What has all 26 letters of the alphabet and is strong enough to stand up to the toughest of play? A set of Tuff Stuff ABC Blocks! Produced by Mattel in 1979, these oversized letter shaped blocks help little ones with their letter recognition and fine motor skills. Not only can you build a tower that reaches to the sky, you can spell it out as you build!
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 letters can you find in the museum? Can you spell your name? Or simply sing the Alphabet song together!

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.
