The top 10 kids clothing stores in Toronto
Kids clothing stores in Toronto offer a wide range designers, styles and sizes and thankfully prices. The best stores are all over town and include a mix of big box stores as well as places that let you shop local.
Here are my picks for the top kids clothing stores in Toronto.
H&M at the Eaton Centre
The refreshed H&M store at the north end of the Eaton Centre is a mecca for good value, contemporary clothes from babies up to teens. Stock up on jeans, underwear, socks, t-shirts, skirts and outerwear for girls and boys. It's the mall's best option with better fashion and prices than GAP Kids, the Children's Store and Old Navy.
The neutral (and unisex) clothing from Mini Mioche is made in Canada, using organic fabrics and non-toxic dyes. Mini Mioche has your daily onesies, T's and basics covered, from babes in arms up to 6 year old.
Advice from a Caterpillar
AFaC specializes in clothes so on trend you'll wish hand me downs went in reverse. This Summerhill area boutique stocks Stella McCartney High Tops, a must have for any pre-schoolers back to school shopping list.
Higher Ground for Kids
Higher Ground for Kids on Yonge, just north of Eglinton features designer brands names like Desigual, Deux par Deux and Lacoste and they also carry more approachable functional gear like K-Way jackets and ski stuff from Spyder.
Further up Yonge Street, Sporting Life offers pieces from Ralph Lauren and Stella McCartney that will bring a pop of personality to your kid's wardrobe. Sales are legendary, so shop off season for the best deals.
When only the finest threads will do, Jacadi, the posh Parisian clothier- has just the threads for your wee ones to get them tea-party ready. Most people shop here for the special occasion dresses and traditional oxford style dress shirts for boys.
Chateau de Sable
If Jacadi proves slightly too stuffy, but you still want to dress your kid like a mini Carlton Banks, then perhaps Chateau de Sable near Yonge and Lawrence is up your alley with their cardigans and jumpers for ages from newborn to early teens.
Once Upon a Child
If you don't mind doing a bit of sifting and settling, then this is the store for you. Shop early to score good deals on seasonal stuff like jackets and snowpants. Trade your gently used gear in while you're at it, and the circle of life continues.
This tiny shop on Yonge street north of Lawrence will almost make you claustrophobic but the footprint of the store doesn't allow for anything but the best selection, with Desigual, Deux par Deux and adorable SPF 50+ hats from Puffin Gear.
Leslieville and Beaches parents love Bumbleberry Kids. Their collection is top notch and while the selection varies, the service is always reliable and the prices are a steal. Stalk their Instagram account to see what's fresh and to call dibs on new arrivals.
