Looking for cool stuff that kids (and parents!) love?

We're sharing three of our top local shops for fun finds.

All Together Now

Mount Kisco @alltogethernow 

This thoughtfully-curated shop stocks the best in gifts and toys, among other things, and an impressive selection of books. Lining the book boutique shelves you’ll find board books and memory books, sticker books and activity books, classic kids literature and indie favorites, and books that tackle sensitive subjects in today’s society, kiddo style. Owner Robin Bucco, a mom of two young girls and a popular kids photographer, and her staff are pros at helping pick the perfect present. 

Bedford Candy Bar

This easy-to-love shop is a wonderland of sweets for the young and the young-at-heart. Indulge in the nostalgia of retro candies and the temptation of hard-to-resist favorites. There are also fresh cakes and cookies, as well as gourmet chocolates and Longford’s ice cream, plus slushees, shakes, and sodas - oh my! Owners Jim and Jennifer Vellano of G.E. Brown even pop fresh popcorn on the daily. Top off your visit with a ‘just because’ toy for your tots, from fidgets to craft kits. 

& James 

Katonah @andjameskatonah 

Since the day & James opened in 2014, it became the “must-shop” boutique offering trendy brands for newborns to tweens. New items arrive weekly, from fun gifts to unique accessories to cool apparel, and products often sell out faster than you can say, “I’ll take it.” Owner Jessica Harris has an eye for style, so you’ll always discover the latest and greatest for your kiddos. Inside tip: wrap your gifts in-store; the coveted & James sticker adds a special touch.
