|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
Mister Rogers arrives with a play figure family. Just as he is setting up a house for them on the floor, he receives a letter from Mrs. Lawver inviting him to visit and see her doll collection.
After singing Let's Be Together Today, Mister Rogers visits Mrs. Lawver who shares her collection of antique dolls from around the world.
In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Bob Dog and Lady Aberlin wait with Dr. Bill Platypus for the arrival of his first lesson from pediatrician school. When it finally arrives, the lesson suggests that Dr. Bill get a practice baby doll -- likely to be used in a future lesson. Luckily, Lady Elaine Fairchilde is having a special on dolls at the Museum-Go-Round. After showing a fast slide show of the many dolls she has to offer, Lady Elaine is able to provide Dr. Bill with a doll.
Back at the house, Mister Rogers talks about different ways that people play with dolls before Betty Aberlin stops by with a tiny doll made of yarn. She borrows the play figure family as she goes to her theater.
