OMG I have been looking online for the past month or so for something on "Fun at One". I also remember it, I'm from Long Island in NY and it was on ch. 13. I can still picture one of the ladies, with short dark hair and bangs. Like you, I would come home from kindergarten and plant myself in front of the good ole b and w tv and watch them make puppets out of brown paper bags or something similar but that one always remains in my memory. I was so intrigued by how they made things with paper plates, paper bags and such. I'm so thankful to you for posting this even if it was 3 years ago. I read somewhere in my internet research that Ms. Mary Ellen Rohon was in local opera. That's great you spoke to her!

Oh wow, SuzyCue! Another FAO fan! yes, Miss Mary Ellen sounded JUST the same! That woman you remember was Miss Eppie. She was still alive three years ago, too. Not sure if Mary Ellen still is, but I am so thankful I told her how the show changed my life.

Di, I thought it was just me who just couldn't wait to see what was in that Mystery Box. I used to love that show. I love the memories.

Since then, I always loved surprise things. And I yearned to do that for kids/grand kids. But never had either....so, oh well.

hi. i have been periodically searching for any information on this show...finally, i found this! i'm so happy, i just joined!
fun at one was one of my most favorite shows as a little girl! i would 'play' at being miss eppie. i made my own picture board where i would stick the pictures up and take them down. does anyone remember that?
anyway, i loved this show and absolutely remember it! i grew up in nyc but now live in bucks county and write for a newspaper.
glad to finally have someone to share this memory with.

Gosh, I've had a couple of private messages about this show as well. I'm so excited that more are remembering it!

The surprise "shoebox" at the end of the show is what I remember most. not sure if miss mary ellen is still around, but i'll look into it.

Welcome Camille. It must be fun to write for a newspaper. I don't remember the show you and Di mention; but glad you found
common ground.
