I was shopping here with a friend for my son and his little buddy. Came across some cool vintage car toys from Schylling. The owner comes up to us and asks if we need any help. You know, the kind of help that's more like an "I'd feel more comfortable if you weren't in my store" kind of "help". I said we were okay and were just trying to pick out a color and see how the car works. She says - "You want to know how it works? I'll show you how it works." and she grabbed the car from my hand and jammed it on the store floor and revved it up while making a "vroom vroom" noise from her own mouth. "That's how it works". She handed it back to me and walked away. I looked at my friend in disbelief and went to confront her about her rudeness. She accused us of opening the boxes the cars were in and pulling out the bottom layer of cars, which we never did. She said we were rough with the cars, which we weren't. She also said we were worser behaved than the kids who come in here. Wow, really? Lady, you must hate kids. That was the last straw. We left the store, and before we did, I said to her that this is no way to treat her customers. She shrieked back at me something to the effect of her running the store for over a decade without any problems. Really lady? Is this why your store was empty today? And why your internet ratings are so stellar? I won't return here until she learns to treat her customers with the dignity and respect that they deserve.

Space Kiddets has some unique pieces and fun toys. However, if you are looking for good customer service - AVOID THE OWNER! She is clearly burnt out of her job (or just miserable)! I watched her berate a customer and snap at her staff. It made my shopping experience so uncomfortable. Personally, i'd rather shop another boutique and be treated with respect!

If this store was ever great, it's clearly past its heyday. None of the more current designer brands you would expect from a high end children's clothing boutique. Instead, all I found is the same stuff you can find in moderate department stores but with a ridiculous markup. In addition, the store owner is awful to speak to - utterly unhelpful and obnoxious. They also don't give any refunds. Only store credit within 10 days which also expire!

Was in New York just before Christmas 2007 came upon this shop by accident thankfully. The woman who assisted me was really nice and very helpful. Wrapped my purchases beautifully and the choice was for me extensive some very unusual kids clothes which was exactly what I was looking for, anyway can't praise them enough so sorry I'm now back in Scotland never mind might get back again this Christmas if God spares me.

I love this store! it has the best clothes for children and even adults! They have incredible sales twice a year, where you can get the trendiest stuff at 50% to 70% off! I bought my daughter her wordrobe for the year to come, its great, the "hot" things that were somewhat expensive are at lowest prices like if you would go to gap and spent money on ordinary things! And if you ever need a gift, they have a great selection of things, and you can be sure no one else would bring a gift even similar to the one you bought from Space Kiddets! Girls who work there are the nicest sales people! they will help you find best brands, in qualaty and in your style! select things, match and even stay late with you when the store is closed already! the best, nothing compares! Store owner is the sweetest lady, who will get"down and dirty" digging and checking for your size and special ordering things so you can get them on time!!!! I recomend this store to open minded people who want their children to dress cool and tastefully diff. from all other kids!
