Piggie is showing Gerald her new toy. They try to figure out what her new toy does. They throw it up in the air and when it comes back down it hits the ground and breaks. In the end, Gerald realizes its more fun playing with friends and not toys. ( )

Piggie has a new toy, but doesn't know exactly how to use it. After much experimentation, they find out that it is a break and snap toy.

What a great lesson - especially for my 2 little boys! ( )

Piggie loves her new toy and gets "mad and sad" when Gerald (accidentally) breaks it. He apologizes, but Piggie's feelings don't change, since her toy is still broken. But then along comes squirrel, who recognizes the "break and snap toy." Piggie is sheepish, and asks if Gerald wants to play with her toy again; Gerald says no - he wants to play with Piggie, not her toy: "Friends are more fun than toys." Realistic emotions, humor, and friendship - classic Elephant & Piggie. ( )
