Pretend Play Shops

There is nothing new in the idea of a pretend play shop but it isn’t so long ago that kids had to make do with a little table and heaps of imagination. This is no longer the case with a good selection of little shops and life-like accessories available to buy online. Now kids can channel their imagination into the role of a friendly shopkeeper and leave the building of the shop to the experts.
