dragoninturret_3044_w_rgbOnce kids discovered this latest pop-up puppet by Folkmanis, the dragon became a favorite! This purple baby dragon with metallic chest plate, ears and horn comes to life as he startles knights and maidens exploring the castle, lest you come near his turret. Folkmanis included a cute folk legend, “Fix Your Dragon” about a fearsome, pesky dragon who needed some taming so the kingdom could become prosperous again. This cute tale of turning around the dragon, can inspire a child’s story telling or simple be a fun read. Sometimes it provides new vocabulary to spark imaginations, like forked tongue, turret or kingdom. It’s fun to watch kids use the words as they become the authors of their stories, practicing valuable language lessons that can build later reading and writing skills.
