Do you ever have anyone looking for Veggie Tales puppets by Axtell. I bought a set of Veggie Tales latex puppets from you in 2002 I beleive. Used them one summer 4 times and have been storing them since.

Yes, people occasionally look for the beautiful Veggie Tale puppets. They make great centerpieces for banquets as well.

Another good site to list them is (children's ministry leaders) or

My question is voice maintenance - what is the best way to maintain your vocal cords when you don't do a vent program frequently. I do health education and my "assistant" will come out at the end and help me wrap it up - we do fine at that point. The programs are sporadic - 5 one month, 1 the next. I will practice in my car as I drive, but tend to get carried away and not know when to stop until it's too late. I've done the vocal excercises Stephen Knowles talks about on his DVD. Any other tips ?

(this discussion has been given it's own thread called "voice care".)

Just checking things out while I wait.

Just checking things out as I pass by. Do this every day. Love to look at all the great figures. Order was put in a week or so ago and I am waiting for the arrival of my Ding Dong Dodo. Expect to have lots of fun with it. I am new to vent.,but having lots of fun with it. Looking forward to working with the kids in our school system performing. Working on fire prevention shows and first aid for the local Red Cross and with my church in our summer VBS. Working on my props for the shows. I will check back with you when my bird arrives. Then we will have somethings to talk about. Later guys and gals.

Here is a skit from a 2006 post on this forum. It might generate some idea for your dodo. I wrote it based on a really old joke.

Y: Boys and girls, today I want you to meet a very special bird.
V: I'm special! I'm special!
Y: There is no other bird in the world like her.
V: I'm special! I'm special!
Y: If anything happened to this bird, then her kind would be extinct!
V: Wha-a-a-t? I don't stink!
Y: I didn't say that you stink. I said that you're EXtinct!
V: My eggs don't stink!
Y: You are a dodo.
V: And you are a ding dong!
Y: I'm telling them what kind of bird you are!
V: I'm special! I'm special!
Y: (to audience) She is endangered.
V: Wha-a-a-t? Why am I in danger? Are these kids mean?
Y: No. These kids are very nice!
V: They're special. They're special.
Y: When an animal is endangered that means that there are very few of them left and we need to protect them.
V: Good!
Y: In your case, you are the last one. And we don't want you to be extinct!
V: I don't stink! And you're ugly!
Y: Whoa! That wasn't nice. Now you and I are good friends.
V: Yes, we are.
Y: I think you should say that you're sorry!
V: Okay. I'm sorry that we're good friends!
Y: I think you should say you're sorry for the ugly thing!
V: Oh. I'm sorry you're an ugly thing!
Y: Boys and girls, sometimes we misunderstand our friends and we get our feelings hurt. Verna is my friend. When I said that she's extinct I really mean that she's very special.
V: I'm special! I'm special!
Y: There's no one else like her. She's one of a kind!
V: In that case, I think you're special, too!
Y: Thank you.
V: There's no one else like you!
Y: Thank you.
V: You stink too!
Y: I think I had better go and have a talk with her.
