"Marlon is the epitome of a class act! He answered all of my questions about puppet construction and anatomy in a clear way that I could understand even though I am an outsider to the craft. From conception to execution he continued to astound and impress me with his skill. I love the puppet he made for me and plan on using it and cherishing it for years to come. I would, and already have, highly recommend Marlon and his expertise to anyone looking for a custom puppet. He also provided me with a personalized tutorial on how to properly use and maintain my puppet that was extremely thoughtful and educational. All around I am ecstatic with my entire experience!" - Dustin

Meet Rhythm, Harmony and Melody. These live hand puppets were made for Rock-A-Baby, an interactive music program for infants and toddlers based out of Rhode Island. For more information on Rock-A-Baby you visit their website by clicking here.
Mr. Marlon is a hard working and talented puppet maker and I’m so glad I found him. At Rock-a-Baby grown ups use puppets in every class, party & concert. There are a lot of classes and a lot of kids each week, which means a LOT of young hands all over these puppets - grabbing, tugging, pulling & hitting. He makes them durable enough to withstand the constant use and abuse, but also lightweight and user friendly. Excellent materials, fantastic know-how, and he even lets me into the workshop to give design input and ask questions. He’s a pleasure to work with and he makes wonderful puppets! - Marc
