For more than 60 years, Toys“R”Us has been helping kids be kids and grown-ups to revisit their childhoods by providing one of the largest selections of top-brand toys, electronics, games and everyday baby essentials. Founder, Charles Lazarus, revolutionized the toy business by modeling his stores after supermarkets, providing a variety of options to suit varying ages and interests and offering customers to help themselves and have fun in the process. Today, that sense of playfulness is evident at nearly 600 stores in the United States alone, including a flagship location in Times Square where kids are greeted by a 60-foot Ferris wheel, a 5-ton animatronic T-Rex, and a life-sized, 4,000-square-foot Barbie house.
Beyond everybody's favorite bikes, trains and video games, each Toys“R”Us store keeps its shelves stocked with the season’s must-have toys as well as nostalgic standbys that never go out of style. Time-tested brands such as LEGO, Radio Flyer, NERF and Fisher-Price share the shelves with an expansive selection of electronics for older kids, including Wii U and tablets. And though the company has inspired generations of boys and girls to try their hardest not to grow up, it also strives to ensure budding brains develop right on track by devoting a significant portion of its stores to “smart-play” with a wide selection of electronic learning toys and software.
Toys“R”Us—whose extended family of brands includes Babies“R”Us and FAO Schwarz—has earned a number of awards and recognitions through the years, including a spot on Fortune’s list of the World’s Most Admired Companies in 2012. The company has also drawn considerable recognition for its expansive charitable efforts, which include partnerships with the Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation and Save the Children. This year also marks the tenth consecutive year that the company has partnered with the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation to collect new, unwrapped toys and monetary donations in its stores to benefit the organization.

My Giggle Place was founded with the idea of creating a place for kids and parents to come together and learn from each other, connecting fellow parents and their children in a warm and supportive play space. Kids slalom down the chutes of plastic slides and sink into the soft, brightly colored orbs at the ball pit, all the while giving parents time to share advice on diapers or time-out philosophies. Children explore their creative impulses through puppet shows and karaoke at the Giggle Theatre or put their personal touch on frames at the craft center. The play space also offers an infant area, a building zone, a gym, and a library where toddlers can brush up on Dr. Seuss. Visitors also develop discipline and self-defense skills through My Giggle Place's tae kwon do program, with classes offered throughout the week.
Beginnings Baby Store preps soon-to-be parents for stork deliveries with snuggle-worthy swaddlings, baby-sized bedding, and informational parenting classes. Clients can acclimate future acrobats to new heights with the elevated assistance of Phil and Ted’s Me Too hook-on high chair ($49.99) or get a head start on clown-college applications with the primate-taming experience afforded by the Tiny Love Gymini Monkey Island ($64). Lighting nurseries with the glow of a starry night sky, such as the constellation projections of the Cloud B Twilight Turtle Nitelight ($29.95), sends baby calmly to sleep and reduces the risk of boogeymen infestations by 70%. Cotton onesies ($17–$19) protect limbs from pea-purée fallout while keeping tots nattily attired.
When visiting the original Farmers Market next to the Grove, a stop at the iconic Bob’s Coffee & Doughnuts is a must, as it’s often considered the best doughnut shop in Los Angeles. The Tusquellas family has been churning out freshly-made doughnuts from family recipes since 1970, and has been the winner of numerous Best Doughnut awards throughout the years. Owner Bob Tusquellas still oversees the production of 30 different varieties, from cake doughnuts (buttermilk glazed, crumb, coconut devil’s food) to raised doughnuts (apple fritter, cinnamon roll, beignets, maple bar) and many more. A cup of java is the perfect complement to these sweet treats, and Bob’s offers more than ten drip brews daily, in addition to espresso drinks and ice blended mochas.
Opened in 2004 and named after the founder Ling Chan, La La Ling is a contemporary boutique children store that sells clothing, books and toys for children under the age of ten in Los Feliz. As a busy mother of three, Ling sold the boutique two years ago to the two managers of the store, Kara and Celine. It doesn’t have a GAP or big box store feel and the clothes are more on the line of what adults would wear or like to wear. The owners seek out hip clothing for children and keep a fresh perspective towards a unique style. Their clientele is mostly local, they they’ve also acquired a large number of customers from out-of-state. A ceiling with 3-D artwork and whimsical designs of animals and extra large pacifiers adds to the fun theme of the store.
