Early Learning Centre launches Job Seekers role-play kit
The Early Learning Centre has incorporated the current recession in its product range by launching a play-at-home Job Centre set for children aged 3-8. The kit includes a counter window with toughened glass, lots of forms to fill in and a range of patronising responses to excuses for failing to find work.
‘We’ve always tried to make toys that educate children about the world,’ said a spokeswoman for the ELC, ‘and there’s no doubt this will stand them in good stead for when the time comes to claim benefits themselves.’ The product was tipped to be a Christmas best-seller, but sales slowed after children were pushed to the back of the queues for display models by their parents.Click to send this story to a friend
