Sprout opens in New York
New Yorkers bringing up baby au naturel can do a little celebration dance on Saturday, when Sprout opens on the UES. While the San Francisco-based baby store doesn’t bill itself as “green” (they believe in permanently trashing, not recycling, toxic plastic toys)—it stocks only organic and all-natural products for babies and toddlers, like clothing from Kate Quinn, toys from Plan and Apple Park, furniture from DucDuc, skincare from California Baby and Burts Bees, and the only organic glider chair on the market—plus a handy selection of diapers, wipes, jarred food, and yummy snacks. There’s also a very nice playroom, story times, cool weekly events, and baby, toddler and prenatal classes.
1375 Third Ave., between 78th and 79th Sts.
