Tsinghua Professor Patrick Chovanec was wandering the aisles of a baby supply store in Beijing when he came across this hilarious educational poster series:
Hanging from a counter were a series of decorative wall posters depicting some of the essential things a child might learn in their first few years: colors, shapes, different kinds of animals. Right beside the one with colors and shapes (see the cell phone picture I snapped below) was another one — also recommended for ages 0-3 – displaying the different brands of luxury automobiles: BMW, Bentley, Rolls Royce, Porsche, Mercedes Benz, Lincoln, etc. (as an import, Chevrolet is also considered a prestigious car in China)
Well, you know, as important as it is for your kid to know basic geometry, it’s also just as important for them to know what they need to aspire to. I wonder if they’ve come out with a branded bag label one too.
