My son has been obsessed with washing machines ever since he was an infant. He used to build a washing machine out of a small garbage can and a long candle, and throw all our clothes in it and spin it. And anytime we go over to someone's house he has to check out their washing machine. He loves to watch washing machine videos and he loves to help with laundry. He loves to spin in circles and pretend he's a washing machine. He recently asked my friend: "Does you washing machine have an agitator?" She was floored -- she didn't even know what an agitator was!
I suppose this is good. Our laundry is always done!
But I am wondering if this is common. Is there is some sort of strange washing machine phenomenon for kids? We posted a video of our son with a toy washing machine about a year ago, and the video went semi-viral. It's a cute video, but I didn't think it would be particularly interesting to anyone else. But it has like 22,000 hits.
Does anyone else have a washing machine-obsessed child?
