Great Cartoons Are excellent Toys

There's a sense by which some imagination might be lost with television, sure. I'm willing to buy that argument - or at least part of it. However, there's another side to that particular argument that supporters with this theory may not be seeing, and that's the concept of toys deriving from said television shows.

A great cartoon doesn't just entertain us to make us laugh, but it can actually enhance our creativity when developed the right way. For instance, if we're discussing a cartoon where the main character gets himself into all sorts of crazy situations, the kid playing with the toy can continue to certainly use his / her imagination to pretend their toy in similar binds. Besides that make use of their imagination, however it takes problem-solving skills to get the character OUT of the messes. Add into that the antagonist or two, and we're good.

When there is good writing on the program - especially when humor can be used - there is a sense when the adventure is never finished, which can spill over into toy play. In case there are lessons taught within the show, then just maybe our kids are absorbing these lessons, are associating the characters with the themes, and will have fun with their cartoon toys in a similar fashion. It's just up to us being a parent and guardians to buy our children's activities and help them learn good play habits.

Cartoons could possibly be abused and made to act as pacifiers, but we need to remember that entertainment is entertainment and it has been a great source of imagination and creativity for as long as man has been on the planet. It's what we use it, how we limit the intake, and the way we expand about it that is the key.
