Mister Rogers arrives with an instrument used to measure a person's foot and demonstrates how it is used. He goes on to show different styles of shoes in various sizes before singing I Like You As You Are.

Mrs. Tabei stops by to show her origami artwork and shows how to use paper to make a bird and a giraffe. Mr. McFeely delivers an invitation to Mrs. Tabei requesting that she visit the Neighborhood kindergarten class to talk about paper folding.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Lady Aberlin is at the factory where she picks out a rockit for a good friend who lives far away.

Meanwhile, Mr. McFeely delivers a package from Mr. Hollingsworth to Henrietta Pussycat. She is delighted to find that the package contains a new doll for her collection -- a doll from Formosa. As Lady Aberlin and X the Owl admire Henrietta's doll collection, they decide to have a street fair showcasing their various collections and talents. Worried about the well-being of her dolls at such a fair, Henrietta sings I'm Taking Care of You with Lady Aberlin and X before agreeing to be part of the event.


As Corney shows Lady Aberlin his rockits, I'm a Man Who Manufactures plays in the background.

The zip code for the Neighborhood of Make-Believe shown on the package from Mr. Hollingsworth is 15213 -- the zip code for Pittsburgh, PA.
