J & R Jr. Grand Opening this Weekend

by Kerri on February 9, 2012

This weekend, J and R Jr. in NYC is having its Grand Opening  Kidstravaganza celebration with many amazing musical guests.  Tomorrow, February 11, Laurie Berkner will be their special musical guest.  Sunday has a great lineup including Dan Zanes and the Dirty Socks.


Last weekend, we attended a blogger event at the new J&R Jr. Kids store. This

Large selection of strollers at J & R Jr.

event was sponsored by Momtrends and Kidzvuz.  My savvies and I were entertained by The Amazing Max and A Princess Visit while we also checked out new space.

In addition to entertainment we were able to peruse the store and see all that Jr. had to offer.  Alex Toys, Lazoo and Quinny were in attendance sharing their latest product information.

The store is large and child friendly.  We loved walking through the aisles and taking note of old favorites and new items that needed further exploration. What I like best is that it was a unique experience – almost like a showcase of the best of the best in toys and necessities for baby and child.

J & r Jr. is located at 1 Park Row and stroller access is available around the corner on Ann St.

I was not compensated for this post.  I did receive an awesome swag bag.


Alex Toys showed us how to make unique paper flowers.

Very fun! They don’t really have any kids stores like that where I live–that I know of…LOL. The only thing we get is the standard Babies R Us, Toys R US, blah. This store looks super fun. I’ll have to check them out online.
