    The Giz Wiz Show 1612 for March 3rd 2017, Our 95th Independent Production.

    Thanks to our wonderful Patreon supporters The Giz Wiz Show not only continues, but is heading toward the end of its 2nd year of independent production. If you'd like to support OMGchad & DickDe in our independent venture (we pay for everything ourselves, including travel) just click the Patreon link at the top of our show web page: You can also contribute just once via the PayPal link that's there too. And thank you for doing that! Our show wouldn't exist without our viewer's support.

    And now to more fun, educational and unique toys and games from the huge Toy Fair 2017 Trade show at the Javits Centers in NYC.

    Kids love Folkmanis puppets, but they're not the only ones.

    I love Folkmanis puppets too. They're so original and creative! At Toy Fair 2017 Folkmanis Puppets announced a new puppet collection. For the first time they're bringing iconic Disney characters to life with detailed, full-body puppets of Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, and Pluto. The company says these heirloom quality toys offer superior play value and are designed to last for generations for those who want to collect aqnd cherish them as collectibles. The Mickey Mouse puppet comes to life when you animate mouth and hands through the access point in the back. There are also pockets in the gloves to wave, clap and blow kisses. 22” tall. And don't worry, there's a Minnie Mouse too. Also 22” tall. Both are for ages 3+ with a SRP of $73.99 for either one. But wait, there's more! There's Donald Duck with a movable mouth and hands that bring his feisty personality to life (just use your imagination.) And of course, Pluto: The gang’s loyal canine companion Pluto has an expressive face with movable mouth and perky ears. Animate Pluto's perky ears with a squeeze to the low-tech airbladder at the base of each foreleg. Operate one or both ears to amuse and delight friends and family. Be sure to watch the video to see Pluto in action. Donald and Pluto are 22” long. Ages 3+. SRP $65.99. All should be available now, March, 2017.
