“Do yourself a favor if you have kids – walk to the back of the store where you’ll find the best toy store ever – a hidden gem filled with toys made abroad and at home that emphasize creativity, science, motor skills, fun, and style.”
— The Strong Buzz
“We have been in NYC for a month specifically searching out great design and had been underwhelmed until encountering Module R in Brooklyn. We visited the shop three times. Every visit revealed something new and intriguing. The collection is adventurous and exciting featuring local designers and designers from farther afield, with a fresh range and combination of products all meeting the mandate for DIY assemblage somehow.”

Overheard at the Brooklyn store:
This place makes me want to have children again.
Did you see how cool all this stuff is??
If I opened a store it would look like this!
Oh my G-d, I could live in this store! You’re going to have to drag me out of here!
We’re completely overwhelmed here! We just want to stay and play!
THIS PLACE IS GREAT!!!
