Everyone knows the tale of the Little Old Lady Who Swallowed the Fly, right?? The classic nursery rhyme is beloved by many children and now we have created a puppet to go along with the story and song!  We will even include printed lyrics to the song just in case you need to freshen up on your fairytales.

This brand new puppet will provide much, much, MUCH more than entertainment and laughs. This puppet was designed for the purpose of teaching and making learning fun! She is a deluxe style puppet with a sculpted realistic face similar to our bible character puppets.

The puppet comes with a colorful sack containing small animals inside (everything she swallows in the song). Children will learn to identify and name different animals while having fun at the same time. This old granny comes with everything she swallowed, from the horse, to the cow, to the cat, and to the spider! Simply ask the child to "feed" the puppet the "fly" or the "cat" or even the "goat"! If you are working with a group of children, they will all have an absolute blast taking turns feeding the puppet and singing the catchy nursery rhyme! To make it even more interesting, have the puppet spit out incorrect animals. You can even use your own "cookies" such as the magnetic refrigerator letters and numbers!

Another great idea is to teach children sign language! Since the puppet's hands are operated by putting your own hands in the "glove" area, this lesson becomes much more interesting for the child and will hold their attention much longer than just having to pay attention to the teacher alone. Sit the puppet on your lap and use both of your hands inside the puppet's glove area to demonstrate various signs.

The educational possibilities are endless!  Highly recommended for libraries and classrooms.

*Includes free printed lyrics to "There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed A Fly"

Insert hand into the slot in the puppet's back to operate the mouth and "catch" the animals as they are being fed.

Amazing puppet February 17, 2012
Reviewer: DeseriAdrian from Kitscoty,ABCanada  
I am a playschool teacher and use "grandma" to tell the story. I changed it to have Grandma say she is going to cry and have the kids yell DON'T Cry Grandma! They love it as they yell EAT the CAT or other animals.  I have also made other pieces for the other stories from Scholastic..> There was an old Lady who swallowed a bat... or some snow...  Grandma visits us all year round.

Really Cool Puppet September 30, 2010
Reviewer: JenniferJoy from Emmitsburg,MDUnited States  
I have a library show that involves audience participation and this puppet allows for the kids to feed her.  The mouth is easy to use and its really cool that you can use your hands as her hands.
