Come on an adventure with us to Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, a place where everyone is equally loved, appreciated and accepted. Grab your favorite sweater, change into your most comfortable shoes. Take a spot by the television for an unforgettable story from your favorite childhood neighbor.
Mister Rogers has always held a special place in our hearts for his profound wisdom and warm musical messages of inclusion, respect and neighborliness. His voice, ever so calm and genuine, would not only explain the most perplexing questions to children and adults alike, but he also believed that every child should be appreciated just for who they are.
Mister Rogers’ captivating songs transported you, and before you knew it you were tapping your toes and singing along, too, smiling from ear to ear. He encouraged you to understand your own feelings and thoughts and appreciate why you felt the way you did. “If you could only sense how important you are to the lives of those you meet, how important you can be to the people you may never even dream of. There is something of yourself that you leave at every meeting with another person.”
Mister Rogers envisioned a neighborhood that we all wanted to visit. And through this Neighborhood of Make-Believe, we learned about the many experiences of growing up that could sometimes be overwhelming to a child. Mister Rogers took the time to explain them with warmth, sensitivity and honesty so children could confidently ask questions about difficult topics and know that they were not alone in asking them.
“It’s a beautiful day in this neighborhood, a beautiful day for a neighbor, would you be mine? Could you be mine?”
Mister Rogers’ Sweaters
There are many recognizable outfits out there, but truly iconic outfits are few and far between. When you think of a sweater, what—or who—usually comes to mind? You’re probably thinking the same as we are!
When you saw Mister Rogers’ smiling face as he stepped through the doors of his television home, you knew it was going to be a good day. He shed his coat from the grown-up world and exchanged it for a more casual, relaxed and comfortable sweater. What a great feeling to escape the real world for a little while and enjoy some quality time with friends in the Neighborhood of Make-Believe!
In a treasured holiday tradition, Fred Rogers’ mother knitted sweaters for the family, and he wore many of them throughout the series as a way of signaling to his television neighbors that this was his time with them. It’s because of this iconic outfit that we thought it would be fitting to create sweater pins.
