Animatronic characters entertain and educate people worldwide. Here you can see outlines of the service work that can be booked for your animatronic figures. Animal Makers will trim, color, repair, upgrade, and reprogram your automata. Since 1979, we've created over 1,000 lifelike characters which perform all over the world.
