Our salute to good, old-fash­ioned fun

The Sunday Post (Dundee) - - OPINION -

While elec­tronic me­dia dom­i­nates our kids’ and grand­chil­dren’s lives, it’s good to see more tra­di­tional forms of en­ter­tain­ment still go­ing strong.

Sun­day Post read­ers, of course, know that Oor Wul­lie is a na­tional trea­sure. Now his ap­peal will be en­joyed by a new gen­er­a­tion es­pe­cially with the ad­vent of Oor Wul­lie’s Big Bucket Trail.

And then there is Com­mando, which is now en­joy­ing a resur­gence with the pub­li­ca­tion of its first graphic novel.

Be it car­toon strips or books, there re­mains some­thing truly spe­cial about ab­sorb­ing sto­ries in a phys­i­cal for­mat.

It can be re­lax­ing. It can also fire kids’ imag­i­na­tions and cre­ativ­ity es­pe­cially when en­joyed with their pals, broth­ers or sis­ters.

And, let’s face it, any time away from their phone has to be wel­comed, doesn’t it?
