Laura Clark: Clifford, ‘Animal Grossology’ on Display at Discovery Cube Los Angeles
Clifford the Big Red Dog made a larger-than-life appearance this weekend at Discovery Cube Los Angeles as the hands-on museum’s latest traveling exhibits, “Adventures With Clifford the Big Red Dog” and “Animal Grossology,” settled into their latest home.
“Adventures With Clifford” now takes over the space that Thomas and Friends filled before, and the activities are just as fun for curious kids.
On display through September 7, this interactive exhibit is well-suited to little ones. Will loved the variety of activities, which included a play area called Cleo’s Backyard that offered tunnels and soft spaces to crawl; a giant dog bowl that kids could fill with stuffed dog bones; and Emily’s Backyard Theater, which lets kids choose videos and dress up as Clifford characters.
The exhibit is designed to help kids learn “Clifford’s Big Ideas”: share; play fair; have respect; work together; be responsible; believe in yourself; and more.
We even got to meet Clifford himself! But that wasn’t the only day he’ll be around to say hi. Check the website for his meet-and-greet dates.
“Animal Grossology,” also on display through September 7, gives kids a humorous and interactive look at animal digestion, blood suckers, vomit munchers and, yes, poo. Kids of all ages will enjoy the (clean!) hands-on fun, with older kids getting more info out of each exhibit.
In fact, for little kids like Will, there are activities to keep them entertained, including a faux submarine that takes kids on an underwater adventure via screens and even sports a fun slide. Will loved that, too!Kids can discover which animal poo belongs to which animal, why flies throw up on food before eating it (definitely gross), and how some frogs carry eggs in their mouths and spit out their babies once they’ve hatched. (Will loved the game that came along with this one!)
