Review of Once Upon a Puppet

I purchased three of Lotte Sievers-Hahn glove animal puppets. It was an interest I had aquired as a member of the Puppeteers of America. Also I had grown aware of the quality of the Lotte Seivers-Hahn wooden, German made puppets. When I discovered this company, I communicated my interst and found a wonderful person who shared my interest and was willing to help me aquire seveal of their animal. The communication was outstanding and as a result I confidently follow through with my purchase. Prices were reasonable and I immediately trusted the founder because of both the electronic and later, hand written messages. The immediate thinking was that this was a trusted and professional company that exuded thoughtfulness! Thanks for a most enjoyable purchase experience!!
