    I found the following message at: http://www.dpuppets.com/discuss/_PuppetTalk/0000009c.htm

    "From: David Pannabecker

    "After much thought and prayer, we decided to discontinue the manufacturing part of our opperations. I am in the midst of a doctoral program, as well as serving as a worship pastor at my church here in Indiana. The work load is too great to keep "everything" going and I felt that I needed to focus on my church work and studies. We are talking with some companies about licensing our product so that it can remain on the market. Thank you to all of you who have sent e-mails of concern and encouragement."

    So that's what's going on.

    fishbone, I want to trust you but, and I quote
    "Puppets that Teach. Early research for Sesame Street showed attention spans increased when puppets interacted with the people on the show.

    When Puppets Speak, Kids Listen!

    ARMS LENGTH PUPPETS ARE NO LONGER AVAILABLE.

    Arms Length Puppets are no longer available. "

    thats what you see when you try to order, otherwise I would have sent an order in right away!!

    OH My Gosh!
    I looked at the site to see what you were talking about and thought. WOW that girl looks Really Familiar! I went to the home page which stated that they are based out of Levelland Texas. Thats where I grew up (small town about 13,000) I went to school with that girl!

    You can still get the video and puppet kits from arms length's website. THey no longer sell their manufactured line of puppets but it looks like for a while this other place pick-me sold them at one point.

    Thanks! Had me worried there for a second. yeah, well.... I don't really want someone to make them for me. That would really take the fun out of it for me. I just want to see David's method.

    well, I recieved my online receipt on 11/17/2003 and am still waiting...I am in the UK though so I would have to wait a little longer than you guys....Michelle of Puppetplanet's order took about 2 months to arrive I think so allow yourself a good 6-8 week wait as he checks all the orders by hand and is a busy guy....all good things come to those who wait!
