Mister Rogers arrives with a small elephant carved out of wood. Through a film, he remembers a time he recently visited a much larger wooden elephant named Lucy. Lucy is a structure built in the shape of an elephant which Mister Rogers goes inside and climbs to the top.
After the film, Mister Rogers visits the Neighborhood toy lending library where he meets Barbara Liftman. Ms. Liftman explains the library's procedure for sharing toys with patrons and also discusses some of the library's playful features. Mister Rogers takes some time to look inside a doll house before Ms. Liftman concludes the visit by giving him a toy catalog to take home.
In the Neighborhood of Make-Belive, Prince Tuesday is having a difficult time learning to ride his bicycle. With a little help from Handyman Negri, Prince Tuesday finds some encouragement and wants to share his excitement with Ana Platypus. At the clock, Prince Tuesday offers to let Ana ride his bicycle -- an offer she eagerly accepts.
At the Museum-Go-Round, the master key is used to open the locked door but all that is found inside is an empty box. Upon closer examination, however, Neighbor Aber finds a penny in the bottom of the box. When Handyman Negri flips the coin into the air, everyone is excited to find that it temporarily turns into a somersaulting elephant. With the locked room now open, Lady Elaine decides that it should be cleaned and used as a play room.
Back at the house, Mister Rogers talks about the importance of playing and sings I'm Proud of You.
