This year marks the 40th birthday of Cookie’s Kids, The Kids Department Store. In 1972 Cookie, and his brother Marvin opened their first store in Jamaica, Queens and opened the day after Thanksgiving selling toys. They had so much success that they put their profits towards buying children’s clothing for the following season. After much continued success their brother Sonny joined them as a partner, and they began to open new stores, in new locations. By the last 1990′s they had six stores throughout the NYC area, and they re-branded to become Cookie’s Kids. During that time they also added school uniforms to their inventory, and in 2007 Cookieskids.com was born.
I enjoy shopping online, so when I was given the opportunity to shop for my last minute back to school purchases at Cookie’s Kids I couldn’t wait to see if they had what we needed. With school only one week away, I have been going through all of the kids clothes from last year, and have made a list of things that they need before school starts. On that list were a few basics like undershirts and socks. Most moms probably take care of these items when they purchase their school supplies, but I don’t because my kids will loose them before school starts. I don’t know what it is about socks and undershirts in this house but we can’t seem to keep them around for more than one wear. I think it’s a conspiracy.
When summer started I bought both boys a huge pack of socks, and now less than eight weeks later I can find one sock. ONE SOCK!!! Where have they all disappeared to??? Your guess is as good as mine!
So anyway, after checking out everything Cookie’s Kids had to offer I ended up with socks, undershirts, and new toothbrushes for the girls. Oh, and a wish list that I plan to start working when I get my next check.
A few things you need to know when shopping:
– Shipping is always $5
– They carry over 40 of your favorite name brands.
– They ship quickly and keep you updated via email every step of the way
– The prices are unbelievable, especially if you shop the clearance section.
– The site is very easy to navigate, which makes last minute shopping a breeze!
I shop online all the time, and I can’t stand it when a store has a ton of inventory, but is really hard to navigate. It never fails, I will find an item I want to purchase and it’s not until I click on the product that I realize they only have it in one size (which is never the size I need). With Cookie’s Kids you can easily navigate to exactly what you’re looking for on every single page!
Wanna get a better idea of what CookiesKids.com has to offer? Check out some of my favorites:
How stinkin’ cute are these three piece sets? Most of them are only $24.99, that is an awesome deal, and my daughters will be both fashionable and comfy! These four are already in my shopping bag!
With the recent change in boy’s fashion I have had a really hard time finding above the knee cargo shorts, so I was really excited to find these! I also love The North Face coats, and at only a fraction of the price they normally sell for, I’m getting one for both of the boys!
Since Anna’s birthday is coming up I decided to do a little additional shopping as well. These are a few of the things I picked out for her. PJ’s are always a big hit around here so I can’t wait for her to open these (especially since they LOVE the Peanuts gang).
I also had a little fun creating a set on one of my new favorite fashion sharing sites. Check out my son’s favorite outfit:
I had so much fun shopping at #CookiesKids! If you would like to view my entire shopping trip, you can check it out in Google+ here. Don’t forget to check the Cookie’s KidsFacebook and Twitter pages for coupons, flash sales, and new inventory. They update often so you don’t want to miss it!
My package comes in today, and I will be sure to update this post as soon as I get it to let you know what we think!
