Daniel Tiger visits the castle to play with Prince Wednesday. King Friday gives his son a purple rock for his rock collection. In his room, Prince Wednesday has many fun things including his rock collection. He mentions that he would like to have a gold rock.

As Daniel looks around Prince Wednesday's room, he finds many things he is interested in. Unfortunately, Prince Wednesday does not like to play with some things fearing that they might get broken. As a result, it is difficult for them to play explorer and King Friday has to remind them that playing together is what is important -- not necessarily what they do.

When Daniel finds a treasure box, the picture inside is of himself and Prince Wednesday. They make believe that they are on a real treasure hunt.

Outside in the castle garden, they find more treasures such as a plate of fruit, a frog, and a golden rock! Prince Wednesday decides that Daniel should have the rock to start his own collection.

Daniel Tiger and Prince Wednesday sing about the joy they find in playing together.


  • "A friend just wants to play with you."
