The Children's Store

Updated 1/13/11: The Children's Store has moved out of University Mall and around the corner to a stand alone store on Elliott Road. Same great stuff, new spot! And, starting in March 2011, they are going to do storytimes every Wednesday 10:30 - 11:30. We'll bring you a review on that as soon as we can.

As you know, I love local children's shops (think Ali Cat). And luckily we have another absolutely fantastic one in Chapel Hill: The Children's Store. The Children's Store is a boutique gift shop. This is not a place to go to get essentials, but it is packed to the brim with arts and crafts, specialty items (such as pedipeds), books, and, well, toys! We love it here, and are so happy that they have moved to a new location. You can also spend time here playing with the train table.

I like to gift shop for kids' birthdays here. They always have creative and unique items. And I also manage to pick up little things for C every now and again, of course! Last visit I was so happy that they had the Sandra Boynton Rhinoceros Tap book & CD. Since we love Philadelphia Chickens, I am sure this will be a hit too.

The Children's Store is certainly worth a visit, especially on your next Locopops stop!

We love this store! And those with little girls should also check out the new Fairy Godmother store across from the Children's Store. It's very pink and your little princess will love it!

That is so good to know! We're all boy over here in my house, but I will be shopping there for some of my son's friends and my niece. Thanks for the information!

Don't forget the Children's Store has relocated to 242 S. Elliott Rd., near the Locopops!

Has that happened yet? As of Jan 10th they were behind schedule and were hoping to make it happen next week. Will update our bloggity blog as soon as it's official (as usual). Thanks for the heads up!
