On the 11th Day of Christmas, My True Love Gave To Me For 12 days leading up to Christmas, BK Reader is highlighting 12 local businesses across Central and East Brooklyn that are great for holiday shopping!


Tykes in the Heights, 663 Vanderbilt Avenue (Prospect Heights)

Shopping for kids is literally what Christmas is about!

Sure, adults get gifts too. And your mother will be mighty upset if you don’t surprise her with the gift hat she has already told you she wanted, but it’s really all about the kids. Heck, the little rug rats still believe in Santa Claus, even after witnessing a band of drunken Kris Kringles fighting and publicly urinating during Santa Con.

So you owe it to yourself to get the kids in your life unique gifts that reflect well on you. Brooklyn kids have it good, though, because of a toy store called Tykes In The Heights. Now, Tykes in the Heights isn’t your common, everyday toy store.

It’s located in Prospect Heights and has a wonderful selection of unique toys and games for kids, including a fun range of classes for kids to engage their creative side. Whether it involves cooking or making art, the classes foster self-expression and confidence– highly valuable in this age of youth bullying.

Stop by for unique gifts that makes the giver look good, especially if you’re considered the “cool” aunt or uncle. They even have a Baby DJ school, so the little guy or gal can become the next big thing on the turntables… a kid after your own heart!
