The Bank of America Winter Village at Bryant Park will begin Saturday, October 28 and we can’t wait for free admission ice skating, seasonal events and holiday shopping! The annual winter attraction is one of our favorite holiday markets in New York City because it always hosts a cool collection of pop-up businesses to help us find the best gifts for everyone on our list, including tykes! Below a few of the kid-friendly shops in Bryant Park's Winter Village that we can’t wait to visit this year.
The perfect toy for kids who are into all things dinosaurs rests on the shelves of this shop. These sweet items are eco-friendly, designed and made in Brooklyn and educate little ones about prehistoric creatures.
These puzzles give young minds a serious workout with wooden brainteasers and historic games first created in the 19th century. NY-based carpenter and artist Kobi Levi not only breathes new life into ancient favorites, but he also works with other inventors to help make their puzzle games a reality.
Kids will be drawn to the bright and colorful offerings from this brand while the grownups will feel good knowing that they’re supporting elephant conservation in Sri Lanka. Items like cute soapstone sculptures are 100% handmade and all their paper items are made from fiber gathered from elephant waste. We promise they look pretty!
Your kids’ jigsaw puzzles are about to get a major designer upgrade. New York Puzzle Company takes vintage magazine covers, children’s books and posters and converts them into awesome jigsaw puzzles you’ll probably want to frame once they’re assembled. Parents might spot their own favorite childhood titles like Peter Rabbit, The Berenstain Bears and Jan Brett.
If you’re on the hunt for something whimsical to dress up your kid’s room or work desk, these quirky items might be just what you’re looking for. Mini green soldier figurines that double as erasers will make homework sessions a lot more fun!
