Put your hands together and get ready to shop at Pipsqueak — Bedford-Stuyvesant’s favorite toy store has expanded to a new location.

Now, moms and pops don’t have to travel far to get those great buys and goodies for their kids. And it debuts just in time for the opening of school, for those necessary supplies, too.

Pipsqueak offers a full selection of toys, books, and baby care items (diapers, wipes, bath and body care) — and now, even shoes! The one-stop emporium even provides families with home goods and haircuts in its car-inspired mini salon.

Independent owner Alejandro teamed up with Bedford-Stuyvesant native Jon Vazquez and together they worked to revamp Pipsqueak’s image and carefully curated a selection of brands and specialty items to cater to the diverse community of kids and parents living in the borough.

Alejandro a young creative entrepreneur of Mexican descent, grew up on Myrtle Avenue, and spent the last six years working in the toy store industry. He feels his experience made him uniquely qualified to open up this branch to provide the best for the residents in Clinton Hill.

Pipsqueak is open every day, so what are you waiting for?
