Papalote Children's Museum Teaches Kids To Tear Down Walls

Papalote Children's Museum in Mexico City is teaching kids to break down walls, not build them.

The museum created the The Wall Breaker Rope, a game that allows children from distant parts of the city to play with one another. Namely, it matches kids from an elite private school with children who live in a poor neighborhood and attend public school.

Although the kids are 43km away, each set of kids has a rope, TV screen and a competitive nature to pull down the wall separating them from each other. Despite differences in socioeconomic status, the kids are all just kids and have a great time playing and making new friends.

The game, created by FCB Mexico, extends the museum's motto of "toco, juego y aprendo" (touch, play and learn).
