I have found that my boys are very drawn to the same iconic children’s figures that I had in my youth. Sure there are some new ones like… Ummm Lightning McQueen? Seriously, we had Winnie the Pooh, The Looney Toons, Thomas the Tank Engine, etc… Come to think of it those characters were even before my time. They were my parent’s icons. My generation had The Lion King, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Transformers. When it really comes down to it does it seem like we are losing the development of these characters? Is this because the ones that were previously developed were so iconic or is it because we are starting to lose our creativity because we watch too much television. It’s all very confusing. Here’s a picture to help ease your troubled mind. Yes this is my youngest with an icon.
