Stupid question: where can I buy bathtub crayons, in person, in NYC, before Saturday?

Yep. Need bath crayons and need 'em now. I don't want to order online if I don't have to. (It's for a secret santa gift.)

They have them at Toys R Us. I checked for a ZIP code in the Bronx, but you can check for one closer to you.

I've purchased these at the very very good Toy Space on 7th Ave in Brooklyn before, though it was quite a while ago.

I've bought them in a Walgreen's before, but I have no direct experience with NYC Walgreen's stores.

If you end up somewhere with a choice (and I do believe TRU has at least two kinds), know that the Alex brand are hard to draw with and the Crayola kind can be hard to clean up after.

In Union Square, Babies R Us has them (ground floor level, with the bath stuff), and Kidding Around (15th St/6th Ave) has them on the shelves by the door.

Jackson Square Pharmacy in the West Village has them.

My first thought was Toys R Us as well. They are with the art and science kits. I've also seen them in Target. Amazon 2-day shipping would also get them to you in time.
