Traveling with young kids is fun, but it can be challenging. Little people require a lot of equipment that can be heavy and unwieldy. As a mother of two, Jennifer Goodman, sales manager at NU Hotel Brooklyn, knows this firsthand, so when she met Eyana Carballom the owner of Stork, a baby boutique in neighboring Crown Heights, a collaborative partnership naturally evolved. Stork is a children’s retail boutique selling exclusive children’s clothing, shoes, and accessories for boys and girls aged 0-6 — as well as educational toys, books, and eco-friendly household products for the entire family.
Through NU Kids by Stork, launched on June 13, hotel guests can now borrow a host of equipment including: Stokke® Sleepi Cribs, baby bathtubs, outlet covers, a Tripp Trapp® Highchair with Baby Set™, toddler step stools, and Stokke® Scoot stroller, Kickboard Scooters, Helmets, and Bicycles. For guests interested in equipment rentals, NU Kids by Stork offers a host of high-end options perfect for transporting a child around the city easily and comfortably. “The NU Kids by Stork partnership allows us to provide high quality products for parents on the go. These are the items that I want available when I travel with my family,” said Goodman.
The NU Perspectives coloring books feature a selection of murals designed by local Brooklyn artists and the actual murals can be found on the walls of various guestrooms at the hotel. Kids can color to their hearts content and learn a little about the artists that created the Brooklyn-inspired murals. Guests interested in renting equipment should contact Stork directly. Available equipment for rental includes: Stokke Scoot Strollers $20/day, Nutcase and Kickboard Helmets $5/day, Stokke MyCarriers $10/day, Kickboard Mini/ Maxi Scooters and Balance Bikes $10/day and Car Seats $10/ day. The Brooklyn boutique hotel offers modern, simple design, luxury amenities and exceptional service at the center of four great neighborhoods: Cobble Hill, Boerum Hill, Park Slope, and Carroll Gardens.
