Daniel and Miss Elaina Play Rocketship

Episode 106
Title Daniel and Miss Elaina Play Rocketship
Daniel Plays at the Castle
Air Date September 7, 2012
 

Daniel Tiger is playing at the Museum-Go-Round with Miss Elaina. Pretending they are astronauts, they use Miss Elaina's pretend telescope to look at all of the space decorations in her room. As they're playing, the telescope is damaged which upsets Miss Elaina. Her mother comes in to remind her that it does not matter what toys they play with, "a friend just wants to play with you."

Daniel and Miss Elaina continue playing astronaut and use their hands as pretend telescopes. They board Miss Elaina's cardboard rocket and make-believe that it is a real rocketship. When the rocket rolls to its side, one of the wings is broken. Again, Miss Elaina has to be reminded that friends just want to play with her. They decide to pretend the rocket is a space boat instead.

Daniel Tiger tells Miss Elaina how much he enjoys playing with her and they sing together about finding pleasure in each other's company -- no matter what they are doing.


Strategy

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