Guest post by my husband, Steve
Once upon a time there lived three green puppies named Scout. They were all owned by a young boy named Thomas. Thomas enjoyed playing, dancing and singing with the puppies very much.
Lap Pup Scout
The first green puppy named Scout was Lap Pup. Lap Pup was a medium sized puppy made of a hard plastic. Thomas loved to carry Lap Pup around the house. Lap Pup was particularly fond of playing peek-a-boo whenever you opened or closed his lid. Lap Pup was a very good talker. Every time he spoke his mouth would light up in rhythm with his speech. He liked biscuits and would encourage Tom to bring the biscuit to his mouth.
Tom’s favourite thing to do with Lap Pup Scout was to sing and dance. Lap Pup had a special music button which would play different songs every time it was pressed. Tom loved to skip through the songs until he found one he felt like dancing too. Lap Pup also had a special star which would light up and play Tom’s favourite song, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.
Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Scout
The second green puppy was Twinkle Twinkle Little Scout. Twinkle Twinkle (or TT for short) was a bedtime puppy. He was small and soft and loved to snuggle up with a nice blue blanket. TT liked to sing peaceful lullabies which help to soothe babies off to sleep. Tom liked TT because he played music. Tom loves music and will rock out to the most peaceful rendition of Brahm’s Lullaby like it was Pearl Jam. To Tom, TT was a day time toy he liked to dance to TT’s sweet, soft tones. I think that if TT had a different owner they would find him a great help in soothing and calming them when they were upset.
My Pal Scout
The third green puppy named Scout was My Pal. My Pal was the latest addition to the group and Tom loved him the moment he set eyes on him. My Pal goes everywhere with Tom. He is bigger than the other two puppies but just as soft as TT. Tom has no problems carrying him around the house (or even down the street). My Pal loves to sing and play games. When Tom first got My Pal he already knew 5 songs and loved to sing them to Tom! He also likes to play guessing games giving clues based on colour. One night My Pal spent some time with Tom’s Dad. Tom’s Dad thought he might be able to teach My Pal some new songs and games. By plugging My Pal into his laptop (with a provided USB cable) Tom’s Dad was able to teach My Pal all sorts of new things.
He taught My Pal Tom’s name: how to pronounce it and how to say it. Tom’s Dad then taught My Pal about all the things that Tom likes, for example his favourite colour, animal and food. Most importantly he was able to teach My Pal more songs that Tom loves, especially Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. Now My Pal talks to Tom by name and talks to him about the things that Tom enjoys. Also, as Tom’s interests change his Dad (or Mum) can easily retrain My Pal the changes by simply plugging him back into the computer. There are over 30 songs to choose from and a plethora of items to pick from that Tom may enjoy.
My Pal is definitely the big brother of all the Scouts. Though he can plug into a computer his “plug pack” is safely stored inside him. It can be accessed through a Velcro opening in My Pal’s back. It is quite simple for an adult to pull the pack out but it is a bit tricky for little hands which Tom’s Dad thinks is a great bonus. He also thinks that the fact that the “plug pack” is sewed into Scout is great as it keeps any pesky wires out of the way.
Tom loves his three green puppies named Scout and is sure that other children will love them too.
*Scout also has a sister named Violet. She is a purple puppy and can do all the fun things that Scout can.*
