Independent Toy Stores in Houston

It’s that time of year where you're likely to spend lots of time shopping. We all know it’s a challenge to go shopping with kids and even more so if your kid has watched those YouTube kids' shows where they open a new toy every 10 seconds. My 3-year-old knows more about all the newest toys than I ever will. If shopping at big-box stores is overwhelming, or if you simply are a fan of shopping small and local, here are eight independently-owned toy stores in Houston to check out. Happy shopping!

GoBaby App Lets New Yorkers Rent Out Baby Gear

Traveling with babies and toddlers can be as stressful as it gets. There are tantrums and tears, and most of us are not our best selves when paying an overweight luggage fee for a suitcase full of baby items or building a tower of pillows while praying our child won't roll off a guest bed.

Now there’s an app that can help families traveling to New York City with all that gear, and let locals make a little extra money. GoBaby is a peer-to-peer marketplace such as Airbnb, but for baby and toddler equipment. Remember that pack-and-play you shoved in the back of the closet just in case you need it? With this crowd-sourcing app, rent it out when you aren’t using it. And tourists? No need to pack all that baby stuff!
