The world of kids’ clothing goes beyond the big box stores. Many independent retailers have great selections of kids' outfits for everyone in the family from babies to teenagers. These shops will dress your kids with distinction.

Little Ones

372 Eglinton Ave W, Toronto ON M5N 1A2

Prominent brands and competitive prices are important guidelines when you’re online shopping for your own wardrobe. This shop has applied the same philosophy, albeit for smaller sizes. It carries labels such as Armani Junior, Mackage, Stella McCartney and Burberry, and can outfit your kids for everything from the first day of school to an unexpected ice storm.

Natasha Babies Boutique

1181 St Clair Ave W, Toronto ON M6E 1B5

The name may say “babies,” but you’ll find clothing for kids of all ages and sizes. They’re located at Dufferin and St. Clair and there’s nearby parking. You’ll find high quality, durable clothing for casual events, special occasions or religious milestones. This store also imports European clothing selected on the basis of cost, fashion and wearability.

Kostatex Boutique

590 Danforth Ave, Toronto ON M4K 1R1

Your little ones surpass many milestones before they become teenagers, and this shop is ready with the appropriate clothes for each occasion. Whether you’re shopping for a baptism, birthday party, first communion, school photo day or wedding, make sure your tots are looking as precious as possible. Kostatex Boutique carries formal clothing for all ages, sizes and body types.

Bean Sprout

902-25 The Esplanade, Toronto ON M5E 1W5

Owner Trish Haddad set up shop in 1995, and it wasn’t long before she was receiving regional acclaim for her quality kids’ clothes. A big part of her secret is the sheer amount of effort she puts into inspecting every item before it goes on the racks. It has to meet her criteria for cost, looks, durability and taste. Trish sorts the clothes in logical categories so they’re easy to find in-store and online.

Luisella Children's Wear

1263A St Clair Ave W, Toronto ON M6E 1B8

When a clothing shop owner is a seamstress, you can generally count on good quality. Mirella and her daughter, Elisa, have been a team since the ‘70s, bringing the Corso Italia neighbourhood a high standard in children’s wear. In addition to carrying top designs from Canada, the U.S. and Europe, they also make custom clothing for occasions such as baptisms and christenings. It’s in-store shopping only, but the level of personal attention will make you feel like one of the family.

The 100-Mile Child

348 Danforth Ave, Toronto ON M4K 1N8

If you want your kids’ clothes to be sourced locally, then make a stop at this Danforth and Chester shop. Everything carried here has to have been made within 100 miles of the store. It’s eco-friendly shopping to the highest degree, with clothing made from natural and sustainable fibres. The 100-Mile Child stocks items ranging from swimwear to hats and everything in between, so your kid can be ready for any occasion, any time of year.

Once Upon A Child

5-45 Overlea Blvd, Toronto ON M4H 1C3

Keeping your kids clothed is expensive, not because the garments are priced higher than adults’ (they’re not; they’re actually cheaper), but because children grow so fast that their clothes constantly need replacing. This shop understands that and offers used clothing you can buy for less than new. And, once your child outgrows his or her wardrobe, you can bring clothing here to sell. They buy sizes from preemies to youth 20.
