Thing 1 and Thing 2 are twin brothers that appeared in the book The Cat in the Hat by Dr. Seuss published in 1957. The sculpture is located at he newly opened (June 2017) Amazing World of Dr. Seuss Museum at the the Quadrangle, 21 Edwards St., Springfield, MA.
Thing 1 and Thing 2 were carried in a box into the home of Conrad and Sally. When they were released they created a great deal of mischief by flying kites in the house which knocked down everything in they bumped into. Eventually, Conrad was able to capture Thing 1 and Thing 2 using a net and the Cat in the Hat returned them to their box.
