Upon his arrival, Mister Rogers changes into an apron rather than one of his usual sweaters. Having recently visited the lumber yard, he has purchased some pieces of wood which he plans to make into building blocks. With a small splinter in his finger, Mister Rogers goes to the kitchen and removes the splinter with a pair of tweezers. He then sings I Did Too.

In the back yard, Mister Rogers is sanding the blocks when Bob Trow stops by with a drawing he made of King Friday's castle. Using some glue and one of Mister Rogers' blocks, Mr. Trow mounts the drawing. Mister Rogers has the idea to send the mounted drawing as a present for the newborn Prince Tuesday.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, gifts for the Prince are arriving from all over the world while Henrietta Pussycat is feeling tired as a result of her duties as nurse. Lady Elaine is jealous of the many presents being delivered for Prince Tuesday and insists on taking some to the Museum-Go-Round. Joey Hollingsworth arrives with a gift for the Prince as well as one for everyone else in the Neighborhood -- including Lady Elaine. The gift from Mr. Hollingsworth distracts Lady Elaine from her jealousy.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers talks about the lonely feelings that Lady Elaine might have been feeling. He concludes by singing A Lonely Kind of Thing.
