#2 of 54 things to do in Irvine
Such a wonderful layout of a miniature kid-sized city, including a beach (with sailing boats and fishing).... all pretend, of course... but so real to our grandkids.
I think a 3+ year old would really love this place but I think that if you want to get the kiddo out of the house and he/sh can crawl, it's stimulating and child friendly.
