|See? Even in the 80s, girls played video games (;|
But my little boys have grown up with computer learning games. They were using Nick Jr., Fisher Price, and PBS as early as 2 and just goofing around on the computer almost as soon as they could sit.
|My youngest, playing on Daddy's computer, before he was 2.|
And periodically, the sounds of explosions and lightning and battle were punctuated by cries of, "Pause!" like they were playing a video game (:
I knew instantly that my boys were pretending to play Star Wars: The Force Unleashed.
|Ergo all the lightning sound effects and light related toys...|
He was in his Sonic Unleashed Phase.
He even drew about it (:
|"It's Sonic Unleashed running around, Momma!" (Yup, I'm the Mom that writes that sort of quote down on the back of the art work with the date so we'll always remember it.)|
It makes me wonder how different imaginary play will be by the time my children are old enough to have children.
