Strategy "Keep trying. You'll get better."
 

Daniel Tiger and his friends are playing at the park with Prince Tuesday -- working on hopping on one foot. When Prince Tuesday offers some good advice -- keep trying, you'll get better -- Daniel realizes that the more he hops, the better he gets.

Prince Tuesday talks about practicing baseball before Daniel make-believes that he himself is a great baseball player.

Together with Prince Tuesday, Daniel and his friends play animal ball -- a game made up by Miss Elaina involving animal sounds and catching a ball. When the ball is tossed to Daniel, he has a hard time catching it and is encouraged by Prince Tuesday to keep trying. With a little practice, he is able to catch the ball.

Celebrating his ability to catch the ball, Daniel hops on one foot and finds that Miss Elaina has trouble hopping. He encourages her to keep trying and with practice, she gets better.

Notes

  • When Daniel make-believes that he is a baseball player, his uniform resembles that of the Pittsburgh Pirates. Additionally, the view behind Daniel is remarkably similar to the view seen at Pittsburgh's PNC Park.
