Dad Created Little Versions Of Target And Starbucks For Daughter During Quarantine

A super dad in California built his daughter mini-stores of Target and Starbucks so she could still go to her favorite places while social distancing.

Kern County police officer, Diego Gonzalez, built a Target cash register and a Starbucks stand for his daughter, Mila, who loves visiting both stores.

Gonzalez was meticulous with his creation, making sure all the details perfect, from the Target name tag and ’employee of the month’ to fake mini cake pops, and even real Starbucks aprons.

Gonzalez told Insider:

The end result really made us proud of what we did and seeing how happy she was playing with it made it all worth it. Especially now, when you can’t go out to get distracted and everyone has to be indoors, making that easier on my daughter was worth it.

We went to Target on one of our runs and I spoke to the manager. I said, ‘I know this may sound odd, but we’re doing a little project and was wondering if I could get a name tag by any chance?’ I showed her some photos of the progress we had made on the register and she said it was pretty cool, so she let us have one of the real Target name tags. We then customized it with Mila’s name.

As for the Starbucks stand, here’s the final product of it:

Gonzalez went into a local Starbucks store and got smaller cups they used as measuring cups for drinks, along with Starbucks aprons.

Mila went from seeing the progress of it to really being hands-on and playing.

It was so cute to see her recognize it. I bought her little fake cake pops, and she was so excited. She was really surprised, which made it all that much better.

Problem-solving, being creative, just using your mind, and all having input on it really does make that bond even stronger, because you’re doing it together as a family.
