Plastic Ventriloquist Dolls – $5.00 each

I found these cleaning out my friend Roger’s storage unit. He purchased these years ago for $5.00 each. They are light weight plastic with somewhat flimsy bodies and were given to me after spending the day in a dirty storage unit. They are so cheap that they don’t even have a pull string to work their mouths.

    I LOVE THESE! The cheaper the better. I love the way the legs just hang ther ewith no filler, just limp little extensions of fabric. The no string thing is insane. Are you supposed to just grab their chins and pull?

    What should really kill you is the clarification of these dolls here. They were NOT $5.00, they were two for $5.00! Roger got these from the back of a crappy magazine and the advert said “be a ventriloquist”. With dolls that have no pull string, what’s up with that? I’m going to hang these in the area that I paint. Motivation and inspiration comes in many forms for me.

    He doesn’t by any chance still have the magazine with the ad does he? Does he remember what magazine it was? Ungodly great Kitsch find for 2/$5, tho I’m certain Kitsch isn’t what Roger was going for at the time.
