Packed with miniature frocks and button-downs, books, board games, and plump Fuzzy Town stuffed animals, this crowded, colorful source for new and used kids' gear resembles a well-stocked playroom. A bright-green room in back houses Legos and secondhand plastic toys to occupy tykes while parents browse clothes beneath a swirling dinosaur mobile in front. The shop buys, sells, and trades for kid paraphernalia like strollers, car seats, high chairs, and apparel (ages newborn to 8), donating overstock to charity on a weekly basis. New attire includes cotton rompers from Imps & Elfs, Velcro-fastened See Kai Run sheepskin-leather shoes, and illustrated onesies from Kiwi, but well-edited round racks full of gently used clothing yield discoveries like Hatley corduroy jackets, Ralph Lauren ruffled dresses and neon polos, and jeans from the Children’s Place, most for less than $10 a pop. Shelves spanning the buttery yellow walls display Usborne children’s books, puzzles, and board games that spill over into baskets on the orange tiled floor. Brooklyn-touting hoodies and T-shirts hanging on clothespins above the register hint at the store’s loyal neighborhood following, and year-round store events appeal to local pint-size shoppers, like photo ops with Santa Claus, trick-or-treating excursions, and arts-and-crafts projects on the front sidewalk during the summer.
