Restoration Of Fred and Ethel Decided

OK So I see that my way of thinking on originality has really found a home in most of you that read my blog. I really didn’t want to change the figures but I knew I just had to ask all of you if I was right.

They really would look so cool if redone but the originality can never come back once changed. So… that to all of you who wrote to me both publicly and privately on this matter. The figures will remain as they are and will stand proudly in their positions in the Ventriloquist Central Collection.



Dan Willinger is a ventriloquism enthusiast and ventriloquist figure collector. He has been collecting for over 25 years. He created the Ventriloquist Central Collection. It now has over 100 ventriloquist figures and over 50 of them are Frank Marshall figures. Because of his love for the art of ventriloquism, Mr. Willinger created the website Ventriloquist Central.
