Don't forget the terrible PC police. A banner that read "English Speaking Wednesday" would be immediately branded racist. :roll:

Great update guys

I just saw the adverts for the new Kidzania in London Yesterday.

I have a 6 year old niece and thought this like a great plan for her 7th birthday. (Secretly I'm kind of excited to see it too).
It looks like a great idea and actually pretty educational.

Kidzania looks great - "edutainment" that isn't dumbed down at all!

Man, this looks incredible. It harnesses into that inherent desire to "play pretend" in a child and delivers on such a grand scale. How inspiring!

This looks awesome! I'm not sure if we should make our way down to Mexico City to try the one there or just save up the cash and make a Japan Trip and go to the one in Tokyo. My son loves this type of stuff and it is so awesome to see things like this offered in certain parts of the world. I think it's also really cool that they have an English day in Tokyo so that locals can learn the language. I'm assuming they still keep to the Japanese culture while during the jobs rather than the American culture. Did Kristen leaner the secret ingredients and ratio to make Coke and can you bottle it from home now?

Here is something that just happened which further shows why we just love Japan...
image.jpg

Moments after this picture was taken, a Japanese staff member came over with her tambourine congratulating Kristen on her win. She said a bunch of Japanese stuff that I'm sure translated into "OMG! You are so cute! If I could give you free stuff I would, but I can't, so instead I'll open up this other machine filled with Frozen buttons and I can place them in such a way that you will immediately win them." Which she did. She opened the machine, asked Kristen what we favorite characters were, places those buttons near the edge, Kristen put in a coin, knocked four buttons into the hole and the tambourine girl erupts with excitement again!!!

I love Japan!
