This 2,000 square-foot multimedia exhibit is sponsored nationally by Indianapolis-based Delta Faucet Company and inspired by HIT Entertainment’s top-rated television series, Bob the Builder – Project: Build It. It will replicate elements from Bob the Builder’s world in Sunflower Valley, inviting exploration, inspiring teamwork and bringing environmentally friendly building themes to life for children and families.
The Bob the Builder – Project: Build It traveling museum exhibit will invite families to spend time in Sunflower Valley with Bob the Builder, Wendy and the rest of the can-do crew. Children can practice their own fixing with kid-smart activities that build up their can-do attitudes and encourage them to be an active part of Bob the Builder – Project: Build It. Families can also work together to install new parts to sinks in Bob the Builder’s mobile home and in his building workshop, and learn about water conservation, courtesy of exhibit presenter Delta Faucet Company.
The nuts and bolts of the exhibit:
Meet the Can-Do Crew – Construct an afternoon of activity — build memories and snap photos with a life-sized, three-dimensional Bob the Builder and Benny, the specialist digger.
Bob’s Mobile Home – See Bob the Builder’s blueprint for success as children explore their favorite builder’s mobile home. Children can be part of the crew and help fix the drip coming from Bob the Builder’s sink or watch video clips from the popular series.
Build the Machine Shelter – Be part of the team, laying stones in the walls of the machine team’s shelter and building stalls for Roley, Scoop, Benny, Muck and Scrambler to sleep.
Drive a Machine – Let’s Scram! Rock and roll with Roley the Steamroller and dig up fun with Scoop the Digger!
Talkie Talkie – This problem-solving crew has a lot to say and each member has a special phrase. View a picture of each team member and push a button to hear their famous catch phrases, “No prob, Bob” or “Let’s rock and roll!”
Wendy’s Caravan – Wendy needs some help from the team to refurbish and decorate her caravan and plant beautiful flowers.
Water Pump – Farmer Pickles isn’t the only one in Sunflower Valley that knows that water conservation is important. Children can explore the interactive water pump station, learn important messages about water conservation and help to bring water to Sunflower Valley.
