I had the opportunity to visit Pretend City in Irvine a few weeks back and learn more about their Good to Go From Head to Toe program. My daughter was in preschool, so I couldn’t bring her along. All I kept thinking the entire time was how she would go absolutely, positively, undeniably crazy for Pretend City.
For those of you who have not visited yet, it is a hands-on children’s museum built solely around an entire “pretend city.” There’s a Ralph’s Fresh Fare, art studio, beach, bank, doctor’s office, gas station and the list goes on and on. Children can explore and play and pretend to the extent of their wildest imaginations. It is simply a child’s wonderland! And, great for all ages, from the newest of walkers up to grade school. For admission & hours click HERE.
Pretend City has recently launched The Good To Go from Head To Toe initiative which aims to increase awareness about healthy child development through play and empower parents with knowledge about their child’s development from birth to age 5.
Play with a purpose!
Way to Play days take place the second Friday of every month at Pretend City. On Way to Play days, community partners will be on-site at the museum to offer parents and caretakers free resources and services that promote the healthy development of children.
Yippee! I have a Pretend City coupon to offer you! Click HERE to print a Pretend City coupon for 2-for-1 admission on Way to Play days! Such a deal and a great day to visit so you can take advantage of this amazing program.
