J&R Jr. Opens Downtown

9 Feb

My husband and I moved downtown when I was pregnant with Maddie.  At that time I wasn’t thinking about trecking up to BuyBuyBaby in chelsea to test out strollers a hundred times before deciding on the right one.  On the way home from the hospital I even had my husband drop me off and drive around while I grabbed last minute essentials.  When I needed a birthday present for Maddie’s friends it waz easy to strap one in the bjorn and go up to Toys r Us.  Once Pela came, forget it, there was no way I was taking two on the subway.  I needed a babysitter or a place convienent to throw both girls in the stroller and walk too.    If you live downtown there are very few children stores for everything you need, until J&R Jr. opened it’s doors.

Last weekend I was invited to a blogging event at J&R Jr. sponsered by KidzVuz, MomTrends, and Macaroni Kid to kickoff the opening and to show off what their store will offer.  J&R Jr. offers baby gear, feeding essentials, electronics, clothing, toys, arts and crafts, and so much more from your favorite brands.   Some brands you will find include Melissa and Doug, ALEX, Lazoo, RoudySprout, Quinny, Apple, Saftey 1st, and Oxo.  It gets better, there is an area for classes and will offer developmental classes from MoonSoup.

Bloggers and their families also got a sneak-peak of the grand opening festivities which will take place February 11&12. Children experienced A Princess Visit, a magic show by Amazing Max and a demonstration from MoonSoup.  They were also able to explore interactive areas for IPADS, musical instruments, playstation, and even made a flowers in the ALEX section. There will be more during the two-day opening (click link to find out the schedule of performances). You and your family should celebrate the grand opening this weekend with J&R Jr., especially if you live downtown.  If you can’t attend or don’t live in the area, make sure you check out their online store or stop by another day.

A magical princess visit!

Disclaimer: I received a large gift bag, a gift card, and an HP printer for attending the event.  They did not impact my opinions.  All opinions exressed are my own.  I am so excited there is finally a children’s store with everything a short stroll away.
