Here's what customers say about 'Complete Stage Plans'


Mr. Rasmusson-

 The download worked fine for us.  The stage is great!  The plans were easy to understand and within a day we had a fantastic stage perfect for our new children's ministry!  We'll be sending pictures soon!  Thanks a million. God bless you for helping to enrich the lives of children everywhere through inspirational puppetry. 

Rhian A.

PS- Once we get accustomed to puppeting with the puppets we bought, we plan on buying your "You can do it!" video & book to attempt our own puppet making!  Thanks again.

Hey this is one of the best experiences we have ever had. We are a group of missionaries living on the border of Mexico. We go in weekly and have been helping in a particular community for several years now. On the weekends we do parties for kids with clowns etc. and have recently decided to expand into puppets. We've done them before and have had a lot of fun. Recently some friends bought some puppets on-line and then we all decided on your puppet stage. I have a small wood shop and we put the stage together in about an hour. One of the mamas came back with the material from Wal-Mart and we all simply flipped. Super beautiful stuff. Plans, materials etc. about $100. Wonderful. Thanks. Pray for us to get something done. God bless you.

We set up the stage this weekend, we simply love it!  Our kids can't stay away from it - every spare minute it's "Mom, can we put on a little play for you?"  It was J's  first time to be behind a stage with a puppet, his giftedness has been revealed!  Needless to say, we can hardly wait to share all of this fun with the kids at our ministry event next weekend!  Thanks so much for such a wonderful product!  In Him, Jand D (MI)

Dear Jim, (downloaded Complete Puppet Stage Plans - built his own stage)
       This is the best "live" puppet stage I have yet to see.  It is light
weight and easily adaptable to many different situations.  I am a former Muppet Performer having worked with Henson Assoc. and I have see some really clunky stages ...and worked a few of 'em as well.  One of the worst was built by Nickelodeon (very recently) and was to travel the country ... it was made by a TV crew of very heavy metal and wood.  They were used to TV sets which are very secure ... but DO NOT TRAVEL WELL!!  Assembling and breaking
down that stage was a nightmare, not to mention expensive to fly all over the country.

My best to you,

P. L.- New Jersey

After purchasing your video and stage plans, we are implementing these in our children's church. 

The instructions were very explicit and detailed, and very simple.!!!  We have made one puppet so far and are working on the stage plans.

Thank you for making this valuable resource available,!!! it opens up a new world of imagination and ministry. I'm very excited about making more puppets, this is a great tool, for anyone to get started, since it takes you from beginning to end.  Keep up the great work... Here's a picture of Stanley...
