Understanding ventriloquist 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.
