Troggg the blue monster and his Larrikin Puppets friends make learning fun with our Health and Wellbeing puppet show, which has been performed in several childcare centres and Brisbane City Council’s Kids Collective events at Roma Street and South Bank Parklands.

Such delightful moments include Frizzby’s food allergy anthem, “What You’re Allowed To Eat Instead” and his duet with Flossy in the dental hygiene themed, “Swig, Swish and Swallow”.

Troggg and 3-year-old Marina talk about lots of different ways to keep fit, and we learn about what all the different emotions mean and how we can deal with them or help others during difficult times.

We also look at different fruits and vegetables that are good for us, as well as a couple of ‘sometimes’ foods that should best be left for special occasions.

Scrambles joins Marina for a lovely duet about getting help from parents when brushing their teeth after meals.

Moss has a bit of an upset tummy, while Frazzamatazz takes us through some fun dance steps for the audience to participate in.

Lots of laughs and learning about health and wellbeing for audiences aged 2 to 5, their teachers and families.
