New York is where Madeline lived in the Plaza, where Tom Hanks lived out every kid’s fantasies in the movie Big, and Harriet the Spy perfected her sleuthing. If the bright lights and energy of New York dazzle even many adults, it perhaps makes sense that many kids also find the city fascinating.

Our guides are experienced catering to our youngest clients and their particular requests. Stops at the huge toy store FAO Schwarz (where Tom Hanks played the oversized keyboard), the Lego Store, and the Entrepid Museum are popular. Perhaps it is self-evident why, but on visits to Dylan’s Candy Store, with its encyclopedic selection of favorite sweets, our young guests are like, well, kids in a candy store. 

At Brooklyn’s Transit Museum they can explore vintage subway cars, while the NY Fire and NY Police Museums provide kid-friendly introductions to the histories of the city’s fire and police departments. Meetings with naturalists at the Central Park and Bronx zoos let kids get a closer look at the animals, while a cooking class at a classic New York pizzeria will appeal to any budding chef. 

Our private dinners at the American Girl café also get positive reviews from many of our young guests. We will pull out all the stops for birthdays and other celebrations, from meetings with cast members of kid-friendly Broadway musicals to securing spaces at the occasional “Night at the Museum” events at the
Museum of Natural History. You need Anna and Elsa from Frozen to appear at a slumber party? We’ve got you covered.
