Children's Hospital #3

I mentioned Children's Hospital's "star-studded" staircase in my posts Monday and yesterday, and I'm pleased to show it to you today.  Rising from the first floor to the second floor, the staircase swirls and is lined with a metal ribbon with stars cut out of it.  My photo doesn't do it justice, but it is really a lovely staircase.


This cheerful and colorful piece of art is on one of the walls near administrative offices on the second floor.  The two boxes hold sheets of puzzles and coloring pages with which kids can play while the adults take care of business.

Also in the lobby of the second floor is a working train set that kids (and adults) can watch and play with.  There are three trains on three tracks on three levels.  You can push the buttons to make the trains go around the tracks.  The entire set is behind plexiglass to protect it.

This whole hospital is really nice. Do you volunteer there?

Chris said...

I do not volunteer there, but I did donate tons of stuff to them before and after I closed the store. At one point, I decided to get rid of the rolls of stickers I ha in the store, so I sent all of them - and there were more than 300 rolls - as well as paper, markers, embellishments, etc. so the kids and their parents could use them. I figured it was better they go to kids who would enjoy them than just donate them anywhere.

It is a grand looking staircase. Like Jim, I also like the train. I bet the adults like the train more than the kids.

Chris said...

Well, I can tell you that two adults in particular (my husband and I) really enjoyed it!

The model train place is amazing. What a beautiful place.

Love the choo-choo train in the lobby. Brilliant idea. If that doesn't cheer the kids up, nothing will.
