CityShops are so much fun and set up to expand your child's imagination. Your child can make a pretend pizza, shop for groceries, or pet an animal at the pet shop...there is so much to see. We've just named a few.
Each CityShop has several books that are related to that room. For example, you might find a children's cookbook in our bakery or a "Fancy Nancy" book in our beauty salon.
