With February vacation week coming to at end, Ruff Ruffman wanted to thank all of his Junior Detectives for working so hard to solve the Case of the Roaming Gnome. By analyzing handwriting, comparing evidence, unscrambling numbers, winding through mazes, and using careful identification skills, the children caught the culprit and Ruff was able to safely return his gnome back to his garden!
On behalf of Ruff and the entire Children’s Museum, special thanks go out to Steve Bennett of the State Police, Officer Tara Kennedy and her dog, Apache of the Beagle Brigade,the FBI, and New York Life, who provided free child ID kits for over 250 children! Together, these very important organizations gave us lessons on how to solve clues like a real professional.
The Children’s Museum was hopping on Sunday! We welcomed a special furry guest who took pictures with the children, while introducing her new movie, “Hop!”
“Blending state of the art animation with live action, Hop is a comedy about E.B. (voiced by Russell Brand), the teenage son of the Easter Bunny. On the eve of taking over the family business, E.B. leaves for Hollywood in pursuit of his dream of becoming a drummer. He encounters Fred (James Marsden), an out-of-work slacker with his own lofty goals, who accidentally hits E.B. with his car. Feigning injury, E.B. manipulates Fred into providing him shelter, and Fred finds himself with the world’s worst houseguest."
The film is helmed by Tim Hill, director of the blockbuster Alvin and the Chipmunks and produced by Chris Meledandri’s Illumination Entertainment (Despicable Me).”
