K and I were invited to Pretend City for a sneak peak at one of the most amazing children’s museums I have ever seen. Pretend City is a wonderful addition to Orange County and offers educational exhibits for every child from the ages of 8 months to 8 years (those are the approximate age ranges of my children and there was something for everyone). One of my favorite aspects of the museum were the infant spaces that are located in areas where parents can keep an eye on older children as they play in the grocery store or drive a car around. K’s boys seemed to take a liking to the tractors and farm. My boys loved being mailmen and buying groceries. The stage and dress-up area seemed to be very popular as well. Here are some reviews from the night:

“Let’s go back tomorrow.”
-a cute three year old

“That was amazing .”
-a cute seven year old

We had a wonderful night filled with imagination and learning, a parent’s wish and a child’s dream all come true all in one place, Pretend City. The museum opens to the public on August 30th, 2009, so mark your calendars!
