Acorn toys, went digital. Not that I was complaining before, mind you, but now everyone I know can check out the gorgeous selection of handmade toys and other special gifts for kids. And maybe get some for us?Well it’s about time my favorite local Brooklyn toy store,
Look around and you’ll see great children’s room decor, wonderful stuffed animals, wooden toys for pretend play, multicultural Waldorf dolls, and even accessories like the fantastic (if pricey) silver boots from Chickpea Kid that I fell in love with two years ago and can never seem to find. I’m also totally loving this German-made, plastic-free (!) wooden walker shown here, if only I had a spare $147 lying around.
Hi! We’re Kristen + Liz!
We started Cool Mom Picks in 2006 to help make life cooler, easier, more organized, more meaningful, and more fun for parents of all kinds.
Trivia: It was called Cool Mom Sh*t for the first two days. (Yeah, we rethought that.)
We had no idea our site would grow to become a major lifestyle network, that we'd end up sharing our finds with the TODAY Show and Martha Stewart, that we'd be able to make a real difference for so many small businesses and women-run companies, or that we'd end up with an incredible community of the coolest readers on the planet. (If we do say so ourselves).
But we did.
And we still love what we do every single day.
We're so glad you're here.
