After several requests that PAI help our customers buy, sell or trade original Hazelle marionettes, hand puppets, and memorabilia, we have decided to list names and contact information on our website for collectors. While our in house gift shop always accepts donations of Hazelle items to re-sell, that will give you a tax write-off for your donation to a 501(c)3 organization, now we can also help you trade or purchase Hazelle items and products with other collectors and dealers. Please contact the person(s) listed below directly for information about their items.

You may email us at [email protected] to have your listing added here.

I have MANY Hazelle marionettes,stands,plays,brochures, and stages.My Grand children have out grown their interest and 2 are in college already!!I would like to sell all the items we have acquired over the years and put the money towards their education and have someone enjoy the items we have.  I also have complete Daniel Oates Bozart collections.We have a complete collection of in the box marionettes and the stage still in it’s original box.The nice thing about this design was the controller that you can just pop off the strings to untangle.Very good for the younger ones.   Email me for a list of the items I have, with prices.
