Hide and Seek of the Week

This week’s Collections object is a pair of Hustler Speed King Roller Skates! These metal skates used leather ankle straps and a skate key to size the skate to fit the skater’s shoe size. Manufactured by the Frantz Manufacturing Co. from the late 1930s to the early 1970s, Hustler Speed King Roller Skates were sold in large department stores across the country and were one of the leading brands of roller skates.

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.
