Mini Jake
The large toy-cum-furniture shop was one of the parenting-gear pioneers of Billyburg. Its current selection focuses on eco-friendly and fair-trade goods: If you’re looking for trucks made from recycled milk jugs (free of phthalates and BPA, natch), this is the place for you. 178 North 9th St between Bedford and Driggs Aves, Williamsburg, Brooklyn (718-782-2005, minijake.com).
