If you have memories of Mister Rogers, then our 3/4" thick wooden replica of his television neighborhood home will sit perfectly on your desk, shelf, windowsill or mantle to remind you (and your children) of the shows and teaching of Mister Rogers.
This is the story we printed on the back of his home:
“...Would you be mine? Could you be mine? Won’t you be my neighbor?”
Mister Rogers opened his door to all, and warmly invited each person to share their talents and ideas.
He showed us the power of kindness and compassion and would say, “You are special and so is everyone else in this world.”
Fred McFeely Rogers was born in 1928 in Latrobe, Pennsylvania. After brief stints in New York City and Canada, he returned to Pittsburgh to create Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood.
He married his college sweetheart Joanne Byrd, and they had two sons, James and John.
Since Fred’s death in 2003, his legacy continues through the life lessons he taught so many generations and the new programs touching children’s hearts today.
"You've made this day a special day, by just your being you. There's no person in the whole world like you, and I like you just the way you are." - Mister Rogers
We handcraft this in our Wooster, Ohio workshop just 130 miles west of Pittsburgh where Mister Rogers' Neighborhood lived at WQED from 1968 through 2001.
We add our black cat mascot, Casper, to every design we create. Look closely and you'll find Casper hidden just behind a bush listening to Mr. McFeely as he delivers the daily mail.
