Eric and his team can bring anything to life . . . a sweatshirt, a roll of toilet paper, a potato knish . . . but most importantly, they can bring your ideas to life and make them more vivid and soulful than they were in your own mind.

One of the absolute highlights of my recent experience [. . .] was working with the Puppet Kitchen. [They] were a joy to communicate with: prompt, clear, and kind.  The creative process was smooth and collaborative.
