Whilst a few of us were off shopping at the mall in Chitre we noticed a temporary kiosk.
It is a new electrical amusement ride that looks like real animals and plays music. There was one largish child riding across the mall on a leopard while we were there. Apparently these things can hold over 200 lbs.
And this is a really bad picture of the animal corral, set up in front of the Madison Store sign:
These “ride em” toys cost between $500.00 to $800.00 each, and that’s a large investment for what I think is about 10 toys. At a cost of $3.75 per ride, I don’t imagine the typical Panamanian family will be lining up. Allowing the workers lots of time for texting and talking.
