According to Emily, 6, from Columbia, these clonkers are used for clapping.
Hannah, 12, from Brownsburg, IN shares her knowledge of the triparoo, which is used to trip people. An anonymous tip also suggests that it might be used to hurt people. Those humans can be so violent!
Emily also shared that this stick is used to roll things flat. But Hannah argues that it’s actually a meltyfiradoo, for decorating hair.
Without Hannah’s help, who would guess that this human device (brusheesnooze) serves to make you sneeze? But there’s anonymous dissent; maybe it’s actually for puffing cheeks!
Another great insight from Hannah: this snipahoner is great for plugging those human noses! The use is undisputed so far, but it’s also been suggested that the name may be nick-nack.
This stooper is used for poking. Now the only mystery on this one is who told us.
One weekend into the show, we have a lot of new contributions! Here are our current thoughts on what these objects may be:
b) Shiel bo
d) To 4 hol
c) Blac flufroo
a) Scuttle told us this is a “dinglehopper.” But what does he know? Everything?
What do you think the humans use them for?
We at the Ariel’s Grotto Museum, currently on display in the lobby of Olney Theatre Center, are looking for help in identifying the names and uses of several new acquisitions.
