My mother has been a nurse, so faking sickness was very hard to do as a child. That being said, when I was sick I occasionally pretended to be just a bit sicker to avoid going to school.
It's fun to bundle up in blankets, so definitely cold.

It sort of depends on the situation. For example, if I needed a team of animals to pull my sled through the icy tundra, I'd pick huskies.
Like most kids in he 80's, I grew up with the Muppets. Jim Henson's creations fascinated me as a child. Anything Muppet related, I gladly watched over and over again. When I was quite young I watched Fraggle Rock and Sesame Street. As I grew a little older, I became a huge fan of the Muppet Show, but I was really fascinated with Jim's later work on The Storyteller and The Jim Henson Hour. I've been hooked ever since.
I'm pleasantly surprised by how many families from around the globe watch our videos. Every day we hear from parents telling us how their child enjoys singing and dancing with Zach and Reggie. We love that they send in videos to show us how engaged their children are. It's amazing!
