Dinosaurs and robots

Why are certain topics endlessly fascinating to kids, whereas other topics just make their eyes glaze over? Lots of kids love dinosaurs and robots and space ships and magic. Very few kids love politics (to give one example among many).

What is the quality that makes a topic particularly appealing to kids? Do these topics have some thread in common?

I don’t have a definitive answer, but I think it’s a good question to ask.
