Exhibit opening Adventures with Clifford the Big Red Dog, opens today; runs through Jan. 7, 2007. The Children's Museum, Seattle Center...
Clifford the Big Red Dog has to be big — and he is, in a 9-foot-tall plastic statue welcoming visitors to The Children’s Museum’s newest traveling exhibit, which opens today.
Inspired by the PBS Kids cartoon (itself based on author Norman Bridwell’s 44-year-old Clifford series), the interactive exhibit lets kids dig through sand for hidden treasures at T-Bone’s Beach; fill Clifford’s giant dog bowl with treats via a conveyor belt; and steer Birdwell Island’s ferry. There’s even a little tot slide at the end of Clifford’s tail for a tame version of owner Emily Elizabeth’s ride on the TV show.
Geared to preschoolers, the exhibit also features a toddler-only area with a crawl tunnel in Cleo’s Backyard.
A costumed character will make special appearances throughout today; the exhibit is open during regular museum hours through Jan. 7, 2007.
