The Disney figures are kept in a locked glass case on the second floor, easy for the children to see but out of reach of eager hands, Sanchez said. The day Sanchez went to see them, she said kids kept coming up to the display case and pointing at it.
But then, so were many adults, she added.
In addition to wanting to delight young visitors, Sanchez had a second reason for donating the Disney figures. It's part of her new commitment to find ways to practice kindness, Next up on her list, Sanchez, a landscaper, is hoping to install a butterfly garden at the museum.
Such a garden could teach children so many things, Sanchez said, such as the relationship between humans and plants, according to a news release from the museum.
"Like patience and connection and thinking outside yourself," Sanchez said.
