The Paley Center for Media hosts two days of interactive experiences and immersive attractions from the exciting worlds of media, sports, gaming, and entertainment. 

Family-focused fun includes:

  • Get your picture taken at Blue's Clues & You! and on the actual Santiago of the Seas Pirate ship. Kids can also get Slimed ... and have the Slime of their life at Nickelodeon's truly interactive exhibit.
  • Play with Hasbro’s most popular games and toys, including oversized versions of Operation and Connect 4 games, and a giant Nerf blaster zone where people of all ages can get active and unleash the play with NERF blasters. Plus: Hasbro presents screenings of Peppa Pig, My Little Pony: Make Your Mark, and a special advance first-look trailer of Transformers EarthSpark.
  • Watch episodes from the second half of Season 1 of Mattel’s Barbie: It Takes Two, on the Big Screen at PaleyWKND! Fans who attend the screening also receive a free Barbie doll (while supplies last).
  • Bring your favorite American Girl doll to the Paley and enjoy exclusive, character-themed D.I.Y crafting experiences, American Girl prize giveaways, and more.
  • Maile Carpenter, the author of Food Network Magazine’s bestselling Recipe-a-Day Kids Cookbook, hosts demos, tastings, and prizes. Learn easy techniques for young chefs to create fun food at home, including leaf cookies and a veggie plate that looks like a garden.
  • Mo Rocca and Young Inventors take over the PaleyWKND Main Stage, showcasing change-makers creating solutions for real needs in our communities.
  • Put your MLB baseball athleticism to the test! Show off your swing and fielding skills and play ball in special MLB batting and fielding cages. Along with giveaways, MLB guests and talent are on hand for surprise appearances and meet-and-greets.
  • Get your hoop on courtesy of the NBA and WNBA at PaleyWKND. Two basketball courts right on 52nd street immerse kids and families in the fun of honing their dribbling, passing, and shooting skills alongside members of the NBA family during Jr. NBA Basketball Clinics.
