Shopping with Kids
DYLANS CANDY BAR
3rd Ave on 60th
Supersize candy store across the road from Bloomingdales. Has a café with great desserts, not surprisingly! Don't forget to check out the 10 scoops and 10 toppings of your choice (in one big bowl) for $20!!!
5th Ave at 58th
More traditional toy shop but also pretty huge. The giant piano played by 2 men dancing on the keyboard is great to watch.

AMERICAN GIRL PLACE
5th Ave at 49th
Girls love this place! Choose a doll with your colouring (choose hair color/style, eye colour, freckles, glasses, braces, etc) and then buy matching outfits for you both! Have lunch or tea with your doll in the special restaurant, take your doll to the hairdressers and get tickets for the American Girl show. It really is girl heaven! Take Daddy with you and watch him cringe at the bill! Three floors of of dolls, dolls clothes, matching girls clothes, dolls' hairdresser, dolls' hospital, a restaurant and even a theater! This shop gets really crowded around the holidays - be prepared to get in line (around the block!)
