We always enjoy shopping at Cookies Kids. You can shop both online and in stores (if you are local to the NYC area) and enjoy great prices, great style, and an easy shopping experience. My son just started Kindergarten, and needless to say- his wardrobe needed some sprucing up.

My little guy has a uniform he needs to wear to school, and Cookies Kids specializes in kids school uniforms. They have tons of colors, styles, and brands available- our favorite is French Toast. He loves his new pants and sweater by French Toast that we got at Cookies Kids- in fact, we bought almost his entire wardrobe for back-to-school at Cookies Kids. Fast and easy online shopping, and we really do prefer French Toast, and all the things we needed at a great price, with free shipping available.

He also needed a new swim set for our upcoming travels- he really grew this summer, and since we are always on the go- Cookies Kids to the rescue with this adorable set on sale for under $10. You can’t even get the swim shirt for that price most of the time, in most stores. What a Deal!

If you have never shopped with Cookies Kids, you are truly missing out. We are true fans, and recommend the store to anyone and everyone. While many companies promise good service and returns when needed, Cookies has proven it. If you don’t want your item for whatever reason, you can ship it back and get it replaced with no hassles at all. Of course, you can also exchange in stores if you prefer.

While we were there, we were able to try out the new AvaKids app- with an iPad available to use right in the store- that helps you choose the right size and items for your children, even as they grow.

AlvaKids is a service for children’s apparel sizing recommendations. The
app/widget allows users to create an account on the mobile application or through using
the widget on retailers’ websites. Once the account has been created, the user can
make a profile for their children. These profiles hold basic measurement information
as well as some background information about the child. All of this data is used by
the AlvaKids proprietary algorithm to create a personalized sizing recommendation.
Using the account credentials the profiles can be accessed through the mobile
application and the online widget.

– Create kids’ size profiles based on basic body measurements
Access to a large database of brands
– Kids’ profiles can be accessed through the mobile app and online widget
– Measurements in the profile grow with each kid profile for accurate
recommendations now and in the future
– Ability to suggest brands to add to the system

They determined Little is a size 5- true to age- for most garments. I usually buy him size 6, because he is long in the legs and arms, so I feel they fit him better, but height and weight seems to put him at a 5. You can also choose which brands you prefer, for better sizing ideas and realistic measurements. He has long legs like his momma, which makes shopping interesting, LOL. Thank goodness for belts! (Which Cookies Kids sells for $6.95 for a two pack, yay!)

Cookies Kids is currently celebrating it’s 40th year of operation. Here is a little more information on their company;

In 1972, a young man named Cookie and his brother Marvin went into business together. They rented a 1600 square foot store in Jamaica, Queens, fixed it up, bought inventory and Summer and Fall, and opened a day after Thanksgiving with a full stock of holiday toys. The toys were a success and they put the extra money toward buying children’s clothing for the next season. When that did well, they bought more clothing. The business was on it’s way.

As the brothers Cookie, Marvin and Sonny, who had come in as a third partner in the business, began to open new stores in new locations, inventory expanded. Besides the latest fashions, our customers wanted shoes, toys, backpacks and accessories and we were prepared to deliver.

By the late 1990’s there were six superstores throughout the NYC area, and though they previously had different names, by that time they were all named Cookie’s Kids. Also in the late ’90s came an important addition to Cookie’s Kids’ inventory: school uniforms. It was the steady success in uniform sales that paved the way for founding in 2007, which originally sold uniforms and soon after the entire Cookie’s Kids Inventory.
