Wee Tots

Okay, so you're not going to find racks of sweet onesies or much of anything in the way of garments for little ones in this store. But who needs clothes anyway when you're just gonna stay holed up at home playing with mountains of awesome toys? Seriously, at Wee Tots you'll find a bonanza of wooden toys - the good kind - by makers like Hape, Haba, and Plan Toys that you won't find anywhere else. Plus, there's plenty of the trinkets on display for you... er the kiddos to pick up and play with while deciding if you... or... um... they like it. If you're in need of the more nuts and boltsish type baby things, they've got several high-quality travel gear items and nursery essentials to choose from and their super friendly staff will give you the scoop on everything you need to know before making a big purchase.

Insider's Tip: Wee Tots has free parking in the garage located behind their store. Turn into the Courtyard Off Main apartment driveway from 102nd St. and proceed under the archway to the first garage on the right.
