Why do kids like them so much? This morning I put Thomas’ bib on backwards and it had an exposed tag on it… I began giving him his breakfast food, which was banana peach raspberry puree, a stage 2 food. He was eating fine until the dogs and kitty started playing and distracted him. Then he looked down at his bib and I couldn’t get him to eat another bite for five minutes… He was mesmerized by the tag, he kept trying to grab it with his fingers, but his dexterity isn’t that great yet to always grab such a small object.
We typically cut off the tags on nearly everything of Thomas’ so we don’t have this problem, but a few of his toys still have them and what does he do? He doesn’t play with the toy, he wants the tag. Or he will play with the toy until he sees the tag and then forget about the toy entirely while he plays with the tag.
I’m sure Thomas isn’t alone in this tag fascination as his Grandma made him a blanket entirely with tags on the edges. While Thomas enjoys this blanket, a single tag currently has more appeal. I feel like I should keep a pocket full of tags on me for when he gets fussy or is unhappy… I could put a tag on something and presto! Thomas would be happy!
