Thank you to Nina Dees for adopting Taka-Chan. Japanese ventriloquist Megumi Takahashi used this beautiful dummy for about 20 years and donated it to Vent Haven on April 28, 2002. Taka-Chan was made in 1980-1. The dummy was made by Masatoshi Mizguchi and has winking & blinking eyes, as well as moving eyes and eyebrows. Megumi bought this figure from Reverand Ichiro Noda. The kimono was made by an authentic kimono maker and it has the Takahashi crest. Visitors can see Taka-Chan on display in the original garage building. Thanks for adopting this great piece, Nina!
