Metro Mama & Metro Baby

By Kim Taylor

New York City parents would do well to familiarize themselves with a great trio — the Plain Mary brand, the MiGi line, and the Upper East Side’s Art Farm, as each offer something distinctive and fresh.

Plain Mary is a thoroughly luxurious lineof heart-melting little onesies, tees, bibs, burp cloths and handmade play mats, as well as designer bedding for top tier nurseries. Monogram options are available, which adds a distinctive touch to the elegant (and roomy!) play mat. Peruse the gift sets and change sets, as well as the Plain Mary “naughty/nice” shirts at www.plainmary.com.

Another nursery favorite is the MiGi Style line. MiGi Style’s Sweet/Posy (girl) and Splash/Pinwheel (boy) collections are superbly stylish and distinctive – everything metro moms want their nurseries to be. Slightly retro with a modern twist, MiGi Style’s 6-piece bedding sets, rugs, and mobiles should be seen and touched to be fully appreciated. The Butterfly Knit Blanket and plush chenille blankets are soft and comforting, and the table lamps and window valances are adorable. Visit www.MiGiStyle.com and envision everything there in your own home. Also available at Babies ‘R’ Us, this line is a celeb favorite too, including Brooke Shields, Heidi Klum and Jaime Pressly.

The Art Farm is a fantastic destination for NYC parents, offering play group time, animal care classes and a petting zoo, baking classes, preschool classes, and spectacular birthday parties for the under-five set. With a sister Art Farm in the Hamptons, this upper east side hangout for toddlers and their adults is absolutely worth exploring. Located at 419 East 91st Street (between York and First Avenue); call 212-410-3260 for more information, or visit www.theartfarms.org.

Decorate your nurseries and put the Art Farm on your calendar – there’s simply no better place to be a parent than in New York City.
