Children's clothing—unlike children themselves—can last for years without requiring stitches or depreciating in value. Dress up your human doll with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $25 worth of new and nearly new children's items at Flying Squirrel in Brooklyn.
As their kids network in the on-site playroom, parents can browse Flying Squirrel's racks of first- and secondhand clothing and toys from both local and global manufacturers. Swaddle your novelty miniature adult in clothing, such as aden + anais newborn apparel, or cocoon them in a children's New York–centric graphic tee decorated with Brooklyn and Basquiat, at least until they pupate into surly preteens. Toys give rambunctious rugrats a fun alternative toy to hydraulic jackhammers with bikes ($259–$319), Viewmasters ($5.50 for reels), die-cast vehicles ($8–$20), and a menagerie of plush and plastic animals. Otherwise, nudge along budding bookworms with literary milestones, such as The Giving Tree ($20) and Curious George. Parents, meanwhile, can lighten their load with baby carriers ($32–$135) and diaper bags from Ergo, both of which provide more socially acceptable newborn transport than hobo bindles. The website only showcases a small portion of the inventory, so be sure to visit the store for the entire stock.
