I thought I would post some of my favorite kid quotes from different research sessions over the past few months. Sometimes they give very cute answers and sometimes come up with just some of the strangest things.

“Why are they wearing bathing suits?” (because they're Bubble Guppies!) “I want to be a Bubble Guppie!” 4-year-old girl
"They’re half fish! That’s a mermaid."
"It was funny because I was goin' like this (big smile)." 3yr old girl

“Actors… the wolf came & Deema came over and she said she was late & she was like wolf don't come back. Can you read it again?” 4-year-old girl
"The owl going to kick the frog" (he means the wolf was going to get the Clam.)
