It’s a family affair at HomBoms Toys, a family-owned business on the Upper East Side in Manhattan.

Specializing in toys for kids ages newborn up to 12-years-old, they were recently rated in the Zagat Shopping guide 2008, proclaiming it “one of the best toy stores in NYC.”
The HBO Shop commissioned Natalie Chanin, founder and designer of clothing label Alabama Chanin, to design a special collection of “Alabama Chanin for HBO” limited-edition, embellished T-shirts.
