NORWALK, Conn. -- The Stepping Stones Museum for Children in Norwalk recently made a cuddly donation of Boo Zoo plush toys to brighten the days of children staying at Stamford Hospital.

Robert Townes, Director of Community Advocacy at Stepping Stones Museum for Children, Jennifer Becker, Manager of Grants at the Norwalk-based children’s museum, and Cynthia Brandt, a Business Development Consultant at Stepping Stones, delivered 53 BooZoo plush toys to Stamford Hospital’s Pediatric Emergency and Pediatric Departments.

The stuffed animals, donated by museum visitors, supporters and staff, were given to children who spent the holidays in the hospital.

Developed by Stepping Stones as a mascot for its early childhood literacy initiative, BooZoo is an adorable, lab/beagle mix toy puppy who lives in TotTown, an exhibit at the museum.
