Kids have it so great these days, down to their pretend shopping choices in their own pretend city! Pretend City's market got a make over-take over by Trader Joe's last week. Let your kids explore the shelves and learn through play on how to make better food choices by choosing organic products. Adventurous ones, slip on the ever so festive hawaiian shirts like the ones sported by Trader Joe's employees and finally get the answer to why they ring that bell.

We got a sneak peek at this newly opened exhibit during their media preview, check out all the fun to be had and while you are here, enter to win a family 4 pack to experience it yourself with the kids. Plan to spend a few hours at least and have an exit plan, my kid never wants to leave this place!

Trader Joe's Market , everything you need for making meals and reusable bags too.

If you have yet to discover Pretend City in Irvine, it's listed as a child's museum but what that really boils down to is a completely hands on mini city the kids can explore and make believe to their hearts content. There is so much to see and do from a fire station, to a wharf to a dentist office all with costumes, props and the best part, everything is encouraged to be played with. We have been coming here for over 4 years now, for kids on the autism spectrum, this place is gold! So what was our little checkers favorite part of the new exhibit.... Working the registers, wearing the sweet Trader Joe's shirts and ringing the bell!

The market is stocked full of healthy choices, Trader Joe's brand products and all a busy shopper could need to check off their shopping list. Imagine the help you will get from your little ones after a visit here and then trying it out on a real shopping trip. If you are one that frequents Trader Joe's and ever wondered why the ring the bell there? There are the reasons why.

  1. Let's open another register
  2. A Crew member needs help
  3. A managers help is needed
Healthy choices and everything is made to look just like the real market.
