Hide and Seek of the Week

What has all the colors of the rainbow and is always right side up? The Playskool Caterpillar pull toy! This simple wooden pull toy was created by Playskool in 1951. And do you know how much it cost way back then? Only $1.50! That’s right, only six quarters! If you look hard enough, you will find this colorful little guy curled up and hiding amongst ABC blocks and Snoopy.

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’s your favorite color? Can you show me how a caterpillar crawls? Where do you think caterpillar’s live?
