THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers

Daniel's Obstacle Course

Episode 407
Title Daniel's Obstacle Course
Daniel Plays in a Gentle Way
Air Date January 8, 2019

Daniel Tiger has built an obstacle course in the living room and walks Margaret through the various challenges made from household objects. When Daniel plays too rought and Margaret struggles to keep up, she trips and falls. Dad Tiger encourages Daniel to play more gently with Margaret.

After taking Margaret through the obstacle course at a slower pace, Daniel make-believes that he's playing in an obstacle course made of clouds.

When Margaret makes her way through the obstacle course on her own, Daniel becomes excited and cheers loudly for her. Margaret is startled by the noise, but Daniel remembers that sometimes he needs to play in a gentle way.

Daniel and Margaret push Tigey through the course on a toy Trolley, but Margaret pushes too hard and Tigey falls off. Daniel and Dad show Margaret that she, too, needs to play more gently sometimes.


Strategy

  • "Sometimes you need to play the gentle way."
