BURDS of a feather flock together

July 24 2007, 7:26 AM 

Thanks Tony...that is an AMAZING price. They could easily get over $100 for Buzz Bonkit.

Buzz was part of a three set of characters called the BURDS. The other two characters were Chat Racket and Tina Talkatoo. Toys of these were sold in Toys R Us back in the early 90s. They were characters on the PBS show "ImagineLand" with Jack Houston. http://www.axtell.com/axtellpb.html

We will probably come out with them again someday, if we license them for another TV show. There has been interest in them.

Dear Steve,

I won a chat racket off of eBay for $21 dollars! It shipped today and I'll post a photo on your Facebook when I get it.

That's unheard of! Great price! He's the most popular of the 3 and usually goes for over $100! Score!

what all the racket?

Chat Racket was our first Axtell puppet. My wife Jeanie used to operate him - he was the Melon Bird in our first show.

The BURDS were also licensed to a production studio for use on the PBS Series "Jack Houston's IMAGINELAND"

My Chat is the first Axtell puppet in my collection. Bought in Montreal on a school trip when I was 15-16. He's still in great shape. Any chance of bringing those back into the market, Steve?

We may manufacture them again with another company someday. Lot's of cool stuff coming in our future! Stick with us!

Ah-ha. That did it.

On eBay I got it for $15 plus $6 shipping. I might get it today and I'll show you my own Magic Moment

Burds and Vinyl Vern

These are products that we had made in limited quantities... they are collector's items now. Neither of these are rip offs, they are my official designs. Ax

I emailed the Verne seller and notified them of their description error. They originally had it listed as latex.

There's a Tina Talkatoo up there now with only 8 hrs left.

The prices for these vinyl puppets are a bit steep (realize they're unavaiable), but I'd rather give money directly to Steve's company. Any chance the Burds or Vinyl Vernes will hit the Axtell site this year? Chat was my first Axtell puppet, and I'd love to have the rest for a reasonable price. I know you've had manufacturing issues in the past years, but I keep crossing my fingers.
