Going through old images on ThingsThatWeDo.com and I come across umpteen images of various Transformers characters.
Ah…Transformers… more than meets the eye indeed.
When I was a kid, there were a ton of children’s cartoons that I loved to watch. I may be dating myself but I still remember watching shows like Thundercats, Voltron, and yep, Transformers. The story lines were action packed and intense. Fast forward to 2015 and Transfomers are still a hot topic for kids.
A few years back, my daughter was quite enthralled by Transformers. She watched the first Transformers movie and was then hooked on all the different characters. She watched a few of the recent TV episodes and even a few from my childhood days. She read Transformers books, had Transformers toys, and even opted for a Transformers birthday cake.
Children are children first. Boy or girl, all children love to play and learn through play. Why limit their creative capacity by categorizing toys as ‘for boys’ or ‘for girls’? My my, how quickly time flies. Transformers are now a distant memory in our home and while she kept all her Bumblebees, Arcees, and Optimus Primes, she’s moved on to other interests (The Mysterious Benedict Society, anyone?). Some days, it’s puffy paint in neon colours. Other days, it’s her rock collection.
Whatever it is, there’s always so much to learn and so much to appreciate.
Yep, this is a good Sunday.
