“We weren’t doing any plastic or battery toys, but I was having trouble finding stuff,” she recalls.
Fortunately, a chance encounter with a photographer during a photo shoot introduced Martin to an online store filled with all the goodies she had been searching for.
An instant fan — the new mom‘s first purchase was a wooden camera for her little girl — Martin was devastated when she discovered that her new favorite hot spot would be closing its doors.
“[I thought], ‘I can’t let it close!'” she says, immediately calling her husband. “I said right away, ‘I think we should buy it.'”
Now the proud owner of Romp, Martin has relaunched the online store and stocked the virtual aisles with a wide variety of super cool (and cute!) wooden toys, fun art kits, and kiddie chic room decor.
Encouraging creative play, the children’s boutique concentrates on everything from teaching your babe their letters with the handcrafted Abc Blocks ($36) to letting their imaginations soar with the pint-size Mail Set ($52) and the Dress-Up Masks ($24).
