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 $25, you get $50 worth of children's clothing from West Village Kids. This deal does not include the $8 flat rate shipping fee.
Presented in Time Out New York Kids as one of the hottest web-based boutiques, West Village Kids outfits trendy tykes from newborns to tweens in the fashions of top-notch American and European designers. With myriad options for both genders, parents can garb girls in a selection of dresses, tunics, and rompers, or bedeck boys with various polos, graphic tees, and shorts. The tie-dye Diesel polo gives contemporary kiddies an edgy yet retro flair without the hassle of stuffing an oversized Afro with Ren and Stimpy action figures ($55) and the floral rose skirt by Jean Bourget provides simple yet adorable springtime attire ($50).
A variety of shoes and seasonal items are also available, as well as Funky Junque jewelry ($15–$59), brand-name jeans, and assorted sale items. When requested, owner Michelle Marx can also act as a free personal shopper for any customer, assisting parents in picking out styles that will help their children dazzle on playground runways.
