Children can work together to fill Clifford’s big dog bowl and gain self-confidence on stage with Clifford and his pals.

Clifford is going great gangbusters. The costumed character appearances are a HUGE hit. Our only problem is in planning a route through the museum that allows Clifford to get to relatively open spaces before he’s surrounded by so many kids that he can’t move. You know, that’s a great problem to have. It’ll be a great exhibit for us this summer.

Kids are flipping out left and right, they love it! A toddler affixed himself to Clifford’s leg with a great big hug. That sentiment has prevailed since the exhibit has been open, and children seem to really be enjoying themselves.
