The youth of my generation referred to the handle of a wagon as the "tongue". Today, it may be simply the "handle". But I made this puppet with moving mouth, open and close eyes, and light-up bow tie, to present a lesson on the importance of taking care about the words we say. Without control of the tongue, this puppet will soon be involved in a serious accident. The same is true for us if we do not control our tongue and the words we say. It also could be used for other applications such as being a helper, carrying its share of the work load, being a fun cooperative playmate, etc.
