Criteria for Ventriloquist Figure In Ventriloquist Central

The main focus of the Ventriloquist Central Collection is that the figure be of collectible status and hopefully made from carved wood. Wooden figures are what I like best but of course that isn’t written in stone.

There are many other figures in the collection that are not made of wood such as the English figures which are made of paper mache and then of course the McElroy figures which are made from plastic wood. For the most part the figures are also over 25 years in age.

Now there are also figures in the Ventriloquist Central Collection that have been donated and those figures are not subject to my collecting criteria. Figures that are donated to the collection will always remain in the collection and will be proudly displayed next to the antique figures.

If you have thought about, what am I going to do with my figure when I stop using him, or if you have already stopped using your figure and it is just stored away you may want to consider giving it a new home here in the Ventriloquist Central Collection. I proudly accept any and all donations and make sure credit is profusely given. As the doner of a figure to the collection you are given all the credit for everyone to see in the collection pages of the Ventriloquist Central website.

As the saying goes,” You can Never Have Enough” and for ventriloquist figures that is my motto for sure!!
