Best Dog Toy – A Storytelling dragon fascinated set of Golden Retriever puppies
Golden Retriever puppies are so cute. Not only are they extra cute, but a puppy seems so eager to learn new things, or as one video shows, to hear the unique sound of a stuffed dragon toy telling a story. The set of golden retriever puppies get so engrossed when the storytelling toy starts talking and can’t help but pay attention.
Dalton Storytelling Dragon
The toy is called Dalton the Storytelling Dragon from Cuddle Barn. The soft, purple fur on the storytelling toy makes it the perfect companion to tell a nice, relaxing story to a child, or in this case, a group of golden retriever puppies.
Dalton Five classic stories
Dalton can actually tell five classic fairy tales, including Hansel and Gretel, Rapunzel, The Ugly Duckling, Sleeping Beauty, or as in the case of the puppies, Jack and the Beanstalk. As he weaves his fantastic tales, Dalton also moves his mouth and head.
Jack and the Beanstalk
As Dalton begins to tell the story of Jack and the Beanstalk, the puppies gather around. They’re all curious to hear what their tiny little friend has to say. As the book Dalton is reading changes color, the curiosity of some of the puppies is aroused even more, and they approach.
Get comfortable with Dalton.
One of the puppies soon snuggles into a toy lamb in a dog pen and quickly falls asleep with his reassuring words. The puppies live in Redlands, California, in a family-run breeding home, SunnyDreams.
You can also find another video of the puppies and Dalton on the company’s Facebook page. In that video, Dalton reads the classic story “Hansel and Gretel” to the puppies, who swarm around and twirl up to their storytelling friend.

The Jack and the Beanstalk Story Overview
Jack and the Beanstalk story is an ancient English fairy tale. It first appeared as “The Story of Jack Spriggins and the Enchanted Bean” in 1734. In the form of Benjamin Tabart’s moralized “The History of Jack and the Bean-Stalk” in 1807.
“Jack and the Beanstalk” is best known for the “Jack Tales,” a series of stories featuring the archetypal Cornish and British hero and stock character Jack.
According to researchers at Durham University and the Universidade Nova de Lisboa, the story originated more than five millennia ago, based on a vast archaic story form now classified by folklorists as ATU 328 The Boy Who Stole Ogre’s Treasure.
The original story depicts a “hero” who takes a liking to a man’s wife, hides in his house, robs him, and finally kills him. In Tabart’s moralized version, a fairy woman explains to Jack that the giant had robbed and murdered her father, who also justified Jack’s actions in retaliation Andrew Lang follows this version in the Red Fairy Book of 1890).
Jacobs gave no justification because there was none in the version he had heard as a child, arguing that children know that robbery and murder are wrong without being told in a fairy tale, but gave a subtle retributive tone to it by referring to the giant’s last meals of stolen oxen and small children.
Many modern interpretations have followed Tabart and made the giant a villain, terrorizing lesser people and stealing from them so that Jack becomes a legitimate protagonist.
For example, the 1952 film with Abbott and Costello blames the giant for poverty at the foot of the beanstalk because he has stolen food and wealth and the hen that lays beautiful golden eggs that initially belonged to Jack’s family.
In other versions, it is suggested that the giant had stolen both the hen and the harp from Jack’s father. Brian Henson’s 2001 TV miniseries Jack and the Beanstalk: The Real Story not only abandons Tabart’s addition but disdains Jack, reflecting Jim Henson’s distaste for Jack’s evil actions.
