Media and Memory
When I was little I just couldn’t do without Thomas the Tank Engine. Playing or watching anything else would not satisfy me at all. The 4 year old action was exactly what I needed from Thomas. It was the most fun toy and the best TV show ever. So much intensity for my little brain was so incomprehensibly awesome. It so many possibilities. You could build a new track every single day and never get bored. While I had it I was the happiest toddler in the universe it was on my brain all the time. That’s why I’ve remembered it for so long. It is forever with me. Without it my childhood wouldn’t have been the same.
