Community Kids Talk: All The Things I Can Win

Kids Talk: All The Things I Can Win

Kids talk always puts smile on my face. All the things I can win, sounds like a line from Dr. Suess books.

Living in today’s media driven world heavily targeting children, sometimes I think that reading at a young age can be dangerous. But then the sooner the better, children will discover the concept of false advertising. “Mom but my food does not look like on the picture,” my almost 7 year old told me once. “I know, that’s just the way it is,” I told him. He is slowly figuring out that what he sees on T.V. is not the same as what he holds in his hands.

Matthew is a good reader and he does not miss a thing when it comes to FREE or WIN labels on packages.

The other day he picked up a bag of cheddar cheese sticks. Something caught his eye, they are currently running Play Cheesy’s EPIC THEME PARK ADVENTURE. ‘WIN 1 OF 10 Florida Theme Park Vacations‘. The catch, you have to enter a given PIN number for a chance to win. Yes he does not want to believe yet that is it only a chance to win.

The other day Matthew insisted we input that code for him. I told him it isn’t that easy. We have to give them our email address.

He argued his case, “but Mom instructions only said, Enter this PIN number at cheestrings.ca.”

And look Mom it also said Plus, 250 Tablets Available to be Won Instantly, that’s a lot of tablets!” he added.

If life was that generous,” I added.

And that is all about ‘kids talk’ until next time.
