Humpty Dumpty is one of the best known English Nursery Rhymes, with the most common text being:

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
All the king's horses and all the king's men
Couldn't put Humpty together again.

A Lori Mitchell design for ESC. Humpty Dumpty is a well known nursery rhyme figure that takes a tumble off a wall, which Lori Mitchell accurately displays. The Humpty Dumpty nursery rhyme has origins dating back to 1797. According to an English dictionary, "the term 'humpty dumpty' referred to a drink of brandy boiled with ale in the seventeenth century. The riddle probably exploited, for misdirection, the fact that 'humpty dumpty' was also eighteenth-century slang for a short and clumsy person." It's not hard to picture humpty dumpty as a lush who fell from a wall, rather than the child friendly egg we know and love. Lori Mitchell's version would be perfect for anyone that collects nursery rhyme figures! Start a collection of these Lori Mitchell nursery rhyme figures for yourself or to gift to a young child!
