Is leaving your one year old to sit in front of the washing machine - as bad as leaving him to sit in front of the TV?????

Ha ha This is kind of a joke, but he loves watching my front loader go around.... What the?

Ha ha, my DS has the same fascination with the clothes dryer.

I'm sure it's not harmful to their mental development.

My 9mth old is the same...I have to admit to sticking a load on I didn't really need to do at times so that he is occupied and I can get stuff done Tounge1.gif He is mesmerised by it...

I 'may' have been known to let audible giggles of delight out at times when watching the big dryers in the laundromat spinning around...

Your son sounds very advanced OP!

No, I count it as one of those 'learning about how the world works' times. I could happily sit and watch it as well

Top loaders are fun to sit on during the spin cycle
