Important Message regarding our website:
We are sorry to have to inform you that until further notice, figure maker Mike Brose will not be building ANY ventriloquist figures, cast dummy parts or other similar items. Mike will be taking some extended time off for special medical treatment and needed rest.. etc., and will be focusing mostly on trying to get well to the extent possible. We hope that you will please understand.
If you wish to send Mike or Cathy a message, please use our contact page on the site (links below). Brief emails are best. Needless to say, Mike will be needing MUCH rest. Cathy has lovingly requested that friends and customers respect Mike’s privacy regarding the details of his illness and specific health care treatment plans. Mike and Cathy both genuinely appreciate all of the wonderful support and positive energy coming their way already! Thank you so much!
We also wanted to say that for now the website will remain in place so that others can continue benefiting from all of the ‘free figure making’ info and other such valuable information. Sadly though, for now Mike’s high quality ventriloquist figures and high end Cast Dummy Parts (that Mike is so well known for) will be out of production while Mike spends his time recuperating.
You can however send Mike (and his wife Cathy) your thoughts through the website email.

Mike Brose is one of the few figure makers who actually makes his living full time building these unique creations. He is known for his honesty, integrity, and quality standards. Mike has been hand building high quality ventriloquist figures for nearly 20 years and has customers in more than 30 different countries throughout the world.
Mike Brose is a bit of a renaissance man and does it all himself. He does the design work, sculpting, mold making, casting, mechanizing and painting work. He has also, behind the scenes, assisted and consulted with many of the well known names in the industry, and has helped them get to where they are today. Mike has generously shared his knowledge over the course of many years.
A figure by Mike Brose is built to last. It is exceedingly rare that one of Mike’s figures will come back in for repair. They are made so well that they function nicely for many years. His figures have very smooth mechanics that hold up exceedingly well over time.
