"The Children's Museum is excited to create and debut Bob the Builder's first traveling exhibit, offering children a learning experience that encourages Bob the Builder's signature can-do attitude, problem solving skills and teamwork," said Dr. Jeffrey H. Patchen, president and CEO of The Children's Museum of Indianapolis. "Following the grand opening, Bob the Builder - Project: Build It sponsored by Delta will begin its national tour at The Children's Museum of Manhattan in New York and The Royal Alberta Museum in Edmonton, Canada, and it will visit 30 venues during the next five years." "This is a great opportunity to reach the community with important messages about conservation, as well as what goes into building and maintaining a home," said Reinhard Metzger, president of Delta Faucet Company. "Bob the Builder is a great partner for the Delta brand because he embodies the combination of a can-do attitude and concern for the environment that our company was built upon. We are pleased to partner with The Children's Museum to help educate young visitors on these ideas." "We are thrilled to work with The Children's Museum of Indianapolis, a premiere provider of exhibits that are interactive and educational for visitors of all ages," said Jamie Cygielman, Senior Vice President, Consumer Products, HIT Entertainment. "Their dedication to providing young children with high-quality, hands-on, educational events, makes them the perfect partner to bring Bob the Builder - Project: Build It to life." The Bob the Builder - Project: Build It traveling museum exhibit will invite families to spend time in Sunflower Valley with Bob the Builder, Wendy and the rest of the can-do crew. Children can practice their own fixing with kid-smart activities that build up their can-do attitudes and encourage them to be an active part of Bob the Builder - Project: Build It. Families can also work together to install new parts to sinks in Bob the Builder's mobile home and in his building workshop, and learn about water conservation, courtesy of exhibit presenter Delta Faucet Company.
