The Batmobile!

I may have tricked you for a split second. No, this is not a real Batmobile, it's not even a life size replica....

It's a kiddy ride!

Yup, one of those contraptions where you put in $1, or $2 and your kid gets to ride in it with some music and movement and light.

I was quite awe-d at how creative and elaborate kiddy rides have become. At Great World City, where I found this Batmobile, they have 9 kiddy rides on the top floor, in close proxmity of each other, and 3 more ride on the ground floor, next to McCafe. All in all, I saw a Barney ride, Spots, Thomas the Tank Engine, Batmobile, a HORSE, a rocket, a car, a SPIDERMAN ride, and so many others I can't remember! Benjamin certainly had fun climbing into all of them (Daniel was in school). Word: our kids don't know these rides require money! We just let them climb in and .... that's it! heh heh

I agree on two counts: (1) Great World City certainly has a lot of money-spinning machines. (2) I don't let Isaac try the machines with the tokens inserted too! Think its best that the little ones enjoy the automobiles as they are, so that they won't get used to chugging along in them, music and all!
