• Shoppable: Museum Gift Shops

    05.14.2013 / gifts, shops, toys & games


    Museum gift shops are kind of my best-kept secret for discovering new and unique (unewque?) kids’ gifts. From books to games to educational toys, the variety can’t be beat when shopping for all ages. (Also of note? Membership discounts!) And although I don’t have a museum we frequent here in the Midwest, I often take advantage of the following online museum gift shops to satiate my discovery-loving appetite!:

    1. Leonardo da Vinci helicopter kit ($19.95) at MET Museum Store
    2. Retro scooter ($105) at SFMoma Store
    3. Astronaut duvet cover ($98) at MCA Store
    4. Animal masks ($20) at MoMA Store
    5. Loose-leaf onesie ($35) at MoMA Store
    6. Yoshimoto cube ($65) at MoMA Store
    7. Natural beaded rattle ($18) at Cooper Hewitt Shop
    8. Max push car ($260) at Cooper Hewitt Shop
    9. Balloon racer ($6.50) at MoMA Store
    10. Duller colored pencils ($60) at Cooper Hewitt Shop
    11. American whistle ($12) at Cooper Hewitt Shop
    12. Egyption pyramid archaeology kit ($24.95) at MET Store
    13. Topsy-Turvy stacking blocks ($20) at Wexner Center Store
    14. Playon crayon ($12.95) at The Modern Shop

    Oh, that astronaut duvet gets me every time.
