Max – Puppet
Hello, I’m Max and I’m Mummy’s second baby. As I’m only a baby I go along to the Babybells classes. When I’m there I like to share samples with my friends – they like the samples but not as much as their mummies – they talk about them a LOT! I can give out samples for you too.
Elsie – Puppet
Hi I’m Elsie and I’m Mummy’s first born and elder sister of Max. As I’m much bigger than Max I get to go to Happy House and give out samples there. As I’m not a baby anymore (but I like to see them) I also hand things out at Babybeeps and Babybells – they usually go straight to the mummies as the children there are really young and little. Everyone is always very friendly and thinks I’m giving them small presents which makes me feel happy. I like it when we give presents out at events too.
