Creative director Eric Zim was inspired by the birth of his first son to open his debut retail store, a playful shop dedicated to dads and their children. The pint-size space is filled with things that parents and kids can enjoy together, as well as home goods and trinkets for the young at heart. Inside, a Heimplanet inflatable tent ($735) hangs from the ceiling, and a Tomos moped ($2,900), customized by Brooklyn bike shop Second Stroke, rests atop a shelf. Decidedly adult finds include Sweet Bella wooden bird callers ($40–$50), Papafoxtrot mini satellites ($35) and a Unit Portables laptop bag ($100). The back of the shop also boasts a small gallery space with a rotating display of work, currently photographs ($1,200 each) by German shutterbug Wolfgang Wesener.
