Pretend City is one of our favorite places to hang out in all of OC. I don’t think you can run out of things to play with your kid to encourage learning.
We went there the day before Halloween because they were going to have a trick or treat event. It turned out to be one of her favorite days. See Video below too.
To our surprise, when we arrived Claire found Snowhite hanging around Pretend City. Claire couldn’t believe her eyes. She stayed with her pretty much the whole time.
She was hogging Snow White! And I tried to let other kids hang out with her too, but Claire wasn’t interested in that. Snow White was really good about including the other kids, but believe me, Claire took charge in the activities.
They all went grocery shopping for a while, that was interesting. Seeing 4 Ana princesses and other characters following Snow White at a pretend grocery store. You just don’t see that everyday.
Then they played at the sound stage with the lights and the sound board. But when that got boring they jumped on stage to play some music.
All the while I could see in Claire’s face an expression of pure incredulity. We hardly ever run into Snow White at Disneyland and when we do, we’re lucky to get 15 seconds with her for a photo and pooof! she’s on her way.
This time Claire thought. I have her all to myself. I’m not letting this one go! Carpe Diem I say!
Thank you, Pretend City for that really awesome surprise. And thank you Snow White for being so great with the kids.
