Long term memory
I have found that children have probably better long-term memory than I expected: last week I went with Iva to my parents', and I have put the blue plastic case with snow chains into the car trunk. After some time, Iva said "Grandpa has snow chains, yellow case.".
Indeed, my father-in-law has his snow chains in a case similar to my one, but it is yellow instead of blue. I think Iva has seen this case (and the snow chains themselves) only once, maybe half a year ago. After this time she not only able to remember the term "snow chains", but also the fact that the other Grandpa has snow chains too, in the differently colored case.
