Owner description: BabyBoss City is Taiwan’s first simulation city made for children. The city is designed to create an environment for children to play and learn at the same time. Inside the 2300sq. ping city there are 50 professions and over 70 different occupations waiting for kids to explore. The settings allow games and role-playing scenarios to stimulate children’ learning capability. Once entered into BabyBoss, the children set their minds on only two things “learn from playing” and “learn from doing”. This environment opens up their abilities from within and sparks unlimited potentialities. The concept of money and how to value it are thoroughly taught within the city. The hands-on learning process is not only fun but also very rewarding.

An ideal place for a bad weather day. Great environment to allow children to experience a range of adults jobs (from a baker to a court office clerk to a space mission). Yes, it is in Chinese, but we learned that young children do not mind it. The staff is very helpful and most of them speak good English. We had a 3y.o. and 4.5y.o. experiencing jobs of fireman, baker, and flight cabin crew. They totally loved it to the point that they would not stop talking about it for the last few days.

Each "experience" has scheduled slots during the day and it can get crowded and a little bit annoying for kids to wait and queue for your time slots. Some "experiences" more popular than others (air crew) and depending on the crowed you might have to queue for 45 min.
Foreigners can get 20% discount on the entry price. All day ticket for 2 children and 2 adults (after discount) was in the region of 2,200 Taiwanese dollars.

Great experience, would certainly bring my children here again.

Baby Boss allows children to 'work' in different jobs (eg Pilot, Paramedic, Ice Cream Maker, Fashion Designer) and earn money to spend at the end of their experience. You MUST speak and understand some Mandarin to participate in this attraction. As our children learn Mandarin at school we thought they would have fun here, however as it involved a lot of concentration on the language as well as the tasks they had to do they became tired and irritable after a couple of jobs. Children have to queue up to do a job as there are only limited places and they only take a limited number. Our children did not get the chance to do the jobs they wanted as the queues were already too long however some of the jobs such as Police Officer took place frequently and all kids were able to have a turn. The attraction was very crowded and without a map it could be a little confusing to find places. We ended up staying only a few hours as our children became overwhelmed by the queuing, number of people and the language.
We don't regret going as it was a wonderful way to immerse our kids in the language and give them the experience of working. Despite the language our children have said they would like to go back and try it again as they become more fluent in Mandarin.
Tip: Make sure to look at the schedule for the jobs your child wants to do and go to line up at least 1/2 an hour before the scheduled time for jobs such as pilot and astronaut to have any chance of getting your child in.

this came highly recommended from friends and it's a good place to spend the entire day during the rainy season.

there's a shuttle service provided outside the land bank at zhongxiao fuxing station. go between mon-thurs, it's cheaper. bring your passport and you enjoy 20% off as well. set aside a full day, we were there from 11am-7pm.

the fire station and aircraft station were the most interesting for my 9 and 5yr old. the former had real water for the kids to spray. the latter had really cool uniforms.

parents are not allowed to Q on kids behalf so the kids have to spend quite a fair bit of time Q and waiting. usually between 30mins to an hour. my kids spent those time eating and playing games on the ipad.

both kids said they enjoyed themselves but personally, i think kids between 4-8 will enjoy this place the most. any older and some stations will be too kiddish for them. and yes, all instructions are in mandarin so if they dont understand the language at all, half the fun is gone!

Never to go on a Monday because it can get really crowded. If school has a Sat activity, then the school may close on following Monday.

My kids only managed 7 jobs out of 50+ jobs because it was VERY crowded on the Monday we went. The schools were closed due to a Sat Sport Day event! What luck!

A friend who went on a Tuesday - her son did 11 jobs but for a few jobs - the son was the only VIP. Personally I think to be the only VIP in a job can be very boring. Imagine your kid being the only drummer! Still I think it is better to be the only VIP than together with big crowds!

Some jobs have age limit or require you to read their Chinese characters. But I am sure each kid will be able to find something they like to be. All jobs can only take limited numbers of kids.

This is best for 4-10 yrs old, older than that may find Baby Boss boring.

Kids have to queue for the jobs themselves and parents SHOULD Always be with their own kids in the queue. Once a kid leaves the queue, if the parent is not around to make sure her kid still get the queue slot, another parent may quickly come in to insist her kid is in the queue.

I have also seen a few KS parents queued for their kids insisting their kids were away at washroom while the kids were actually acting another job. Some typical of these KS parents, bringing their trademark from home to Taiwan.....I can feel the locals shaking their heads.

Overall my girls enjoyed Baby Boss very much!

We spent almost whole day there. My 4yo daughter enjoyed her time there.
It was crowded that day as many school excursions visited the place too. There are few occupations that she couldn't take part as, firstly, too many kids line up, second, certain job only have few time slot and if you missed it, you can't join it anymore. Another problem is my daughter is english speaker so she has problem to understand the instruction. Although the staff there will explain to her in english later, while at job the staff is using mandarin to communicate with other kids.

Anyway, it is still a great experience to her.
