Visitor Tips and News About Eddie, World's Biggest Kid - EdVenture
Promoted as the World's Biggest Kid, Eddie stands 40-foot high and weighs 17.5 tons. He's the cornerstone of Columbia's Edventure Children's museum. Eddie is completely hands-on, allowing children and adults to climb through his heart, brain and stomach, and even slide out of his intestines.
I was first introduced to this larger-than-life boy on a trip to visit my husband, who was stationed at Ft. Jackson, SC before being deployed overseas. I visited the local visitors bureau in Columbia, and the ladies there gave this exhibit top marks. You need several hours to see it all -- a real welcome change from having to tell your kids "no, don't touch" everywhere you go.[Amanda Nuckoles, 04/30/2006]
