Entertainment for a baby

Dear Reader,

Today for the first time I showed my son (Jacob) the Soviet children’s cartoon which I first saw when I was working in the Czech Republic (1999), it is a cartoon called “Nu, pogodi!” (Well, you just wait !). I can report that he found it very funny, I have no idea quite how he thinks about the world but it did seem to amuse him.

Already he has had other cultural experiences, last year in november we took him to a museum. Until then I had never considered the idea of a museum exhibition designed to appeal to children ages below two years of age. I was told by friends about a exhibition aimed at babies, when I entered the room and with my baby I found that he was overjoyed. My son had more joy from this museum visit than I normally get. In this room were a series of four things all designed to appeal to a small child. The first thing was a nest containing a range of eggs of different sizes and textures. There was a tree with leather leaves which he enjoyed playing with. Their was a climbing toy which was far too old for my son and last of all there was a water feature which he enjoyed playing with.

I have to say that the people who designed the things in the room aimed at small children did a fine job, I only wish that they would put the same items in a public place near my home !
