Lonely Planet review
A real winner with the kiddies, this interactive miniature city has offices, a school, a racetrack, a fire station, a hospital and a bank, and other real-world places. Children dress up and slip into adult roles to playfully explore what it’s like to be a firefighter, doctor, mechanic, pilot or other professional; there are 70 roles to choose from. They even earn a salary (in a currency called Kidzos, no less) with which they buy goods and services, thus learning the value of money. There is also a toddlers’ section for activities with accompanying parents. For older kids, you can just drop them off while you shop. What bliss!
