Kidding Around
For more than 15 years, this all-ages emporium has kept downtown kids playing. Owner Christina Clark’s well-edited selection of toys includes cars, dolls and science kits from favorite brands like Bruder, Alex and Folkmanis. There’s also a terrific collection of stocking stuffers up front. 60 W 15th St between Fifth and Sixth Aves (212-645-6337, kiddingaround.us).
