Geri Grobman opened this trove of toys for newborns through 12-year-olds in late 2007, after the successful launch of the Language Littles, a line of plush, bilingual talking dolls. Located in the middle of a quiet block, the long, narrow store is loaded with a wide mix of popular, classic, and quirky playthings. Knowledgeable staff and clearly defined sections make it easier to navigate the offerings: elephant rattles, plastic gardening supplies, beach buckets, waterproof books to read in the bathtub, and a stockpile of board games—from Monopoly to Magna-Tiles. The store’s specialty, though, is a section of party favors—cupcake lip glosses, felt brooches, mini plastic ducks filled with bubbles—ideal for mixing and matching to delight your pint-sized party guests. An added shop perk is free delivery to Upper East Side residences.
