I collect many things old toys is my major collection. One of my favorite collections is puppets! My first two old ones were the Hazelle Fairy marionette, and my Mortimer Snerd ventriloquist dummy when I was 11. It all started when I had to have the My Three Son's talking Myrtle puppet. These are just some of my puppets, and I lean towards marionettes because I love to fix them.
The greatest thing about marionettes is it's not a huge collectable right now. Even my first made Pinocchio is still under $100. That is because it's a cross collectable. My Gepeddo only slightly more because his mouth moves. I keep my puppets in my memorabilia room, with my old Ouija's, and Movie dolls. (They stopped making the original Ouija in 1991, but that is another story.)
Logical or not if I were to sell any, my talking Myrtle would be the highest seller of my collection.
