Mr. Blue's Water Safety Puppet Show

What: Puppet Show

Where: Learning Express Toys of Sunrise (for additional locations see below)
How Much: Free

My good friend and I took our fidgety 10 month-olds to a puppet show this weekend at the Learning Express Toys of Coral Springs. The store itself is worth checking out. The staff is so friendly and the store has an incredible selection of toys for all ages. The show was all about Mr. Blue, a fish who forgets how to swim. His friends teach him water safety lessons as they get him back in the water. K watched was enthralled from beginning to end. She did not move. The puppets were a hit with the audience. The audience members varied in age from baby to about 6 or 7 year-olds. The creator is Julie, a private swimming instructor who will have your little one swimming in less than a week. She travels all over Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach. Julie is likable, honest, and passionate about water safety, swimming, and kids. My friend and I purchased the story book about about Mr. Blue, which also comes with a DVD. A meaningful moment for me was when (after the show) a father told a personal story of how he had put swimming lessons on the back burner and later got a phone call about his daughter being in the hospital after an incident when she almost drowned. His daughter is now happily swimming after lessons with Miss Julie. When you live on a peninsula, swimming lessons aren't just fun, they can be a real life saver. Here are some other upcoming shows:
