Children are such interesting creatures. Here are some things some children just can’t get enough of. And we don’t understand why.

Straws as Imaginary Friends

“My four year old has, for the last year, been absolutely bonkers for straws. Any time anyone has a straw, she has to have it. And once she gets it she dives deep down into this world of make-believe where the straw is a snake that she befriends and invites on all kinds of adventures.”

Imaginary Friends from China

“Mine at 3 had two imaginary friends: Rose and The Boy who were both from China (we live in the US). Every day I heard the adventures of Rose and The Boy — it was amazing what his preschool mind would create.”

Gangnam Style and the Pillsbury Doughboy

“My daughter is older, she is 13 and she is obsessed with teaching herself Italian. It’s actually very impressive. She is constantly on Duolingo in her free time and has now started throwing in Italian phrases in speaking to us.”

Fascination with Hands

“Mine is probably normal for a 5 month old but his hands. He holds them up and stares at them for at least 15 minutes at a time. It’s so cute!”

Monkeys, Except Lemurs

“I don’t know if it’s ‘weird,’ but monkeys. Any form of apes, primate or monkey. Except lemurs… He hates lemurs!”

The Phantom of the Opera

“My four year old is currently obsessed with The Phantom of the Opera. He is wearing a suit, cape, and mask right now.”

Trains, Trains Everywhere

“Trains, trains everywhere. My 3yo is obsessed, we have the living room converted to a train track and have to build and rebuild everything at least once a day. Driving in the metro or with a train makes him the happiest kid, even better if he has some toy-train along with him and he wants to go to the Train-museum like every day. It’s been like this for a good year now.”

How It’s Made

“My 3 year old is obsessed with the show how’s it’s made. It’s all he wants to watch. I find it so weird but at least it’s not boring to watch.”

Traffic Lights

“My 2 1/2 yr old is obsessed with traffic lights. Every time we’re out we have to stop and stare at every single one. We went to a kid’s museum and they had one on the ground and we spent over an hr with it. Forget the slides and other toys, it was all about this traffic light.”
