Video Killed the Radio Star
Now Noah is obsessed with Hamataro. Which, if you have deprived yourself, and you've never seen this animated gem of a show...well, let me fill you in (this is sarcasm). It's a Japanese Anime series about a group of hampsters who build their own clubhouse! Ooh! And they fool their humans by pretending that they hang out in their cages all day. The music is why Noah loves it..."It's Hamtaro time...Hamtaro time...little hampsters, big adventures, Hamtaro!" Imagine those lyrics set to a blaring techno tune. Oh Joy. Today, Noah is taking his toy hampster to show and tell...his toy hampster is named Hamtaro too, of course.
Here's hope: Noah loves finding out how things work. He loves The Magic School Bus books because they often go inside things (bodies, cars, sewage systems)...and I found a Magic School Bus dvd at the library in which Ms. Frizzle and the class go to Space...Noah is watching it now and letting me know that they are on another planet now...Pluto...and it's cold and dark there! Yep, he's only 3, but thanks to tv, he knows about Pluto...unfortunately, this episode of the MSB was made before Pluto was demoted to the status of non-planet! Ughh! How to explain that controversy to Noah? ; )
