I participated in a campaign for Mom Central Consulting (#MC) on behalf of Konica Minolta. I received a promotional item as a thank you for participating.
Every so often my kids and I revisit the discussion where they talk about what they want to be when they grow up. Sometimes our son wants to be a soldier, others a police officer like his dad. Our oldest daughter is set on being a professional cheerleader or a teacher. And our little one, well, she wants to be a police woman with a dog. I’m sure as they grow older these hopes and dreams will evolve but there’s one thing that holds true no matter what. We always end the discussion with a piece of advice from me.
You have your whole life ahead of you and you can dream as big as your heart desires. If you work hard and try, your dreams can come true!
And sometimes, it’s nice to get a glimpse of what those hopes and dreams will look like. Konica Minolta, an industry leader in Business Technologies, especially Production Printing, wants to celebrate extending children’s imaginations and encouraging big dreaming with the “Giving Shape to Ideas” initiative. The brand created a “Dream Printer,” where children in a New York state park could approach a unique printer and share with it what they most wanted to be when they grow up. Watch the video below to see what comes out of the printer and the reactions from the kids.
