Newbury Comics

Parents may feel better about parking their offspring with an electronic babysitter when there’s more to choose from than the Wiggles or Baby Einstein. In a chain renowned as a playground for adult music fiends, the Fresh Pond outlet of Newbury Comics does right by ankle-biters, dedicating plenty of real estate to kiddie DVDs and CDs. From Pixar flicks to the Smurfs, Laurie Berkner to They Might Be Giants, there’s a slew of entertainment options to be had. Much of it is sold gently used, too, which means indulging ADD inclinations (theirs or yours) is less of a budget strain.
