    I would love to take my two toddlers on a play date there! I have one who has social anxiety so something like that would be awesome for him to be around many kids his age and learn to socialize. My other one just loves kids and people and can fit in anywhere!!

    • Amanda says:


      I completely understand what you are going through. I have a five year old who just over came social anxiety and my 3 1/2 keeps getting worse as she gets older. I truely believe these places are great for little ones. Hang in there it is hard but will pay off!!

    Good Luck to everyone!!

    P.S. Posted the link to facebook =)

  10. Lori says:

    I would LOVE to take my 4-yr-old daughter. I think she’s the perfect age for this. But I could never take her if we had to pay full price! Thank you Daytrippingmom!

  11. Jennifer :) says:

    I would love to take the kiddos to Pretend City and join you there. We’ve been meaning to go back ever since our first visit when it opened.

  12. Jennifer :) says:

    Oh, and I’ve passed on the info for your fb page to all of my moms group friends. Hopefully some of them will join us as well.

  13. Autumn says:

    My husband used to work right next door and got a tour before they opened. He said it looked great, but it was just too expensive for us to go as a family. The kids would SO love to go and I’d love something to do with them on a day off from school!

  14. Robyn says:

    I have been thinking about trying that place out, it would be GREAT to win the free tix, but I think I’ll join you either way for that price. Thanks for putting this together!

  15. Robin says:

    Wow !! What a great prize !! We would love to come .. my 2 girls LOVE pretend anything 🙂 Thank you so much for providing such fantastic ideas on ways to spend fun family time with our kids 🙂

  16. Kristy Case says:

    My kids LOVE Pretend City!!! It’s their favorite place to play and it’s my favorite place to hang out with some of my favorite mom’s!! 🙂

  17. Katie says:

    Hi I really appreciate all of these great tips for places to go! I have 3 toddlers who love to stay busy and this looks like a fun place to let them play! Thanks for all you do!

  18. Katie says:

    Hi again! I just looked at the coupon and does it mean that I can get all three of my kids at half price including myself? Thanks

  19. Diana Gonzalez says:

    My 2 kids and I would love to go to Pretend City and you can’t beat the price! We have never been, so this will be such a great experience. Can’t wait! So my 2 kids can use the 2 for 1 and I can pay the $4.50(if we don’t win) or if my husband goes we can use the 2 for 1?

    • Daytrippingmom says:

      Hi Diana, if you don’t win, we will all meet at 10 and pair up so that odd number families can use the coupon. It’s going to be fun!

  20. sarah c m says:

    Wow what a great opportunity! I am a new stay at home mommy and money is SUPER tight. I have been wanting to take my boys…my oldest one turns 2 only 2 days before! He would have a blast! Please pick me!

  21. Tiffany says:

    I would love to go to pretended city with my almost 5 years old twins. They got too much energies in them and I need a place to take them.
    So we can have a peaceful afternoon/night at home.

  22. Oanh S. says:

    I haven’t had a chance to take my 3 yr old to Pretend City so this would be the perfect opportunity! I heard they have recently opened a Curious George area that would be fun! Thanks for the giveaway!!!

  23. Kami says:

    Have been wanting to take my daughter since it has opened, however just haven’t found the extra funds to go. Would love to win free entry for this.

  24. brandie says:

    My boys would love it!! They have never been. What a great place for an 8,4, 2 year old to play. The 2 year will be 3 on Nov 2nd, what a great surprise this would be.

  25. Teresa Morehead says:

    I would love the opportunity to take my soon-to-be 3 year old daughter to Pretend City. I think she would have a great time playing with other toddlers her age. Thank you!!!

  26. Eloise says:

    My two little one’s have never been to ‘Pretend City’… and my little guy would go bonkers for ‘Curious George’! He loves him! I hope we win, it sounds like it will be a great day!

  28. Connie Lau says:

    Hi, This is my first time to visit your site and I hope I could win the ticket and take my 18-month-old daughter to visit the Pretend City in Irvine for her first time since we are living in Irvine as well. Hope I win!!! Thanks and looking forward to meet you on that day 🙂

  29. debra says:

    We have been wanting to go here since it opened but like a lot of other families, money is so tight that we are stretching every last dime. The admission for one grown up and 3 kiddos is just not anything we can afford. We were hoping to save up bday money and try to finally go there to see all the fun things we’ve heard about.
    Keeping our fingers and toes crossed to hopefully win a spot!
    Good Luck everyone.

  30. Betsy Galdamez says:

    Yey! i wanted to take my 3 kids, but was hoping for a discount. you answered my prayers ;p thank you so much for your posts, my family has enjoyed alot of free activities thanks to you 😀

  31. amanda says:

    I know my son would love to go. Me and my co-workers were planning to do this as a mommy trip. Hopefully we can all make it this day.

  32. Callidora says:

    I’ve heard lots of wonderful things about this place. I’d love to see what type of stuff they have for my 7mo old son 😀

  33. Elizabeth says:

    This sounds like a fun giveaway! I haven’t taken my 3 kids to Pretend City in Irvine yet, but would love to :0). I enjoy visiting your website and learning all the fun things you can do with your kids. Thanks!

  34. Nia says:

    On behalf of my newly turned 3yr old and I, I would love to join you on this adventure. It sounds like an amazing opportunity and I have been wanting to go to pretend city with Justin ever since I heard about it opening. I have been wanting to get out of my comfort zone and meet other mommys to relate to, and it sounds like you have lots of advice and experiences to share. I hope I can join you on this fun outing with our little ones!! Thanks anyway for the chance to win. Take care

  35. Hope says:

    We LOVE Pretend City. We’ve been twice and my kids have such a good time. We’d love to go again with you and save some money at the same time! We’re coming whether or not we win to get in free!

  40. Debbie Moreno says:

    That would be a great day out for my kids and I, My Kinder is off school that day for a furlough day. So, we are looking for something to do. We have been trying to go there, but we haven’t made it yet.

  41. Nadine says:

    I can’t wait for this fieldtrip. I am a working mommy and I am taking some vacation time in November so this is going to be a great kick off to mommy and me time. My daughter is going to love it.

  42. Nicole Acevedo says:

    I would love to take my kids to Pretend City. It would be nice to have a special outing for my two older kids seeing how they have not had a lot of mommy time since our new little one joined our family in August. I love you site and have used it weekly to find fun things to do as a family. Thanks for all the great ideas!!!!

  43. Michelle says:

    I have wanted to take my 2 younger sons for awhile now. What a great opportunity! The breakfast & goodies sound wonderful, but we will be there regardless! Can’t wait :0)

  44. Marcie says:

    I would LOVE to go with my little guy to Pretend City. This is EXACTLY what he needs, this would be a fun day for sure!!! =) Hope we’re one of the lucky one’s….

  45. Andria Taylor says:

    I can’t tell you how many time your website has saved my life when stressing about what to do with my 3-1/2 year old twins. I was introduced to pretend city here and the two-fer fridays. Last month we went on the wrong friday (duh, twins) but they allowed me the 2fer anyway! Now I’m loyal for life! We’re always up for a trip to Pretend City, woo hoo.
