Moving on up … town

We are so excited to announce the expansion of Appaman into the world of showrooms. In January we opened a beautiful corporate showroom. We turned to the design savvy of Jennifer Ward of Minor Details to help build out the space and the result is fresh, fun and perfect for displaying Appaman. We then hired the lovely Stephanie Fishman to run said showroom. Stephanie is the perfect addition to the Appaman team. She has been in the children’s industry for many years and she is as sweet as she is smart so it is a very happy marriage. Come check us out at 33 west 34th St. Suite 308 or call for an appt. 212 695 0762. She can also be reached on email at


Welcome aboard Stephanie we are happy to have you.

Rev your engines!

To complete our Pay it Forward campaign we ended with a serious boom!! We hosted the 1st Annual Appaman Gowanus Grand Prix. After purchasing a couple slot car tracks, endless hours learning how to work them, and brainstorming on a concept, we launched a full scale charity event that provided an amazing family fun day full of racing, sportsmanship, crafts, treats and more. Everyone had a blast. We’d like to thank our sponsors IZZE Sparkling Juice for providing beverages, Skinny Pop Popcorn for providing snacks, Whole Foods for providing food, Halyards Bar in Gowanus for hosting the event, and Joshua Paul for donating his time to photograph the event. We’d also like to give a shout out to all of the participants young and old for coming and to the recipient of our 100% proceeds donation to Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation for Childhood Cancer. We are proud to donate this money to a worthy cause and we look forward to another great day of racing in the not so distant future. Keep tabs so you can come next time around.
