Pop! Pop! Pop! What’s that sound? It’s Popoids! They may look like they are from outer space, but these bendable guys are straight from earth circa the 1980s! Released by Tomy in 1984, Popoids construction sets included straw-like pieces that made a popping noise when bent or stretched.
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 make a popping sound? How many different ways can you bend and stretch?

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.
