Bubble Girl, our museum mascot, will share some of her favorite items from the museum gift shop during the holiday season. The store is open every day until 5 p.m. and can be reached by calling 503-371-3631.
The museum store offers a variety of Melissa & Doug wooden puzzles, including the one pictured at left. It's not just a puzzle; the chunky pieces make great stand-alone toys that can fuel hours of creative play. This is a favorite pick among staff members for toddlers. Though the packaging says the puzzle is best for ages 2 and up, children as young as one have enjoyed playing with this toy. The puzzle is available in several styles, including sea creatures, insects, safair animals, dinosaurs, and pets.
