The NU Kids by Stork partnership allows us to provide high quality products for parents on the go. These are the items that I want available when I travel with my family. - Jennifer Goodman, sales manager at NU Hotel Brooklyn
Brooklyn, NY (PRWEB) May 30, 2013
Traveling with young kids is fun, but it can be challenging. Little people require a lot of equipment that can be heavy and unwieldy. As a mother of two, Jennifer Goodman, sales manager at NU Hotel Brooklyn, knows this firsthand, so when she met Eyana Carballo —owner of Stork, a baby boutique in neighboring Crown Heights — a collaborative partnership naturally evolved.
Through NU Kids by Stork, launching on June 13, guests can borrow a host of equipment including: Stokke® Sleepi Cribs, baby bathtubs, outlet covers, a Tripp Trapp® Highchair with Baby Set™, toddler step stools, and Stokke® Scoot stroller, Kickboard Scooters, Helmets, and Bicycles. For guests interested in equipment rentals, NU Kids by Stork offers a host of high-end options perfect for transporting a child around the city easily and comfortably.
To celebrate the launch of the partnership, NU Hotel Brooklyn and Stork are hosting a breakfast to preview NU Kids by Stork, on Thursday, June 13 from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. The event will feature product demonstrations by Stokke, lobby and guestroom tours, a raffle, prizes and complimentary breakfast (as is offered to all hotel guests daily).
“The NU Kids by Stork partnership allows us to provide high quality products for parents on the go. These are the items that I want available when I travel with my family,” said Goodman. “Our launch event on June 13 will provide a nice preview of the program in an actual guestroom. Some of our other fun kid-friendly amenities, such as chalkboards in our bathrooms and our custom-made mural coloring books of NU Perspectives murals will also be on display. Your little Picasso can get to work here at NU Hotel!”
The NU Perspectives coloring books feature a selection of murals designed by local Brooklyn artists and the actual murals can be found on the walls of various guestrooms at the hotel. Kids can color to their hearts content and learn a little about the artists that created the Brooklyn-inspired murals.
