This upscale boutique showcases welcome alternatives to ho-hum department-store offerings with its charming mix of sweet baby gifts and cool yet classic kids’ fashions. An outgrowth of the adorable Sammy + Nat children’s brand, it features that line, plus other select, handpicked brands. Many monogram options, too.

Kids’ Clothes for Any Style



Here’s a perfectly curated store selling the hottest kids’ brands, like Bella Bliss (for the prepsters), Pink Chicken (for the Gotham fashionistas), trendy tween lines, such as Stella Cove and Spiritual Gangster, and natural/organic styles from Bella Tunno and Milkbarn. In addition to coveted kids’ clothing, &JAMES has glamorous trunk shows for tweens, flower-crown-making events, and in-store family portraits.

The Learning Center at Katonah Museum of Art


Young or young at heart, here’s how to do the Learning Center: Grab an “Imagine It!” bag of drawing/building materials and prompts to use as you walk through the galleries. Then visit the Center afterward for a self-guided, exhibit-themed craft project with oodles of supplies, a display area to add to, a touch wall, and other activities. Finally, curl up on a beanbag with related books and videos.

Kids’ Optical Selection

Eye Designs


Sure, one can find unique designers and on-trend styles for adults at Eye Designs, but it’s also the premier location to find kids’ styles. With lines that come in impossible-to-break designs, the store offers a warranty package, so whether it’s scratched lenses or lost frames, Eye Designs will handle it.

Kids’ Clothing

Wyatt Lily


Wyatt Lily offers a taste of NYC in their large Scarsdale boutique with upscale clothing in sizes infant to 14 years for boys and girls. It’s the go-to place for hard-to-find yet ultra-trendy pieces. “Our look is little-girl chic, which makes it cool for moms, too,” says owner Rachel Uchitel. “Is it your daughter’s or yours?”

STEAM Classes

The Digital Arts Experience


The after-school workshops at the DAE encourage budding young scientists and engineers to explore STEAM-inspired topics, such as computer programming/coding, 3D printing, graphic design, audio, video & VFX production, game design, digital drawing, Web development, physical computing, and more, in a hands-on, project-focused way.

Kids’ Sports Training Facility

House of Sports


At 120,000 square feet, House of Sports is the New York Metro area’s largest sports complex, chock-full of exactly what every sports-nut Westchester kid wants: top-notch facilities for basketball, lacrosse, soccer, baseball, and hockey. The complex offers many options, including open play, sports classes, training camps, adult leagues, and birthday parties.


Sabrina’s Murals

White Plains;

From outer space to sports to fairy-tale scenes, muralist Sabrina Crowley can make your child’s (and your) wildest design dreams come true. Her son, Joey, was her inspiration to spread joy through this type of art (his mural was her first) — which she can create in bedrooms, playrooms, and nurseries, plus communal areas, like schools and businesses.

Kids’ Art Classes

One River School of Art + Design


Founded with the goal of bringing cool art schools to the suburbs, One River’s mission is to deliver an art-education experience that is both fun and current. With two locations in Westchester, students — whether kids, teens, or adults — can enjoy classes in drawing, painting, sculpture, digital art, photography, and filmmaking. Summer and school-break camps add to One River’s appeal.

New Toy Store

Penny & Ting


When you walk into a toy store and feel the magic, a place where charm and cool coexist, you know it. The space is a warm hug of first-rate name- and boutique-brand toys (don’t miss the Ravensburger 3D puzzles), books both classic and new, Wupper bouncy mobiles, games, stuffed animals, and art supplies that color outside the lines, hand-picked by a former educator.
