|THE NEIGHBORHOOD ARCHIVE - All Things Mister Rogers|
Daniel Tiger and his friends are pretending at school when Teacher Harriet brings a box to the play area.

As they play, Daniel make-believes that he has blasted off for the moon to find a moon rock.
Returning from "the moon," Daniel finds that O the Owl is having a hard time pretending.
Miss Elaina pretends taht the box is a jungle boat and she is the captain. With Daniel by her side, she sails down the jungle river. When they ask O the Owl to join them, he suggests that he would much rather read his book about boxes than pretend.
After some encouragement from his friends, O pretends that the box is a racecar.
