Hello Good Morning is Kid's Stuff Paradise

So I have two little girls ages 3 1/2 and 6 1/2…and if you have kids, you know the extra 1/2 designation is critical! ;). And with little ones, who make the holidays, and really just about anything, so much fun, I am always looking for neat and useful things to get them. I don’t like showering them with gifts per say, but I am continually on the hunt for unique and fun items that could work for their birthday, a holiday, or just for the heck of it. That’s why I’m writing here today about one very special shop on NE Broadway…Hello Good Morning (they have a second location as well, see below). This one-of-a-kind shop is, well, “Kid’s stuff paradise” as I put in the title. No, you won’t find what’s at Target here. Rather, personally curated books, local, hand-crafted toys and other items from all around the world grace the shelves here. And even if you don’t have little ones, well, this place has plenty for adults too…all you need is a bit of whimsy!

Just one glimpse into Hello Good Morning and you can truly appreciate the original nature of their kids’ toys and accessories selection. Hand-painted signs, old school metal toys, unique items from Japan, just awesome! Image Courtesy: Hellogoodmorningkids.com

Apparently the owner just returned from a trip to Japan where he was picking out original, new items for the store. Very fun. Here’s the description of the store found on Hello Good Morning’s website:

Hello! Good Morning! is a happy store for kids of all ages with a whimsical and eclectic mix of locally made and imported treasures. Toys, books, art, decor & vintage.

Another good shot of what’s on the shelf at Hello Good Morning…but of course the inventory is constantly changing, meaning it’s a good idea to stop by often just to see what’s landed! Image Courtesy: Hellogoodmorningkids.com
