It’s Not All Mary Poppins

Where can I get one of these?

I think the answer is “Taiwan”. Ooops! Wrong! It’s “Japan”!

Here we have group daycare, Japanese-style, sent to me courtesy of a friend (and loyal lurker) from Singapore. (Thanks, Mike!)

It has no belts nor brakes, that I can see. But, meh. How fast do you go with one of these things, anyway? The sides are easily high enough you’d have lots of notice if one of the crew were trying to make a break for it.

And look at it! It fits a minimum of four children, has great suspension, a grab-bar for a couple more to trundle along, and a lovely roomy storage bin. The kids can move around in there, getting a 360 view of the world around them. With fewer than four children, there’d be room for toys in there, room to have a picnic, and afterward? Toss in a blanket, and they can nap in capacious comfort.

AND it comes filled with little Asian babies, which, everyone knows, are mind-bogglingly cute! What more could you ask for?

Though, on second thoughts, I’d take mine without the tots. I have plenty here…
