Children grow up fast, despite science's best attempts to weigh them down with apple-filled backpacks and bronze shoes. Accommodate growing kids with today's Groupon: for $30, you get $60 worth of children's clothing, toys, and school supplies at Lux for Sprouts.
In a European-style boutique for infants and toddlers, Lux for Sprouts' discerning staff choose products that blend style and eco-friendliness, culling items from lines such as phil&teds and Bugaboo. Apparel such as a boys' Quiksilver wrecking-crew raglan T-shirt ($25) or a girls' Roxy 100% cotton fallen khaki shirt dress ($42) readies tykes for school or operating a backhoe in the sandbox. Skip Hop's zoo lunchies ($16) attach securely to any backpack and keep food fresh within an insulated lining, and Dapple toy-cleaner wipes ($8.99) sanitize surfaces with natural ingredients. Toys and arts and crafts supplies, including the Thomas the Train wooden tool set ($25), awaken kids' imaginations while fostering a lucrative career in crown-moulding installation.
