Explore: Lakeshore



Whether you’re dropping in to practice tumbling at a Gymboree class, helping them with tree pose at Monkey Yoga Shala’s Itsy Bitsy kid’s class or taking them to get the wiggles out at Lakeside Park, with its views of Lake Merritt and downtown Oakland, this area has plenty of diversions to make a day of it with the kiddies. Fill up little bellies with a slice of the daily special pizza at Arizmendi bakery, then head into Adventure Toys and Learning Center where they can pick from a wide range of PLAN toys or Melissa and Doug wooden block sets (the sushi kit is adorable.) For more whimsical toys and too-cute shower gifts, head into Urban Indigo –equally fun for grown-ups. If they’re being extra good, or taking a snooze in the stroller, moms should stop into Maribel, one of our favorite consignment stores, to peek at the designer threads at major discounts. After all, the littles aren’t the only ones who need a treat now and then!
