kid1OK, today’s find is really cool and I can’t wait to check them out in person on my next visit to New York – it’s the fine folks at West Side Kids.

About West Side Kids: “Since 1981, West Side Kids has been the neighborhood toy store for Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Founded by Alice Bergman and now run by Alice and her daughter Jenny, NYC’s West Side Kids carries a comprehensive selection of well-chosen toys and gifts for children of all ages. With thirty years of experience, we can confidently say we are toy experts. We can assist you in selecting the proper toy for each age and stage of a child’s development.

Now there are toys stores galore and many options to procure your toys, but how many of those places have things as cool as Domino Tulips (above right)?

About Domino Tulips: “This beautiful dominoes game plays like the classic game. When you are done, store the dominoes on the wooden poles and finish it off with a tulip bulb on top. Put the flower stems in a sunny window and see them glow in the dark later on. A must for any design minded household.”

kid2Or for a local treat, West Side Kids has a series of wooden New York City subway cars

…like the NYC Subway A Train.

West Side Kids is located at 498 Amsterdam Avenue (at 84th Street) on the West Side of the great city of New York, NY USA.

But thankfully for us…
