I’ve been buying a lot of the characters VCDs and DVDs lately for Darrius as I want to expose him to a few more characters. One day, I was in Jusco QBM and found this compilation of a few famous characters which includes Thomas and Friends, Barney, Kipper, Pingu and Rubbadubbers. On the cover it said ‘2 hours of bumper fun’ which is exactly what I’ll need when I am doing my cupcakes.
It comes in 2 CDs so I supposed each will last about an hour. I played it for Darrius once I reached home and he was happy to see Thomas and Friends as the first show from the CD. Next was Barney. He watched for a while and he came to me.
And the following conversation took place…
Me: Why??? YOu don’t want to watch the new CD?
Darrius: I don’t like..
Me: Why don’t like??? There’s Thomas and Friends wor…
Darrius: Not nice one…
Me: Which one not nice?
Darrius: Barney lor. I don’t like Barney.
Me: But after Barney have other cute cartoons wor…
Darrius: I don’t like! (My heart was broken… and I can see my $$$ go into the drain)
On another day I played it again for him and amazingly he finished the entire CD but he came to tell me later on that he don’t like Barney and the ‘dog-dog’ one. I supposed that was Kipper. That CD has been in cold storage since then and he refused to let me put them on for him. I did not know he dislike Barney that much as I saw him holding and hugging Barney plush toy when we were in TRUS sometimes.
Kids are weird aren’t they? 😐
