Mister Rogers arrives with an infant seat and describes how it is used to carry small babies. The seat has a broken buckle which he repairs outside at the workbench before singing When a Baby Comes to Your House.

At Bob Trow's workshop, Mr. Trow has just finished making a smaller infant seat to be used with a baby doll.

In the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, Robert Troll is helping Corney put the final touches on an infant seat he has made for Prince Tuesday. The seat is delivered to the castle and King Friday marks it with the royal seal. The King spends some time playing with Prince Tuesday by making sounds and is observed from above by Lady Elaine Fairchilde who is invited to join in the play. Lady Elaine compliments King Friday on being a "pretty good father."

Back at the workshop, Bob Trow talks like Robert Troll and shows Mister Rogers some other projects he is working on including the repair of a broken rocking chair.

Returning to his house, Mister Rogers encourages viewers to play with words and sounds before he concludes by reciting a portion of Lewis Carroll's poem The Jabberwocky.
