Master of Hide and Seek

Mao Mao is a long-haired dog in Grandpa's house. Mao Mao loves to play hide-and-seek with everyone. We thought we would find Mao Mao quickly, but unexpectedly, we found things that looked like Mao Mao, such as a mop, a colored pencil, and a scarf, but we couldn't find the real Mao Mao. Can you guess where Mao Mao is hiding?

Director Statement

This series of stories aims to engage children in observing interesting objects in everyday life. Some objects may appear similar in appearance, but through observation and imagination, they can generate visual amusement. For example, colorful marbles can resemble a cat's eyes, a fuzzy scarf can resemble a dog's fur, scissors can resemble a bird's beak, a long rope can resemble an animal's tail, and a round drum surface can resemble a turtle's belly, and so on.
Using a first-person subjective perspective allows the audience to get closer to the joy of playing hide-and-seek, increasing their sense of participation.
