Baby + Kids Shops Online {part one}

For the kid in us all, adults and children alike will enjoy the sweet stores featured in this round up today. This is only part one since there are so many fantastic stores to list. Since so many of you contact me for suggestions on where to locate the best children's furniture and bedding, I wanted to pull this together to help point you in the right direction. All the links appearing in part one and part two can be found on the new decor8 links page that I pulled together with the help of Lorissa over at Dynamic Vantage in the UK. They are blog template meisters in case you're interested...

With that being said, here are some of my personal favorite shops that I highly recommend visiting online. From furniture to soft toys, I think you'll adore these lovely stores and remember, whether you have a child in your life or not, we all have a child within and sometimes you can find things for adult decor in kid's stores, so be sure to keep an open mind and have fun shopping around!

New to the world of online retailing, we have Grow Modern. I think the pj pocket pillows by Modern Twist are a fantastic creation, you can hide your pajamas inside of it. Clever.

With the launch of a new website, Dwell Studios is looking better than ever and designing some of the hottest products for baby + kids on the market today. Their bedding is gorgeous.

Le Souk in the Netherlands has a thoughtful collection of things for the children of parents that want to introduce their little ones to a more modern ethnic style. I cannot imagine any little girl not feeling like a princess in these leather slippers!

BabyGeared is well, geared towards babies and their selection will make you want to spend cash you don't even have, like on this crazy gadget called Nabaztag. They have a great collection of art, too.

Giggle is one of those sites you could stay on for hours, the selection is so extensive you could easily make this store your one stop shop. I especially like this quilt by Denise Schmidt and the CUB furniture collection by designer David Netto.

Mimmo focuses on modern design for kids and offers a nice selection of furniture amongst other things, but what I think makes them stand out is how easy it is to navigate their site and that all the furniture works together so well it takes the pain out of trying to match things.

Modern Child is so clean and contemporary you'll wonder if it's really for kids but surprise! And if you have a minimalist space, you can still maintain it after having kids because we have stores like Modern Child to help. I don't know about you, but this hat has to be the perfect present to give to a new mom. Oh it's so sweet.

Kid O is such a great site, you have to bookmark this one. They are dedicated to "inspiring your child with the right materials". One thing I appreciate is how much thought they put into their selection because as they say, "As children get older it is important to try to match their toys to their level of development so that they are challenged but not frustrated."

Part two will follow tomorrow, Friday December 21st. :)
