Humpty Dumpty escorts two children to the other side of a high brick wall at the bottom of the garden and into fairyland, where nursery rhyme and story characters await. Beautiful scenes can be let down to show Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, The Sleeping Beauty, Puss in Boots, There Was an Old Woman, and Beauty and the Beast. (Hunt p. 337) The pop-up mechanisms are designed so that young children can operate them.
