Makka Pakka – cave dweller, megalithic tomb constructor, or archaeologist?

My 2,5 years old son is fond of In the Night Garden. One of its characters is called Makka Pakka. According to the show’s website he “likes nothing more than collecting and washing little stones. He also enjoys washing and drying the faces of the other toys…Makka Pakka sleeps in his little cave, he has a little stone bed which is covered with colourful bedding.” Sounds like he is an archaeologist…

As seen in this clip, the cave is combined with a neolithic megalithic tomb.


Anyway, my son’s interest in Makka Pakka sets his path towards archaeology and cave research. Maybe I should set him along another path instead?
