Il lupo mangia frutta (Italy)

Il lupo mangia frutta (Fruit Eater Wolf) is a children’s game that is played by a group. It is similar to musical chairs. One child plays the wolf and stands to one side. The other children play fruits and stand in a line in front of him. The fruit think of the name of a fruit. The wolf says “toc toc” (to indicate knocking). The fruits answer “who is it?” The wolf names himself “I am the wold mangia frutta!” Children ask him what fruit he wants. The wolf then names a fruit and the children who were that fruit run around the line of “fruits” to get back to their spot in line without being eaten by the wolf. If the wolf catches one of the fruits, that child becomes the new wolf.
