Sweet discount at Babylicious
Thu Nov 5
If you've got fistfuls of Halloween candy lying around, the thoughtful folks at Tribeca kiddie store Babylicious will be happy to take the tempting morsels off your kids' sticky hands. Inspired by the deal owner Carol Adams makes with her own kids—keep ten pieces of trick-or-treat candy and trade in the rest for a new toy—the shop will give you a ten percent discount off your next purchase in exchange for your unopened Halloween loot. All the tasty donations will go to the Harlem Food Bank, which will distribute the goodies at Thanksgiving. The offer's good through November 15 (as if the candy will last that long in your apartment!); we suggest making the most of your visit by stopping in on Tues, Nov 12 for storytime .
Google celebrates Sesame Street's 40th birthday
Wed Nov 4
Most people don't embrace their 40th birthday as enthusiastically as Sesame Street (guess monsters age really well). Then again, few humans get an exhibit at the Brooklyn Public Library , a restospective book and a best of DVD in honor of the occasion. Today, google is also marking the milestone adding Big Bird's bottom half to its logo. We've said it before and we'll say it again: Happy Birthday Sesame Street !
Wednesday's pick of the day: Galli's Frog Prince
Wed Nov 4
If your kids incessantly repeat the mantra "kissing gives you cooties!," they'll likely get a kick out of Galli Theater's adaptation of the classic Brothers Grimm tale. Though the princess doesn't technically smooch any lads, she does lock lips with a slimy green frog—which your tots will find both hilarious and slightly disgusting. Expect plenty of movement and audience interaction throughout the show.
