I'm working on a foam latex puppet and need an puppet eyes mechanisms. Does any one know where I could just buy a complete eye set up that moves left to right and blinks?

Sorry If this is posted in the wrong section. I was having a hard time finding a spot but since my project is in progress I figured this was a good spot.

There are several builders here that build such mechanisms ............... You could try Pm Julie from Out of the box puppets http://www.outoftheboxpuppets
or Jay from Dr.puppets http://www.drpuppet.com/ Jay even sells a tutorial on how to build your own.

The problem with pre-built mechs is that generally mechanisms have to be custom built to fit a particular puppet. You can start with the mech, then build the puppet around it, but that seems counter-intuitive. Jay (Dr. Puppet's) video is very good; there is also a DVD available from PlaySoup. I ordered it awhile ago, but haven't had a chance to watch it (I have heard good things about it though).

I agree with Andrew ................... In order to get a good fit I think you will have to build it yourself or get someone to build it for you then build up from that. Braylu offers some kits and does custom building for vents. Not sure if that will work for you.

Simplest example I've found is this example on u-tube..

Is this what you need?

Just a few things to keep in mind while building mechanisms in a head is that any such devices do break or wear and will need to be repaired so you need to build it very well the first time....if you decide to use the YouTube video above you will have many problems and need to make sure you have an area you can get into the head and repair it. 

I am not a big fan of blinking eyes most people don't know how to use them properly and it looks awkward.....look at the Muppets barley any of them had any mechanics and they were still loved and believable.  Just my two cents on the blinking eyes.

All the best with this challenge...
