Subject: [Puptcrit] Parade Balloons...

Hello everybody!

I'm a puppetry grad student here at UCONN and I'm working on a research 
paper focusing on Tony Sarg's contributions to the Macy's Thanksgiving Day 
Parade Balloons.  There is a significant amout of information out there on 
the topic, but I'm having a little trouble researching the development of 
the balloons over the past twenty-thirty years.  I tried calling Macy's but 
got the brush off.  Let's see, some specific questions would be...

Who Designs/Builds them now?


Can I talk to them?

What are they made of now?

Etc., etc...

So if anyone has any insight it would be greatly appreciated.
