Hide and Seek of the Week

This week's Collections object is a set of Kindergarten Building Blocks!

These embossed ABC blocks were first patented on June 20, 1876 by the Hyatt Brothers of Albany, New York. Manufactured by The Embossing Company, each wooden block featured a slightly raised image, number or letter on each side.

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.
