The Toughlings

You Don't Have to Be Big to Be Strong

Our patients prove this every day. However, as obvious as their strength is to us, it's not always obvious to them. 

That's where The Toughlings come in. 

With the help of the artists behind The OctonautsTM, a popular children’s book series and television program, this small but tough team of animals was developed to help our kids know that "You Don't Have to Be Big to Be Strong." 

You can find The Toughlings and their worlds on the street and plaza levels of Tufts Children's and in the elevator banks on most floors.
