Puppets for Ministry | Children's Ministry
Our products make great teaching tools for VBS & Children’s Ministry
If you work with kids and families in a church setting, or in a church school, you have challenges that we are very aware of. Steve Axtell has been very involved in Christian ministry, created puppets for Big Idea’s VeggieTales, as well as many video productions including the Donut Man, Prayer Bear with Steve Green, The Knock Knock Show and ImagineLand which are broadcast all over the world.
Axtell puppets are amazing, top-quality characters that your audience will never forget. Using characters….real characters is what it’s all about.
“It’s like bringing a superstar into the class every week!”
We not only serve large puppet teams at super churches with sets of our amazing puppets, and professional Gospel ventriloquists with unique custom characters, but we also serve the individual teacher or missionary who can only afford one really cool puppet for their class and needs tools to help them get started.
NO VENTRILOQUISM or BIG TEAM NEEDED !
We hear this from a lot of our customers….”I am not a ventriloquist, I don’t have a puppet team at our church, and I don’t have time to organize one, I don’t want to set up and tear down a puppet stage every week, so how can I get started using your puppets in my classroom, VBS, or Children’s Church?”
We have help! Many puppet companies have well produced pre-recorded CDs for church puppet shows. Most require a puppet team with 4-5 characters and a big stage &set up….
Our products make great teaching tools for fire safety, health, education, bicycle & helmet safety, and much more!
NO VENTRILOQUISM NEEDED
We have now produced a series of CDs called “AxTrax” which are for one puppeteer and one puppet. No set up! Just memorize the routine and perform your lines live.
The puppet’s voice, sound effects and music are all on the CD! This is your chance to bring an amazing Axtell puppet to life in your classroom!
Each AxTrax “Wide Open” CD has 5 different character voices to choose from. Professional studio recordings, with music from award-winning Greg Jackson. Take a listen and see for yourself how it works.
VBS – Sunday School – Children’s Church – or ANY TIME!
We have several general family-friendly routines as well as Gospel / Church related routines….all very funny and light.. allowing for a great introduction to various topics. They are great for giving you the set up you need to get attention and lead into futher teaching by you or the class leader.
