WHAT are some of your favourite cartoons? Do you like to watch TV programmes like Phineas And Ferb, Monster High, Ninjago or Sofia The First?
Children enjoy watching cartoons as the sound effects, technical enhancements and storyline are fascinating.
There are also educational cartoons such as Thomas And Friends, Barney and Mickey Mouse Clubhouse which are interactive and make learning fun.
Recently, Starchild asked readers to send in letters and drawings on the topic, My Favourite Cartoon. Here’s what they have to say:
seven, likes Po the panda from the movie Kung Fu Panda. “Po was adopted by a goose and raised in a noodle shop. He is brave and always ready to use kung fu, but sometimes he is clumsy. I can’t wait to watch Kung Fu Panda 3 in the cinema soon.”
Teioh Wu Yang,
eight, likes fairy tale character Cinderella. “She is hardworking, kind to animals and has a beautiful pair of glass slippers.”
“I picked Sofia because she’s strong, makes me laugh and is a brave princess,” says
