It was an expensive failure back in '07 in the US. Don't see how this kiddie concept will be a winner in Japan today, unless it's catering its product to people who don't want to mature beyond five years old. Now that I think about the target audience....

I'm sure they announced this a few years ago. No prices are listed above so it doubtless costs an arm and a leg.

Oh look, Docomo copying Softbank's Disney line. They are not unpopular, but then again, i dont think they are a raging success.
