A unique place for kids to play and learn has opened in the Lehigh Valley.

Imagi Nation is located in the Dorneyville Shopping Center in South Whitehall. It's been two years in the making for owner Wendy Pitts who says she wanted to create a interactive space that had been highly requested by parents.

"It's an opportunity for them to come play, be creative, have fun," she said.

Imagi Nation is a "kid city." It is built to scale for children and includes things like a bank, grocery store, dentists office, fire and police stations.

Kids are able to role play inside the different businesses and earn money by buying and selling goods.

"We're looking at providing the Lehigh Valley with an alternative to having kids behind screens," said Pitts. "They can understand the basics of financial literacy.

Imagi Nation is open Monday-Friday and on weekends. They also rent space for birthday parties and school field trips.
