The snug kit at Eureka!

Snug is finding its way into museums around the world.

* Eureka! in Halifax have SNUG permanently outside their entrance for children and adults to play with before and after visiting the museum.

* Chicago Children's Museum have recently purchased SNUG as the centre-piece of their new exhibition called 'Move' which is due to open in Jan 2010. They are in the process of developing an educational program and resources around SNUG for their visitors (adults and children).

* Dr Fraser Brown from Leeds Met University will be researching how Snug is used and perceived by children, parents, teachers and museum staff and how it might be used to enhance the museum experience.

* Laboral Centro de Arte y Creation Industrial in Gijon, Spain are exhibiting SNUG from Oct 2nd - Dec 7th in an exhibition called 'Mediateca Expandida : Arcadia' that looks at games as strategy and language in contemporary culture.
