PHILADELPHIA (AP) - A Philadelphia museum has received a musical
gift for children and "Big" kids alike.
The 16-foot piano Tom Hanks walked on in his 1988 film "Big"
will be on display next month at the city's Please Touch Museum.
The instrument is a gift to the children's museum from a couple
in suburban Merion who bought it after the movie's release.
In the movie, Hanks and actor Robert Loggia jump on the giant
piano and play a duet of tunes that included "Chopsticks."
It was built in Philadelphia by Remo Saraceni who called his
invention a Walking Piano.
