At the magical wish tree on his grandfather’s estate, he conjures up a friend, which is an infant dragon whom he nicknames “Yowler”. They grow up together as 15 years go by.

This mechanical dragon puppet is made of foam latex over a metal armature and mounted to a board that allows the dragon to preform realistic movements via an elaborate cable-and-lever system. All the cables used to make the puppet function remain but have not been tested for functionality. The animatronic dragon puppet has had some restoration to remove aged cracking and stabilization. The puppet measures approximately 25.5″ x 17.7″ (65cm x 45cm).
