Hide and Seek of the Week

This week's Collections object is a Mechanical Aquaplane! This tin lithograph wind-up airplane with pontoons was produced by J. Chein & Co. in 1932. When the wind-up key on top of the plane was turned, the plane’s large yellow propeller would spin around and around!

Put on your looking eyes and see if you can find it during your next visit! For more info about Hide and Seek of the Week, click here.

We're all about learning through play.

Join Pinky, one of Please Touch Museum's resident puppets, on an inside look into all the fun, educational things happening at Philly's Children's Museum. This blog is not just about what we do at the museum, but about the educational philosophy behind why we do what we do.
