The Teddy (Bear) Whisperer
The little girl, sitting up in bed, is barely visible amongst all her cuddly toys. There are cuddly toys all over her bedroom.
All the children (a minimum of 5, speaking parts included) enter on tiptoes. They look round admiringly, smiling ecstatically as they point out to one another various cuddly toys.
1st child : - Watch your step !
2nd child : - Even her pillow is completely covered.
3rd child : - Her shelves are even worse than my grandma with her pots of jam.
4th child : - It's worse than my grandpa's toolbox.
A child from the chorus : Worse than my mum's wardrobe.
The little girl smiles as though she has only just noticed the other children.
3rd child : - It's the little girl with 200 teddy bears, they're everywhere, they're everywhere !
A child from the chorus (repeating this air in a whisper): It's the little girl with 200 teddy bears, they're everywhere, they're everywhere !
4th child : - It's the little girl with 200 teddy bears, and we all wish that she would share.
