Ibiza Kids are Lucky Kids

This sounds like a store for grandparents who dote on their grandchildren, or the Village mother who has decided " Nothing too good for my little Mary, even in the casual things."

Well, I do not want to be a spoilsport about this kind of thing...I doubt it hurts the kids any

    Lets start with the negative - It's very very very expensive.  Clothes are pricey, shoes are pricey and toys are pricey.

    With that out of the way, if you have kids, live in the neighborhood, and/or frequently need presents for your friends kids or relatives, then you will come here a lot.

    Initially, like a couple of the early reviewers, I was put off by the high prices.  Yes, t-shirts are $20-$40, which strikes me as kind of crazy for a baby or toddler.    But, there are many reasons to come here.

    First, they have super nice items.  If I am getting a gift for a friend's kid's birthday, then I come here and not Babies R Us.  They have high quality items that your friends will appreciate and that people don't typically splurge on for themselves (and you can tell the difference in the quality).  And they gift wrap them very nicely.

    Second, there are usually numerous helpful sales staff members who are very knowledgeable about the merchandise.  If you were like me and know nothing about what shoes are good for your kid and how to get a good fit when they started walking, then this was the best place to come.  Sure you can come here and try on some shoes, find the right fit, and then order it from Amazon and save a few bucks, but really it's not worth the savings.  The mark up is not that much (these are high end shoes).

    Third, the kids love it here.  There are so many toys to play with - it's like a giant nursery.  The whole store is spacious and carpeted and uncrowded, so your little ones can sit and play (or run around play, as the case may be).  I have on multiple occasions came here to give my kid a nice place to play because the weather was bad and couldn't think of other places to go (a common problem for NYC parents).  They don't pressure you to buy anything.

    Fourth, it is a great place to test out different toys and baby gear to see if your kid likes them.  Walkers, toy strollers, trucks -- it's a great place to test it out and buy only what your kid likes rather than buying stuff that he/she won't use.

    Finally, if you are savvy, you actually can find some deals.  They sometimes have decent sales and bargain bins where you can find some nice stuff.

    I love this place.  I'm not ashamed to say it.  I shop here even without the pretense of buying something for my niece and nephew.  I bought myself an Uglydoll there the other day and didn't even PRETEND it was for someone prepubescent.  AND I asked them to wrap it.  OK, that I am a little embarrassed about, but whatever.  PLUS, they don't mind if you bring in your dog.

    This place is a wonderland of things you always wanted and never got to have, always wanted, had, and threw away, or never knew existed, and must have.  Right now I am jonesing for the glowinthedark ant farm, complete with ants.

    Bring your inner child here.  You can easily drop a million dollars on things like toys, books and games.  Not to mention the rain boots with the ladybugs on them, although those do only come in kid's sizes.

    FOR NOW...

    Reservations required?

    After browsing for about 10 minutes with only one other customer in the store, I asked a member of the store's sales staff to see a few pairs of shoes.  She told me that I had not come in early enough for a shoe fitting, and it was a store policy that shoe fittings were done only prior to 6pm.  She offered to tell me about the shoes generally.

    I understand that fittings can take time; however, I do not see why this would mean we were not allowed to purchase shoes after 6pm!  Also, there was no notice posted regarding this policy (not at the store nor on their website).  This situation was very disappointing.

    This store has great toys that are interesting so it feels like you're getting something special here. They also carry fun and comfortable clothes that are cool and a great selection of shoes. Many of their clothes are organic and items can be pricey, but it's hard to resist buying something. The staff has always been very friendly and helpful in making recommendations.

    The new location on Broadway is bigger than the old place on 4th Ave. This is my go-to place when I'm shopping for a gift for my niece.

    Basically this is the only kids store I go to in my neighborhood. All of my friends have children, and no matter when I walk in, I always find the cutest clothes ever. I know my friends kids will be the best dressed in their Splendid or Ella Moss outfits. If your in the neighborhood definitely check out the store.

    In a sentance, way over priced. I bought a stuffed animal for my daughter from this store, 32 bucks. Checked on the manufactures website 15bucks. On amazon, 7.95. I wanted to buy her a dress, I couldnt find one for less than $50. I'm not a shopoholic, I dont go shopping so I feel good or that you have friendly store staff. I love a great deal and folks,  in here you seldom find one. Lastly but not leastly, like to add that I used GROUPON NOW and thot I was saving $20, instead I ending up spending an additional $35 Gave it 2 stars only because they had some stuff on sale for smart shoppers.
