Do you know Pippi?


Of course you've heard of the red-haired, horse-lifting, freckle-faced Pippi Longstocking, but how well do you really know her? Now's your chance to get acquainted, Philadelphia: Do You Know Pippi Longstocking?, an original new exhibition, is coming to the American Swedish Historical Museum!

The show sounds absolutely delightful, and true to Lingren's sense of humor. Kids will have the opportunity to go inside Pippi’s house and cook in her kitchen. You will also be able to test your strength by lifting Pippi’s horse, explore Pippi’s cabinet of treasures, and scrub-a-dub-dub the floor with sponges on your shoes. The exhibit will be complemented by life-sized tableaus of Ingrid Vang Nyman's beautiful, bright illustrations, and visitors will discover how Astrid Lingren influenced Swedish attitudes towards childhood. In other words, it will be like the best play date imaginable!

Do You Know Pippi Longstocking? is on view from March 23, 2014 until February 16, 2015. The American Swedish Historical Museum is located at 1900 Pattison Avenue, Philadelphia, PA.
