I know. Toys would be boring to an adult. It’s not designed for us, duh.
But, we have to interact with them (and I don’t mean ‘disappearing’ that obnoxious noisy toy your well-meaning parents gave to your child). When I sit down to play with my toddler, I find myself wishing his toys could speak (yeah I may have watched Toy Story a few days ago), because gee whiz, after 5 minutes, I’m wondering why HE isn’t bored with them.
Which makes me a really bad play mate. I find my attention wandering, eyes glazing over, while my mind frantically works out a blog post to write about boring toys.
And all this time, my mouth is saying meaningless things like, wow, look at that amazing thing you built with your wooden blocks. Or, yes, let’s push your Caterpillar truck up and down the corridor for the next 20 minutes while Mama’s mind numbs over.
Completely unrelated, I find myself watching Blue’s Clues long after the toddler has lost interest (he’s over there playing with blocks, again).
And I wonder why of all the characters in Blue’s Clues, why is Blue the only one who doesn’t speak? (OK, Magenta, the other dog character doesn’t either but she doesn’t appear much). If Periwinkle the Cat can, why not Blue? If the side table can, why not Blue? If the postbox can, why not Blue? Heck, the salt and pepper shakers can (Mr Salt and Mrs Pepper to you!), why not Blue?
WHY ON EARTH DO I THINK SO MUCH ABOUT THIS DAMN SHOW??
Do toys bore you? What children’s show do you secretly watch?
I realize it’s not Saturday yet (which is when Kimberly’s linky opens), far from it for some of you. But whatevs. I love Kimberly, I want to link up, but I don’t blog on weekends, so there.
