This is what we are looking for in kids stores, and this is what we found at Romp, a Brooklyn-based store with a good online catalog.We like the philosophy behind Romp's collections; they carry the kinds of toys that help children learn through open-ended play, and their home products are chosen to help integrate kids’ stuff and gear into adult apartment life without compromising on style or fun. Sounds like a good idea to us!
Below are just a few of our favourite items from Romp.
We have never been to the bricks-and-mortar version of Romp, but we are big fans of their online catalog, so don't feel like you are missing out if you are outside of the Brooklyn area. Prices are good and their stock is well edited for the modern apartment.
