Thereís a new sport in town and itís not horseracing
- itís Baby Racing! Those who attended the regionís 1st annual Thai Baby
Derby were howling with laughter at these little tots. Hoards of babies and
their parents descended on the Pacific Park shopping complex in Sriracha
last weekend to find the Fastest Baby in the East.
rattle sounds and away they go! Fast as greased lightening, able to leap
over a stuffed teddy-bear with only a few bounds, is it a bunny rabbit? A
turtle? No, itís Superbaby!

with children between 8 months to 1 year old - and still unable to walk.

Getting a little sidetracked by the pretty balloon.

open promoting childrenís products and information from local hospitals on

kidís aerobics; even Thai and ballroom dancing.
