Kids' Stuff

Munich has to be one of the best cities in the world for children of any age. There is simply a staggering array of choices. Biking through the Olympic Park or English Gardens, one of the world’s largest urban parks. Swimming at public pools that are more like water wonderlands than anything you might see in the states. Indoor and outdoor ice rinks. The Deutsches Museum with its own kids world. Indoor play areas like Lollihop that keep kids entertained for hours on cold, snowy days. And that doesn’t even begin to cover the surrounding lakes and mountains – all within 45 minutes drive. This photo was taken at i-camp, which supports the arts through regional theatre performances. I loved the photo because of the contrast between the worn and experienced ballet slippers, and the new energy of the kids ready to perform.

That's a really striking photo - I like it a lot! You're right, Munich is great for kids - my niece is 4, and I'm pleased that there's so much going on nearby that she can enjoy and experience.

Yes, indeed... these shoes remind me of my Childhood. I was 5 years old and was having ballet lessons at the pre-primary school and the teacher traumatized me FOREVER when she said I looked like an elephant!!!...

I like your entry, the photo has some kinda nostalgic feel but the copy is very interesting.

Will definitely check out those places the next time I am in Munich.
