    This was kind of a splurge, I've been getting rid of the bulk of all my collected stuff, selling most of it on ebay and the half price bookshop. But it's still fun to buy collectibles too. Mostly I've been using the proceeds from my collectibles sales to fund my new vivariums - so it's one hobby or the other! LOL

    I saw this puppet a few years ago on ebay and it was a really expensive auction I didn't even bid into but I happened upon it again as a buy it now for only like $15 so I had to grab it. It's made by Folkmanis Inc. no date on it and I think it was stored with mothballs or maybe just near the clothes of a smoker cos it kinda smells weird if you sniff it. I'm keeping it on the patio for now to air out. I want to stuff the body and arms with pillow fluff from the craft store and put aluminum doll wires in it so I can pose it in the back window of my little car.

    Folkmanis still sells a mantis puppet but it's a"finger puppet" only a few inches big, and only the head & arms, no body.

    What did that mantid do to you?!? You've got your hand up it's... well. This forum is supposed to be strictly PG LOL.
    Good growing, Jack
