"Upside down" can be confusing

My 16 month old son is learning what upside down means.  We have this Winnie the Pooh and friends stacking set and when we stack the figures upside down, J is fascinated and becomes giggly because he recognizes something is different.  He tries to immitate Pooh Bear by tipping his head to the side, trying to create the upside down affect.  Generally it only lands him flat on the floor.

I'm fascinated that he is grasping this concept, being upside down, and how other things can be upside down.  What does that mean to a 16 month old?  Right now, it appears to capture his attention and become a huge part of his world.  I love how something so small to us can seem so big to my son.

Trying to look at them upside down.

"uh oh" they fell over
