On my weekly rounds of all things hip and cool for families, I stopped in Appleseeds. Appleseeds has a large indoor play space which is what seems to attracts most families. I am drawn to the little extras.
First of all I adore that the space is on street level (my kids attend NY Kids Club and the elevator has been broken for SIX WEEKS!)--there is no hassle getting in and out of the building with a sleepy tot nestled in a stroller.
I also ran into my friend Carole Kimberg--she moved from her post at Pomme in Brooklyn to a swank new set up in the front area of Appleseeds. You don' need a membership or class registration to get your child a great haircut. Simply call for an appointment or stop in. Carole did the "first trim" for both my girls and we adore her. She's got a lovely little carve-out salon in the Appleseeds shop. Kids get to watch video while Carole snips and shapes. Parents can peruse the shop's offerings (love the Schleich animals and Appaman clothing selection).
