Mister Rogers laughs when he accidentally puts his shoes on the wrong feet as he changes into his sneakers. Using his imagaination, he comes up with many uses for an empty shoe box. Taking out tape and a pair of scissors, Mister Rogers decides to use his shoe box to make a pretend bed before he sings You Are Special.

Andrea Bray and her daughter Beth stop by with a collection of boxes decorated in a variety of ways by children. Mister Rogers takes Beth to the trolley track to show how it works. The Brays leave to meet Mr. Bray at his shoe store. Mister Rogers shows a short film clip of Beth making a bed for her doll out of a box given to her by her father.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Handyman Negri is building a crib at the castle and is asked to escort Queen Sara to Westwood for an appointment with Dr. Frogg.

Back at the house, Mister Rogers talks about King Friday needing to stay at the castle to do his kingly work. After mentioning how some fathers work at home and other work outside the home, he sings I'd Like To Be Just Like Mom and Dad. Mister Rogers starts to conclude for the day but is surprised when Joe Negri stops by to demonstrate his new pair of tap shoes.
