Boomerang Toys opens up in Staten Island

yhst-79641256007094_2070_164571951 We have been big fans of Manhattan's Boomerang Toys for years, so we were thrilled to hear that the mini-chain opened a third location in Staten Island . Owner and mom Karen Barwick grew up in the borough and noticed that the North Shore was lacking in specialty toy stores. The shop, which just opened last week on Forest Avenue, is run by Barwick's mom and is chock-full of educational playthings, classic board games, building sets, dress-up clothes, puppets, trucks and more for kids ages newborn to 13. It's a busy few weeks for Barwick: This Saturday, her Tribeca store is hosting a launch party from 2 to 4pm for DK Publishing's LEGO Star Wars: The Visual Dictionary. Young Star Wars followers (and their parents!) can mingle with Star Wars characters and enter to win Lego products, posters, stickers and more. Don't forget to bring the camera!
