Over the holidays, it is always our hope to have the company of our four preschool grandchildren. And after they leave, it is always our hope to someday get all of our electronics working again.
There is something about tiny persons and LCD panels that is just irresistible. In our home, alas, the electronics all seem to be located at perfect toddler eye level. I always tape covers over the CD player, amplifier, and DVD player, of course, but for the tots this just acts as a flashing neon beacon that there is something Really Neat underneath. Pretty much everything we listened to on our CD player for weeks after they left was really heavy on the bass. The lights on the DVD player still blink continuously.
