Stick pony races, pillow fights, dress-up bike rides, organized snowball fights...there was a lot of talk a few years ago about the infantalization of youth culture in Asia a few years back (hello kitty everything, love of pokemon, etc.).

It seems that the same thing is now happening right here in the good old US of A. Doesn't anyone want to be a grown up anymore?
