Baby Boss - Taipei 16-22 Aug 2013 Part 3
Technically, your child is not a boss in Baby Boss though the name is. He/she is an employee who has to work in each vocation to earn some money (called Baby Bucks). With these money, he/she can then treat him/herself to ice-cream (real one) or buy some ingredients to make pasta or bread (poor kid!). In some sense, the child gets to understand that money do not drop from heaven, they have to labour for it?!
When I brought AJ to Baby Boss, it coincided with their school summer holiday. It was not ideal because we had to pay a premium for a half-day fun. It was also a little crowded (not very though) for a weekday visit, to my dismay. Nonetheless, the boy had a blast!
This is the Baby Boss brochure. Do take time to read before you adjourn on.
The floor plan of the different stations is here. You would note that there are different time slots for different activities, so proper planning to max out your time there is essential.
We spent about 5 hours in Baby Boss (10am to 3pm). Including lunch, AJ only managed to cover 5 stations (sad huh) due to the different activity timing & time spent on queuing. Once the head count is meant for that activity, you would have to wait for the next time slot. Thus, there is a need to queue earlier for hot stations. And this is time consuming.
|We target at those for 7 up 1st because they are less kiddo :)|

|Now the Voice-over|
|The News Agency that AJ worked in|
|Life of a Reporter|
|AJ's new reporting as a reporter|
|A 'Day' as a Dentist|

|Checking on a patient|
|Getting ready to get to the space|
|He landed safely!|
It was a fun learning experience for AJ, he had a slight idea of what each vocation was about. More of such role play would be good for a child to establish some ideas what he/she would like to do as he/she grows up.
