So many good family stories: Guy Smith told us that when he was a child, his mother would take him to see Pip the Mouse in Hess’s window. Now living in New Jersey, he and his wife, Pam, surprised their 92-year-old mother, Eleanor, with a trip to see Pip here at the Liberty Bell Museum today. Guy told us, “She is almost 92 years old and took me to see Pip the first year it was at Hess's window, when I was very young. I was in my stroller then, she in a wheelchair now. We've come full circle.” Thanks for sharing your family story with us!

“The Mouse Before Christmas” was first performed in Hess’s front window and then moved to the toy department in 1982. After Hess’s, (then owned by Bon-Ton) closed in 1996, Pip was something of an itinerant mouse, performing at the Allentown Public Library and other places and even taking at least a year off before finding a permanent home at the Liberty Bell Museum.
