In 2004, as Tribeca was bursting at its seams with new families, Babylicious was born–clothing, toys and books for the under-7 set. Six years later, Babylicious has grown into its current incarnation, Torly Kid–tot to tween.
Torly Kid 51 Hudson St. New York, NY 212.406.7440 www.torlykid.com
As a mother of two daughters who are growing up quickly, Carol has moms in mind with Torly Kid. Looking to continue serving local babies, and to fill the relative void of tween clothing options, Torly Kid keeps the aesthetic decidedly hip but always practical. The store is bright, fun and brimming with everything, including Appaman’s infamous bulldog tees and Susan Lazar’s sumptuous cotton.
This boutique has great styles for babies, kids, and tweens that are a little bit mod, a little bit sweet, and, of course, a little bit rock and roll, carrying newborn through size 10 for boys and 14 for girls.
