Last Saturday was a perfect day for a trip to Dumbo, Brooklyn
, one of our favorite places in Brooklyn. We love the feeling of open space under the Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridges at the waterside park. We also love the cobblestone streets, great design shops, and restaurants.
Modern design stores for baby and kids like Half Pint
are also popping up all over the place there. We stopped in to take a look around Half Pint. There's a nice selection of furniture like this Svan Mini Furniture
If you're in the market for a new diaper bag, they have a wide selection. We found ourselves drawn to the Storksak Sienna Diaper Bag
for its good looks.
They also have a great selection of wooden toys, like this Melissa and Doug Make Your Own Dollhouse Furniture.
There was also an entire wall of strollers. This one is actually the MacLaren Toy Quest Blue and it's a replica of the adult version of the MacLaren Quest.
Half Pint also has a listing of fun family events in Dumbo if you do happen to live in the area. The 2007 Dumbo Block Party is coming up on September 8th with lots of fun stuff for kids.
