Appeal

As one of the most famous ventriloquist dummies, it was only logical that a real Slappy ventriloquist doll would be made available for fans to purchase.

According to the Goldberger Doll Corporation, in 1998 a nine-year-old boy from Long Island wrote in suggesting they produce a ventriloquist doll of Slappy that fans around the world could purchase.

Fast forward to today, and there is a full range of Slappy ventriloquist dolls available, along with masks, costumes and other accessories for sale.

Far from being a creepy ventriloquist dummy, Slappy has grown to become not only one of the most famous ventriloquist dummies, but popular amongst fans and potential ventriloquists to practice with.

The Slappy from Goosebumps ventriloquist dummies range

The full range of Slappy ventriloquist dolls today covers a variety of different models of dummies, all with different novel features.

The entry model – Basic – is 30” tall and includes an instructional booklet to help you learn ventriloquism called “Seven Simple Steps to Ventriloquism”. This doll is really aimed at kids rather than ventriloquists, as the heads and eyes do not move and the hair is plastic.

The Standard Upgrade includes a hard hollow body, a ball and socket neck, a moving mouth and a post-mounted head that can move, nod and rotate.

Moving up the range, a Deluxe Upgrade brings moving brown eyes and molded hair, whilst an Auburn Hair Deluxe Upgrade Slappy from Goosebumps has a wig and the Super Deluxe Upgrade Slappy from Goosebumps also has moving eyebrows.

So as you can see, Slappy from Goosebumps is not just a creepy ventriloquist dummy, but also one of the most famous ventriloquist dummies on the market!
