|"Anak Indonesia". Children are the same, whether they are in Indonesia
or in other parts of the world. This page gives a brief information about
children in Indonesia.
On the left you see a picture of kids in Indonesia. This picture was taken in a children shoe store. Look at the shoes in the back.
Children in Indonesia like to watch cartoon just like other children. There are many Japanese cartoons such as Doraemon, Detective Conan, Digimon, Pokemon. They are also available as books. Most children like to read books with pictures. They don't like too many text, like "Harry Potter" for example. (By the way, three Harry Potter books have been translated to Indonesian languange. The translation is fairly accurate.)
Children also like to play electronic toys such as PlayStation. Many stores sell Play Station CDs. Most of them are pirated CDs with Japanes titles. They are cheap, about Rp. 6000 (or US 50 cents, less than a dollar). Nintendo used to be popular, but not anymore.
Here is another picture of my kids in a shopping mall. This one was taken in Bandung. They like fastfood just like other kids in the world. Their favorites include McDonald's, Pizza Hut, Kentucky Fried Chicken, Popeye's, and the like.
