Daniel Tiger goes to school and joins his friends in the play corner. After helping Katerina Kittycat build a wall with blocks, Daniel Tiger plays house with her. Moments later, Prince Wednesday stomps through the play corner pretending to be a dinosaur. Concerned that he will wake the baby in her pretend family, Katerina declares that there is no place in playing house for a dinosaur.

Prince Wednesday is sad and insists on being a dinosaur. Sharing his feelings with Teacher Harriet, Prince Wednesday and the other children are encouraged to find a way to play together. The friends quickly decide that Prince Wednesday can be a dinosaur -- a quiet one.

Back to playing house, Daniel Tiger make-believes that the house is a castle before Prince Wednesday accidentally knocks over the block wall. Katerina Kittycat is sad when it falls down but the children find a way to play together as they rebuild the wall.

Everyone sings a song about sharing talents and playing together before Prince Wednesday pretends to be a friendly dinosaur in a zoo.
