Move Over Elmo, There's a New Mouse In Town

To date, our little one has pretty much been infatuated with Elmo and the Sesame Street crowd (that, and slightly off Indian TV). But, over the last couple weeks, his world has expanded. It's official, our little guy is now a Mickey Mouse man.

His gateway drug to Disney: a sing along CD with Mickey Mouse and friends that my mother-in-law bought him. What makes the CD special, is the fact that it's personalized. Integrated in with the music and dialog is his name, which he just finds thrilling.

Literally, the first thing he asked for this morning when I went into his room, was to listen to this CD (the request sounds something like: "mooooosic puhleees"). And how could I argue? Any activity that keeps him entertained for 30'ish minutes is a winner in my book.

A tiny part of me does think that having his name injected in there doesn't exactly teach him the best lesson (that he's the center of the universe). But, at 20 months, I say, let the boy enjoy. And like any other media, moderation is key.
