy makers classify their dummies differently.Here at Braylu, we classify the dummies into four categories.
1. Standard amateur -
Standard doll with the string out of the back of the neck with limited movement.
2. Converted semi-pro - Standard Upgrade
Standard doll that has been upgraded to have a hollow body and placed on a control stick that controls the mouth movement. The eyes are stationary.
3. Premium Upgrade -
An upgraded semi-pro standard upgrade doll where there is moving eyes and wig
4. Professional figures
Professional figures are complex custom figures. Typically they contain a hollow body, control stick, moving mouth, moving eyes. More advanced pro figures can have raising eyebrows, crossing eyes, upper lip sneer, moving ears, extended tongue and other features. This style is for advanced ventriloquists.
