Kidzania is a miniature world for kids ages 3-13. At Kidzania, children can choose from a variety of occupations, become "certified" in that occupation, and then work in that occupation. It truly is the coolest place on earth.
Yesterday we went to Kidzania, and I volunteered as one of the chaperons for Jude's preschool class. I was surrounded by 15 screaming mimis.
The kids had a great time and learned a lot. I felt sorry for Jude because most of the instruction was in Japanese and sometimes he looked like a lost puppy dog. But, he over came the language barrier and had a blast. He was a fire fighter, an airplane pilot, an ice cream maker, and rode around in the Kidzania city bus.
