Our customers say about our production:

Hi Ivan,
 Just wanted to let you know that the Queen puppet was delivered to me and she looks FANTASTIC!
 I can’t thank you and any that worked on her creation enough. I received multiple compliments on her from my co-workers. So I know our audiences will be spellbound by her appearance.
 I will try to send you a show picture of the Queen in action. And I’ll probably be contacting your company in the near future for another puppet order.
 Take care and many thanks again!

Thank you so much for your excellent service and the wonderful puppets you make. I loved using your reindeer over Christmas in my Mrs Claus show My new  Dog arrived safely and I cannot wait to work with him in my show. I have renamed him Mylo the Magic Dog and as you can see below he cannot wait to get to work.

Thank you once again

Ivan and Maria,

Thank you so very much.  Your work is extremely good, and sooo realistic. I really love MR Willy (Westie) and Mr. Toad.
I know now that you are the master craftman for hand puppets.

I would definately recommend "Pavlov Puppets" to anyone who desires a trully professional hand-made puppet.

Take care and God bless.

Ivan & Maria,

let me start by saying thank you. My friend ordered me the owl puppet from your site for christmas, and I recieved him before new years, which, considering I live in australia, is pretty quick :) Since "Milo" has  come, I have taken him on hospital visits and to pre-scools, and he is a hit with the kids. my mum has even "adopted" him into the family. I can't wait to get you to do my custom order, and will purchase from you again in the future. So from myself, and the kids of bli bli prep, and all the kids in Nambour General hospital: "Thank you from the bottom of our hearts"

Message: Greetings,

Hi, my name's Paul Pistore. I work with Brian Seward at "I Theatre" in Singapore as their puppet master.
I've been building and performing puppets in TV and Film in the US for nearly 20 years.
Here's a link to a few of my puppets and a recent production of the Wizard of Oz we did here at I Theatre:

We ordered a couple of puppets from you a few weeks ago. I Just want to say, I'm thoroughly impressed with you puppets and service.
First) Your puppets are by far the best I've seen from a pre-built puppet company. They perform well and were obviously constructed with puppeteers in mind.
I have to add, the Duck is adorable with lots of personality and the chicken, while a bit tight in the beak, is a truly good looking puppet. The details on both are really nice and add to their professional look.

Second) We needed them on short notice (This is actually the reason I didn't build them myself) and you really came through. Thank You!

I will definitely recommend your puppets to others who need professional quality puppets. You can bet we'll order from you again.

If you find yourself in Singapore, please give me a call.

Take Care,

about Grasshopper puppet

Dear Ivan and Maria,  
I've just completed my summer shows which starred the purple ant puppet you madefor me  The quality and artistry of your work truly made an impact on my audiences.  So many people commented after the show on the expression and "alive quality" of the puppet.  The kids roared with laughter as soon as I brought her out. It was a joy to perform with and I look forward to my next Pavlov's Puppet. 
Thanks for being so easy to work with and for delivering an outstanding character.

Attached is a photo and if you'd like to view a clip of the ant in action, here's a youtube link:

Dear Ivan and Maria Pavlov:
    I want to thank you for the beautiful craftmanship on the parrot you sold to us in March/April of this year! We have named him Pinkerton and he has been entertaining hundreds of young children and their families this summer! I am sure we will do business again! Thank you very, very much!

Red parrot puppet

The puppet I received is an Einstein character.
I call him Dr. Noah Tall. Think about it.
I have had an idea for this type of character for a long time, so I knew right away I wanted this puppet when I saw it.
The quality is excellent. The puppets from Pavlov's are all hand made. Sculpted in foam and covered with a fleece material and then hand painted.
They are very lightweight and easy to use, There is a unique "knob" inside the head above the upper mouth that your hand rests comfortably on, and an elastic strap inside on the lower mouth to slip your thumb into. This gives the performer a very solid hold on the puppet and makes the mouth a joy to work.

As many of you know, I'm 6' 9" tall and have fairly large hands. My hand fits easily and comfortably into the puppet.
They make a large variety of characters - people, birds, animals.
I'm from the old school and have generally always performed with hard figures. I'm sure I've changed my mind to a degree now and will also be using this very nice Pavlov's soft puppet in my show from now on.
These are professional puppets all the way, and priced extremely competitively for a puppet of this quality.

about Einstein

Randy the Reindeer has been a huge hit over Christmas. We have done Christmas parties, visited nursing homes, read The Night Before Christmas for kids and rang bells for The Salvation Army kettles. Tomorrow, we have a church service at a local nursing home.
Both Horton and Randy are without a doubt the best puppets I have ever used. They are colourful, big eyes that make contact with an audience; they are light to carry which makes them perfect for walk around shows.
All the best to you and your family!

Hi Ivan and Maria

I just recieved the Dog.  What can I say??!!!  It is beautiful!.  It is
amazing.  It is so expressive.  Myself and my kids have been playing
with it all morning.  It is so very well made that you guys deserve a
puppet making oscar.  I am going to have to put it away soon and remind
myself that I bought it for WORK and not to PLAY with.  I have ten pro
puppets and this is now my favourite.  I will be ordering from you again
very soon.
