Store History

  • Founded: 2004
  • Founded by: Diane Crespo and Karin Schaefer
  • Headquarters: Brooklyn, New York

Diane and Karin started Acorn to offer well designed and sustainable toys. They also sell clothes from New York clothing designers and art by local artists. Acorn donates a percentage of sales to national and international schools and organizations that provide services for children.

I love products that are well designed and stylish. Acorn offers a great selection of heirloom products that you will have for many years. They are also dedicated to finding products that are sustainable and support local designers.

Acorn offers a wide range of children's products including decor, riding toys, building blocks, dolls, kitchen play, books, art, play tents, clothes, etc. They are a perfect source for birthday party present ideas and even offer a gift registry and gift certificates.

All of Acorn's toys are free of any toxic materials and many are 100% natural. Each and every toy goes through very strict safety inspections as well. To take being a sustainable company a step further, Acorn does not purchase plastic or Styrofoam shipping materials.
