The best stuff for kids we saw at the 2009 New York City Gift Fair like cool kid jewelry, fun little toys, room decor and more. Everything will be available this year online and in stores nationwide.
These out-of-the-ordinary, handmade dolls from Ige will add artistic flair to your kid’s bedroom — even if it’s a really, really messy bedroom.
We love these quirky wind-up toys. Kids build them and then let them hip-hop all over the place.

Shains — customizable bracelets — are cool because they are made completely recycled materials, and some of the profits go to environmental organizations. But what makes them great is that kids can personalize them with their own messages by clipping on letters to spell out their names, funny phrases, and whatever they feel strongly about.
Know a little girl who needs a fun wallet or change purse? These are so cute she just might be able to keep track of hers. The ones with the key chain attachments are perfect for lunch money or house keys.
They’re not quite a barrel-full, but hanging these five little monkeys in any room will make it more fun.
Peculiar Pets look as if they’ve jumped right out of a cartoon. Kids will love the buggy eyes, funny expressions, vibrant colors, and snugglyness. They’re hand sewn with repurposed vintage textiles, so you can be sure they’re made with a whole lotta love.
