At first glance, this Chelsea boutique looks a bit like an oversized kid’s closet: toys, books, raincoats, and pint-sized outfits fill the tiny space without any apparent order. But this this is no Gymboree, and if your little fashionista refuses to wear anything from the Gap, this store might be the answer to her wardrobe woes—among the slightly haphazardly placed goods are top-of-the-line kids clothes from designers like Imps & Elfs and Ouef, and the space even hosts the occasional kiddie-sized trunk show. There are also plenty of covetable stuffed animals and toys like “Create Your Own Designer Dolly.” As for the shiny red airplane in the back of the store, it has an important dual purpose as the haircut station. While getting groomed kids get to sit in the “cockpit” and pretend to take flight, which is enough to distract even the most adamant young Samson. (Haircuts are available Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday.)
