OK- since no one so far knows what Pocket Lady is. I guess our school was the only one that had such a thing? Anyway, dug up some old photos from my daughter's 1st b-day party. Aunty Arleen agreed to be our Pocket Lady that day. Borrowed the Pocket Lady smock/apron from my BFF Les, who used it for her nephew's 1st birthday. We were both amused that no one else knew what Pocket Lady was but us.
As you can see, the smock has a lot of pockets sewn onto it. The idea is Pocket Lady has goodies hiding in each pocket, kids give her a scrip and can pick which pocket they want the prize from. Prizes are normally small toys or snacks that are not gender specific. They were normally junk toys, but we were happy to get anything. For the record, these pockets were huge! I don't remember Pocket Lady's pockets being so big. I also remember her having a lot more pockets to choose from, but you get the jist.
When my friend Les used it for their party, she said they had one Pocket Lady for kids and one for adults. Adults got those mini bottles of booze- Maybe that's why they needed the pockets so big? Better not get those two Pocket Ladies mixed up huh?
Here's Aunty Pocket Lady with my niece. I think it was the perfect thing for kids that attended- since most were about 1-2 years old, so we had to think of stuff that they could do. Instead of a clown (which I'm deathly afraid of) or magician, we did our own small games and activities. In addition to Pocket Lady, we had a fishing game, decorate a frame and get your photo taken, and filling your party hat with pennies (Checkers and Pogo anyone?).
So now you know what Pocket Lady is? :) I just couldn't let you go another day in suspense! Ha ha ha! Check by Thursday to meet another of our new releases.
