We've Been Waiting For This

Magic Beans pops up (finally!) in Manhattan

This city offers many things. Unfortunately, Magic Beans has never been one of them. Until now. The super-smart and well-stocked Boston-based baby store is paying our town a holiday visit, and we’re psyched. Located inside the main lobby of Kidville UES (163 E. 84th St.), the Magic Beans - Fun Size pop up shop is loaded with great playthings for tots ages 0-5—all selected by Magic Beans owner (and StrollerTraffic toy expert) Eli Gurock.

Score Neo Tobbles ($27.99), Manhattan Toy Skwish (17.99), and Baby Farm Friends Bowling ($29.99) for wee ones. For toddlers and bigger kids, check out Sneaky Snacky Squirrel ($24.99), Design and Drill Take Along Toolkit ($29.99), and Castle Logix Game ($27.99).

Services like free gift-wrapping and personal shopping from Magic Beans veteran Kelsey Champlin round out the awesomeness. If all goes well, they plan to stay open permanently. Fingers crossed.
