Hey Steve, for a while now I've had a turtle character in my mind. I've been waiting and waiting for you to come out with a turtle puppet. You said one should be out sometime in 2003. Well, 2003 is drawing to a close so what's up? Is it still coming?
Al, yes we are going to do this someday. It's not always possible for us to predict when something will come out because of the mountain of R&D we are doing. Tell me about the type of turle you want. How would you like the shell to be made? Would the head and feet and arms pull in or just the head or nothing?

Steve, you may want to consider a sea turtle. The flipper could have a bendable end so he could hold onto something and the hands wouldn't have to go inside the shell. They are also more streamlined so a performer wouldn't have as much bulk. I can imagine more color with them as well, perhaps a glittery cloth.
For a regular tortoise it would be good to have "pockets" built into the shell for object lessons. He could be a secret agent that way as well.
