Outline

KidZania Tokyo was "founded" in 2006 as a place where children play the leading roles. Built at a scale two-thirds as large as a real town, this kid-sized pretend city features some 50 pavilions sponsored by real-world corporations, including a fire department, bakery, newspaper office, and television station. Children don realistic uniforms to try one of about 70 occupations to see what the work is like for themselves. As payment, they earn "Kidzos", the local currency, which can be spent on goods and services here. In this way, KidZania offers children early social and occupational experiences.
