The thought of a house that ultimately simplifies your life by cooking your meals, brushing your teeth, or cleaning your dishes may sound intriguing and useful, but in The Veldt, Ray Bradbury shows us some of the more terrifying aspects to the idea of a "living house." He helps us to realize the importance of doing things on our own. The moment we let someone else, or SOMETHING else control parts of our lives, things begin to go wrong.

Parents George and Lydia Hadley seem to be enjoying their thirty thousand dollar Happylife Home, until their children begin to love the house’s magical nursery more than their own family. When the parents decide to shut down the nursery and other parts of their “happy” home, we see the real extent that the children will go to in order to keep their Happylife Home alive.
