One of the most addicting shopping destinations is making a Manhattan debut on Nov 2. 

Five Below—the retail chain kids and teens adore—will open the doors to its 11,000 square-foot space just in time to kickstart the holiday season. Patrons are invited to explore budget-friendly gadgets and gizmos that are too fun to pass up—DIY slime kits, scented nail polish, cute plush toys, cell phone accessories, the list goes on and on. If you find yourself on Fifth Ave between 44th and 45th Streets, you're going to need to make a pitstop. 

“Fifth Avenue has long been the gold standard for any retailer, and we could not be more thrilled to bring our exciting shopping experience to one of the busiest blocks in the world,” Joel Anderson, president and CEO of Five Below, said in a statement. "We’re confident that we’ll be an appealing destination to many of the thousands of people who will pass our doors every day.”

What's even more appealing is the fact that it will increase its toy and gift selection in NYC and across the U.S., so you'll easily find the perfect stocking stuffers and Secret Santa gifts. There's a little something for all kiddos to love—from sports-obsessed to the nifty crafters. When the selection is $5 and below, there's no excuse not to do a happy dance.
