Where to Listen


>> Rachel: Oh hey! You’re just in time for Chompers, your morning and night toothbrushing show.

Start brushing on the top of your mouth. Pick a side, and brush all the way to the molars in the way back

>> KIDS: 3, 2, 1 brush!

>> Rachel: It’s Pets Week, and tonight we have more true or false for you. I'll say something, and if you think it's true, thumbs up (SFX TRUE). For false, thumbs down (SFX)

Here's your first one: 

Pet llamas like to be kept alone, away from other animals. 

So what do you think? Is the happiest llama a lonely llama? 

Find out after you switch your brushing to the other side of the top of your mouth, and brush your molars in the way back too

The answer is…. FALSE! (SFX FALSE) Llamas don’t like to be lonely, and if you’re going to keep a pet llama, its best to have a least two, like these two llamas: (SFX LLAMA) 

What’s a llama you ask? 

>> ZAC: No one asked that. 

>> Rachel: Well a llama is kind of like a camel. They come from South America, and lots of people keep them on farms. Llamas have wool, just like sheep, that can be used to make blankets, sweaters and scarves.  

Switch to the bottom of your mouth, and brush your front teeth too. 

Here's another true or false: 

The world’s oldest goldfish lived to be 30 years old

So is that true or false? Thumbs up or thumbs down? 

The answer is… FALSE! (SFX FALSE) the world's oldest goldfish lived to be FORTY THREE years old! THATS AS OLD AS A GROWN UP (SFX KID: WOOOOOW)

Switch to the other side of the bottom of your mouth, and don’t forget those front teeth 

Goldfish are a really popular pet, but if you want to get a goldie, there’s a couple things you should know. First, goldfish need a large tanks so that they have lots of room to swim around. They also need special food because they have sensitive tummies (SFX BLOOP). 

That’s it for Chompers tonight. Until next time... 

>> KIDS: 3, 2, 1 spit
