This allows him to go on wild and amazing adventures that he could not do as a tall person. All throughout each of his adventures, the story is told by a narrator.

This magical cap also allows Grandpa to have the ability to jump much farther than he ever could before, and it also helps him to run extremely fast.

When Grandpa shrinks, he has the ability to ride and make Gordon fly like a true Seagull. Also, when Grandpa shrinks down to such a small size he can make the toy cars, planes, and trains all run and drive as if they were real. They even make all of the engine sounds like real life vehicles.
