Two parents have given their children everything: a home that takes care of them, a nursery that bends to their every whim, a rocket for everyday use. George and Lydia have become reliant on their house. It rocks them to sleep at night. It ties their shoes. It makes their food. It basically does all of the things that they should be doing as adults and parents.

Two parents have given their children everything: a home that takes care of them, a nursery that bends to their every whim, a rocket for everyday use. George and Lydia have become reliant on their house. It rocks them to sleep at night. It ties their shoes. It makes their food. It basically does all of the things that they should be doing as adults and parents. Needless to say, year old twins Wendy and Peter love their house. They especially love their nursery, a sort of imaginarium, where anything they imagine comes to life instantly--all they must do is think it.
It seems as real as real could be, down to the smells, the feel of the ground, the warmth of the sun on a summer's day. George and Lydia grow worried when the nursery's interior changes: no longer do they see Aladdin and his lamp, or the cow jumping over the moon.
Instead, an African veldt or plain has emerged, and it won't go away. They also are beginning to feel the wear of their technology-filled lives: the house has become wife and mother, bemoans Lydia. They with the help of psychologist David McLean realize that they are becoming unnecessary in their own home thanks to all that it can do, and they have been--unconsciously or not--feeling the strain of being useless. This room is their mother and father, far more important in their lives than their real parents.
And now you come along and want to shut it off. No wonder there's hatred here. You can feel it coming out of the sky. Feel that sun. The parents also come to the realization that their children are spoiled, almost beyond repair, and they resent their parents meddling in their affairs and their attempts at disciplinary action. When technology becomes their parents, parents become obsolete.
Meanwhile, the veldt continues to lurk in the background. Lions prowl the plain, mouths dripping with a fresh kill. Vultures circle. The African sun beats down.
Oddly enough, George finds his old wallet and his wife's scarf, bloodied in the room. Strangely familiar screams are heard from the nursery, though the parents make no attempt to discover their origin. Tension comes to a head when George makes the decision to shut down the house and lock up the nursery. What will happen to the twins? What will happen to George and Lydia? Why are lions lying in wait in the nursery? Bradbury's short story is a chilling cautionary tale.
He warns of what happens when there is a breakdown in communication in families, of the need to feel needed--all too real in this day and age. And he reminds us that in this technologically-driven world, that family should still come first. It is in-stock!
