Whether you're looking for the teensy-iest little sweater for a newborn or the biggest selection of clothing for your daughter's mini-me doll, these Chicago kids' stores have got you covered.
We’re firm believers that shopping, even for necessities such as bibs and onesies, should be fun. That’s why we love this Wicker Park quirky kid’s store. Basic baby gear takes on unconventionally chic and often humorous twists. Be sure to check out the custom shop, where you can get tees, bibs, blankets, flip-flops and more personalized for your tyke, and don’t feel bad if you leave wishing that bitty hoodie came in your size. 1630 N. Damen Ave., 773-772-2815, www.psychobabyonline.com
The first and flagship store of the famous brand has called Chicago home since 1998, and today, is more than just a store. In the salon, girls can watch as their petite friends get their locks treated to luxury; the café serves brunch, lunch, dinner and tea; and the photo studio prints mock covers of girls gracing of American Girl magazine. Don’t have a doll? Ask for a loaner to accompany you to lunch or join in the photo shoot. 835 N Michigan Ave., 877-247-5223, www.americangirl.com
