Learning Express re-opens in NYC

We were bummed when Learning Express Toys in Kips Bay closed a few years back. Kudos to UES mom Ali Garcia for bringing the franchise back to the City. The newly opened Learning Express Toys is well-stocked with a mix of playthings chosen by Garcia for their ability to inspire growth from infanthood through the tween years. Toys are arranged in easy-to-shop categories like art, construction, science, plush, and books. From brands like LEGO, Melissa and Doug, Hape, and Alex, you’ll find reliable favorites such as NogginStik by Smart Noggin ($24.99), Chewbeads (from $16.99), and Pip Squigz by Fat Brain Toys ($24.99)—as well as Learning Express exclusives like ABC Flip Flop Blocks by Patch ($49.99). Free wrapping and personalization is handy for gift-givers; local delivery is a plus for everyone.
