In Japan they have lightning fast bullet trains (aka Shinkansen) moving people all around the country at high speeds. Since we don’t have those here in America, here’s what you can do to spark your child’s imagination. Wait until the kid is sick, then take out the Bullet Train Thermometer to take their temperature. In their fever-crazed dream-like state, they will believe that they actually were traveling at hyper-speeds across the globe.
Of course once the Tylenol kicks in they can go back to plodding along slowly like our lame American trains (Mommy, what’s a train?). That’s why the most famous train for American kids is Thomas..he’s sooooo slow. Perfect plan. Comes in three different bullet train styles too. (via inventorspot)
