15 E. Main St. Babylon Village, NY 631-587-0050
Owned by two state-certified teachers, Bubble is more than just a retail shop.
Kids can enjoy art, music, cooking and foreign language classes while parents and grandparents browse the selection of sweaters, plaid button-downs, sporty Junk Food T-shirts, hoodies, Mim-Pi crochet dresses and hair accessories handmade in-store.
Valerie Basile, of Babylon, says finding clothing her 5-year-old son will wear is a struggle, but even he approves of Bubble's selection of tees. The mom of three recently scooped up a coral sweater jacket for her daughter for fall and often heads to the store to pick out unusual gifts. "The best thing about shopping at a neighborhood store is that they know us well," she says. "If they see something I would like, they'll let me know."Hours: Monday-Saturday: 10 a.m.-5 p.m.
Sunday: Open during holiday season
