~ Doreen M., Portland, OR 2008
"We bought these stilts from you this summer for Ellie's 10th birthday.  She wore them at the Art and Soul festival this weekend in Oakland.  She is in a circus youth troupe and after each performance she walked around handing out fliers. She had so much fun!  Thank you!"

~ Mary R.  Oakland, CA 2012

"I just received my 3 foot pegs today - they're beautiful!  I've been walking stilts since 1997."

~ Tracy M.  Groveland, FL 2012
“I did a gig on those stilts last Saturday and I gotta say, "I love them!" Very comfy and sturdy. I've been stilting for over two decades and I know stilts. These are great stilts!”

~ Rhys Thomas, JuggleMania Professional Juggler, Portland, OR 2009
"You are fabulous.  I am thrilled to be supporting a woman veteran owned US business.  Our family draws a lot of attention. I wouldn't be surprised if we didn't gin up a few more sales for you this coming year."

~ Mary Beth B.  Kirkland, WA 2012
"We got the stilts today. Thank you so much. I realize this is a business for you but it's a great service, too....I wish you could have seen our son's face. I thought he was going to hurt his cheeks he smiled so much and so big. He was walking on his own within ten minutes - a little wobbly and only 15-20 steps but solo, none the less."

~ Deb F., Plymouth, MN 2010

"Thank you for creating such wonderful stilts.  They really have been perfect and allowed us to do amazing things for our new theater work, RED-EYE to HAVRE de GRACE - let us know if we can forward you photos of them in use once the show opens in September"


Thaddeus P.  from Lucidity Suitcase Intercontinental  Philadelphia, PA 2012
"We did get the stilts. Our first performance  is next weekend with our students for this semester. Eight 5th graders on stilts :-) We will post pictures for sure.  They are beautifully made and are a real pleasure to walk on. The ones we made are functional but not nearly so elegant."

~ Melissa M. from Amphibian Stage Productions  Fort Worth, TX 2012
"I would not of survived this parade without your help.  I made it 10 blocks without falling.  But I was falling the day before... It is excellent for the core and your balance.  It is a confidence builder. "

~ Joe F.   Meeker, CO 2012
"yeah, they {peg stilts} arrived just with your e-mail. they are seriously solid and well made. thanks!

Bio mechanics study at Omaha University in Nebraska
Exciting news:

A pair of stilts from PegStilts.com are being used for a bio mechanics study at Omaha University in Nebraska!


It's a study of the energy costs and motor skill learning of walking on stilts


Info from the researcher:

"I am just finishing up the project for which you donated the stilts and I had a NASA fellowship to pay for my time.  I presented the work at Nebraska Academy of Science Aeronautics & Space Science Section and the summary was published in the Proceedings of Nebraska Academy of Science.

You can see the motion capture cameras in the background.  There are little spherical markers attached to the stilts to track their motions in 3 dimensions.

I am talking to the lab director about actually starting a new study using the stilts where the subjects just walk on the ground (walking on the treadmill on the stilts was pretty difficult for people with only an hour of stilt practice).  If the lab director and I work out the details of another study, we would start bringing in subjects to collect more data this fall."

From Trash to Terrific: A Lesson on Change

by: 

Excerpt:
"We'd like to highlight one puppet here that has nothing to do with bugs, but it MUST be talked about.  Kricket and a few volunteers walked along the Oregon coast last year and collected bags and bags of trash.  Out of the rubbish that people threw into the water and onto the beach- the cups, plastic bottles, styrofoam take out containers, and foam peanuts- she created a beautiful sea turtle puppet. It's four feet long and impeccably constructed..."
