Price: $11 - $275

We spent the weekend shopping, and particularly enjoyed visiting Kid-O in the West Village and Acorn Toy Shop on Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn. Both shops are remarkable and full of unique, healthy things for children. For last minute shoppers you needn't rely on the mail, simply step into one of these stores.

1. Fruit Prints by Enzo Mari (orginally produced in the 1960's) ($250)

2. A Hable Storage Bushel ($275)

3. Simple, Unfinished Wood Music Box ($195)

4. Wooden Tree Houses and Tree Blocks (from $30 at Acorn)

5. Wooden Sword & Sheild ($50)

6. Andrew Lang's Fairy Tale Collection with original black and white illustrations (c. 1900) ($11 ea - 13 books)
