In one of the tales, Baba yaga receives her niece on a visit and decides, of course, to eat her. Fortunately, the girl wins the magical characters that surround the ogress-house by offering them presents. The cat, dogs, gates and birches help her escape. The child also drops a towel that turns into a river and a comb that rises into a bushy forest.
Children who refuse to finish their meal can still be threatened with calling Baba yaga:"If you don't eat, she will eat you! ""
