Have you heard about KidZania?

Just heard about this crazy idea from some friends who are visiting from Tokyo.  At a high level, it’s like Disneyland, except kids take jobs instead of “playing.”  Honestly it sounds like a lot of fun, but then I used to dress up in brown and deliver packages to the neighbors when I was younger.  There is evidently a vocal minority who think that KidZania is glorifying capitalism.  Part of the allure to potential franchisees is the high level of corporate sponsorship; kids work in a Coca-Cola bottling factory, manage a McDonalds, etc.  Anyway, it appears that a VP Marketing from Nintendo of America has been tapped to bring the idea to the U.S.  I can’t wait to take CC.
