Pizzazz Kids in Carroll Gardens

This neighborhood gem is known for having anything you could need in an emergency for your baby or toddler. The store is tightly packed with every item you could possibly imagine needing for your kid including strollers, footmuffs, bottles, sheets, carriers and skin care. You’ll pay a little more than you would on Amazon for the same items, but for sheer range and convenience, you can’t beat dropping into the store (plus supporting a local business!), especially if you need something right away.
