About Us

Enriching the lives of children and families and contributing to their health, happiness, and emotional well-being.

Little Pickles

A magical place just for kids and kids at heart

Little Pickles is born of the belief that every child deserves to grow up in a world where there is a special place in their community that was built just for them; a magical place stocked with merchandise that will bring them joy and enrich their lives. 

Little Pickles is born of the belief that every parent and/or caregiver deserves a place in their community that they can go to purchase the merchandise that their child(ren) want and need to thrive in their childhood years; that will ultimately enrich their lives and one day contribute to them being healthy, happy, emotionally well-balanced adults.

Little Pickles Children’s General Store - A History

Established in 2014, Little Pickles Children’s General Store is a magical store for children in the heart of the Hudson Valley in Red Hook, NY. The concept is simple, “everything a child could ever want or need under one roof”.

To satisfy a child’s “wants” we sell toys, games, puzzles, arts and crafts, novelties, discovery kits, outdoor activities, soft friends, candy, trading cards, balloons, and party supplies.

To satisfy a child’s “needs” we sell baby clothes and gear, children’s shoes, seasonal accessories and gear, back-to-school accessories and gear, eating and drinking supplies, and bedtime and sleep accessories and gear.

In 2022 we expanded and opened our second store in Hudson, NY. Each Little Pickles store is uniquely decorated. For the second store our design team took inspiration from the Hudson River and populated the walls and ceiling with flora and fauna that populate the Hudson River.

Our flagship store in Red Hook is conceived as a circus big top with bold stripes overhead leading to the magical Land of Little Pickles.

Each store has a fun and whimsical play area to keep little kids busy while their caregivers shop.  Our Red Hook location even has an indoor tree house!

Rebecca Rothstein, Founder

I have a Dual Master’s Degree in Early Childhood & Childhood Education and Museum Education from Bank Street Graduate College of Education in NYC. I have my NY State License in Early Childhood and Childhood Education and worked as a Pre-K teacher and daycare provider before establishing Little Pickles Children’s General Store in 2014.

I moved to NYC from England in 2002. I have a musically talented daughter, Georgina (18), and an athletically talented son, Harry (10). When I became a mother in 2005 I was frustrated by the lack of children’s stores in my neighborhood. I could not find a place to buy toys, books, or practical items like shoes without having to travel a significant distance.

I saw that there was a gap in the market and I wrote the original business plan for Little Pickles Children’s General Store while I was teaching Pre-K in 2008 and filed it away.

After moving to Red Hook in the Hudson Valley in 2010 and having a son in 2012, I once again lamented the lack of kid’s stores nearby, but this time the situation was even more dire. And so, after a brief stint running a daycare out of my home, with the encouragement of my husband, Craig, I dug out the original business plan from our filing cabinet and started planning.
