Acorn Toy Shop

323 Atlantic Ave between Hoyt and Smith Sts
Brooklyn, NY


Time Out NY Brooklyn's biggest export is no longer hiptards--it's babies. To serve the boom, Acorn stocks more educational and community-minded toys than you can shake a fair-trade rattle at. Mack play tents ($315) in bright colors replace the old-fashioned pillow and blanket fort, and a wooden animal menagerie ($13--$25) has all the variety of a Noah's Ark set without the pesky religious literalism. Playthings don't come cheap, but in more than three years, not a single toy sold by Acorn has been recalled.
