Hide and Seek of the Week

This week’s collections object is the Omnibot! First produced by Tomy in the mid 1980s, the Omnibot was the first of many toy robots created by the company. This remote control robot not only rolls forwards and backwards, but features a cassette tape deck and can grasp large objects in his right claw!

Put on your looking eyes and see if you can find it during your next visit! And while you are looking high and low, don’t forget to encourage curiosity by asking open-ended questions and engaging your child in the conversation. For example: What things would you make a robot do? How does a robot sound? Or simply do the robot!

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.
