TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — Many parents are saddened by the news that Baby Boss, a simulated city in which children could role-play various jobs, will be clocking out for good on Nov. 30.

Wednesday morning (Sept. 11) at 12 a.m., Baby Boss announced on its Facebook page that it will shut its doors for good on at the end of November. In response, Taiwanese netizens left over 1,300 comments expressing their sadness about a place where they enjoyed happy childhood memories or regret that their own children would not be able to visit it.

Based in the Living Mall in Taipei's Songshan District, the role-playing amusement center offers children aged 3 to 12 the opportunity to experience duties of various occupations. In its farewell message, Baby Boss wrote the following:

"Dear citizens large and small, I regret to announce that the lease with the Living Mall is due to expire on Nov. 30, 2019. As the first children's career experience city, we are very grateful for your support and affirmation of Baby Boss over the past 12 years. Thank you again for your support. Once again, we thank you for your support. Goodbye until next time!"   [FULL  STORY]
