This week’s collections object is the Smack and Yack Plush Luigi! This plush little car is based on the character from the popular 2006 Disney Pixar movie Cars. Luigi, modeled after the 1959 Fiat 500, is the owner of Casa Della Tires tire shop in the fictional town of Radiator Springs. When this plush version of Luigi is thrown or pressed, he utters several phrases from the movie.
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: Can you show me how fast a car goes? Who is your favorite Cars character? If you were a car what kind would you be?

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.
