Weebles Coast to Coast at the Mayborn

If your child loves interactive pretend play, they will love the Weebles Coast to Coast exhibit at the Mayborn.  My kindergardener played there for hours and didn't want to leave when it was time to go home.

There are hands on exhibits for all 50 states.  Here are a few of them.

Kids can take a balllon ride, which has a picture in the floor
which shows them going up or down as they pull the cord!
This was a favorite with my son.

They can also try out being a part of the pin crew for the 
Indianapolis 500.

The lights of this pop art exhibit show different colors depending on how many times you
press them.  A whole wall full of glowing buttons--what kid wouldn't love that?

There's a cave to explore.

There's a spot to try out camping in the
Appalachian Mountains.

Or, take a fun drive down the California coast.

All and all I was really impressed with this exhibit.  Little kids will love it.  It really gives them a great chance to pretend and use their imagination.  Older kids may not enjoy it as much.  

This exhibit goes on through May 4th, so make sure to take it in while you can!  Learn more at The Mayborn Musuem website.


  1. I'm 30 and this looks like something even I'd enjoy!

    1. I'm nearly 40 and I did too. :-) Unfortunately my older boys are in that "I don't do little kid stuff" stage and didn't want to go.
