Mini Mall

Take a piece of Pretend City home with you! Our Mini Mall has everything you need to extend the fun and learning at home!

Pretend City’s Mini-Mall is the retail shop that has everything a visitor could want to extend the learning that takes places within the museum into the home. If your child worked as a firefighter at Pretend City Children’s Museum today, stop by the Mini-Mall and pick up a book about firefighters, some props, and maybe even a firefighter uniform so that your child’s imaginative play can extend to your home.

Did your child’s curiosity peak at the Marina or Beach Exhibit today? You can find plenty of age-appropriate books on sea life and conserving our oceans. The wonder is ignited in the exhibits, and continues through the resources found in the Mini-Mall to feed that new curiosity. You can count on Pretend City’s Mini-Mall to have what you need to keep those little brains churning!
