40 Days of Lent - Day Twenty-Two

Ten Plagues of Egypt Finger Puppets
Available at Bed, Bath & Beyond




Nope, I did not make this up, although I wish I had thought of it. I don't think I can express how much I love these. Looks like this weekend's task will be to build a little display case for the puppets. Or theater. I haven't made up my mind.

If your local Bed, Bath & Beyond doesn't carry them, check out the company's website. There is a warning on the back of the package that states "packing materials are a choking hazard for children." Safety first while your child plays with puppets based on lice, boils or a deceased first born.

Today's reading from the Faithful Words Promise Box:
Let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.
- Gal. 6:9

OY!

My personal favorite is cattle plague.

These aren't as fabulously insane as the Passover Finger Puppets or statues of Jesus helping children play games - but they are very cool and would look great on anyone’s kitchen shelf:

See Heroes of the Torah Glassware


Maybe some of you savvy shoppers have these already.

Now I know what I want for my birthday this year.

Ahhh . . . they are the happiest looking plagues I've ever seen!

Mrs. Collins - I assume you meant you want the puppets, not the plagues

mrs. collins said...

A small plague of frogs might be kind of fun.

And who gets the big ups for showing you the Jewy light, boy? That's right, Uptown Bob!

Word!

Yes, all credit for turning me on to these Torah toys goes to Uptown Bob (which, incidentally, is my favorite Billy Joel song)
