Creative Little Monsters
I didn’t officially confirm this, but one reader basically said that the coloring book store is no longer, and the space is just used for kids parties.
I suppose this might have had something to do with, I don’t know, Amazon.com?
Any parent reading hear something about this?
I thought this would be a no-fail business. I wonder what went wrong…
Previous (and sadly out-dated) updates after the jump…
Here’s a view inside. They currently now have over 1000 titles in stock. Plus various other related knick-knacks.
They’re available for private parties, and will even handle some outside food if required (pizza’s, sanwiches, etc).
Reminder, this genius new childrens coloring book store opens tomorrow!
411 posted this new business yesterday without speaking to the owner, Seth. After speaking with him at length, this store is going to be a coloring book store! It’ll be a great addition to Hoboken, especially with all the new parents. He’ll offer a very interactive environment and encourage kids and parents alike to spend time in the store (great especially if the kid has ADHD!!). Parties, events, and other ways to entertain that bundle of energy.
Here’s more about Creative Little Monsters:
The Greatest Coloring Book Store on Earth
The only store for kids and kid-minded adults that exclusively sells coloring books and nothing else! It’s a place for fun and imagination- where creativity is celebrated and coloring is an artform. Every possible type of coloring book will be represented, including the following categories:
- TV & Film
- Outer Space
- Cartoon Characters
- Trains, Plains & Automobiles
- Men & Women in Uniform
- Fantasy (dragons, mystical creatures)
- Famous painters
- this month’s special/featured this month (Black History Month, etc)
CREATIVE LITTLE MONSTERS will be a bright, colorful world designed to inspire creativity and imagination- as if visitors have entered a life size coloring book for the first time. Kid-sized tables and chairs will feature tear sheets of coloring pages for kids and adults to color as long as they’d like.
CREATIVE LITTLE MONSTERS will become a destination for parents and their budding artists. We will host birthday parties, weekly performances by local children’s musicians/performers and readings by children’s authors. Weekly workshops where kids will learn to design and publish their own, one-of-a-kind color books will surely become a neighborhood favorite.
Kid-friendly candy and drinks will be sold, as well as that ever so important cup of coffee for parents.
With the demographics changing in Hoboken and all the new parents, it seems as if uptown is changing along with it. First the El Bambi baby store on 12th & Washington, now a children’s bookstore.
Finally taking the place of that long-defunct Hall’s Pharmacy location on 12th and Park is “Creative Little Monsters” (final name may be different). They will have all kinds of kids books and other fun things including coloring books to unleash the artistic side of the little buggers.
It’s run by Seth Jarrett of Jarrett Creative Group. They currently have a studio at the Monroe Center. He had involvement with MTV producing shows such as House of Style, MTV Rockumentary, Ultrasound and The Week In Rock. He later went on to direct music videos and television series/specials such as The Isaac Mizrahi Show, Candice Bergen Catches Up and The Jerky Boys: Don’t Hang Up.
His directing work was highlighted when his short film debut, “Six Months of Darkness, Six Months of Light,” starring Kelly Rutherford, won Best Director honors at the Long Island Film Festival.
In 2000, Jarrett was hired to develop and Executive Produce all music programming for the newly-launched Oxygen Network. Over the next two years he created several prominent series for the network, including Daily Remix, a daily music news show, and Custom Concert, a performance series which has featured such artists as Sarah McLachlan, Avril Lavigne, Alanis Morissette, Tori Amos and the Goo Goo Dolls.
In 2001, Jarrett established Jarrett Creative Group (JCG) to further develop and produce original programming for television. JCG continues to produce music series for Oxygen, as well as music videos, TV promo campaigns, and the 2004 reality series, “ROCKED with Gina Gershon,” for the Independent Film Channel.
