Shopping for JourneyKiddies in Rome


PAPER MOON -- A newish little shop that offers lovely silk and linen clothes for very elegant children. Salita di Crescenzo, 29 (near the Pantheon)

PETIT BATEAU -- Petit Bateau sells children’s clothing with that French certain well-dressed but casual style. At this shop, the entire line is represented so that you can outfit your chlld from underwear to outerwear without leaving the premises, making it a convenient place to shop, although the space becomes a bit cramped when the occupancy exceeds two adults and one child. Sizes zero and through 8 years. Pyjamas from zero – 16 years. Via di Campo Marzo. 10/B (historic center) tel 06 679 23 48

PROTOTYPE KIDS -- Parents of kids who insist on the best labels will be thrilled to discover this bastion of mini-Diesel, Converse and Nolita fashions, from groovy little jeans and shirts to sport shoes just like Daddy’s. Grown-ups can find larger sizes of the same labels at Prototype not kids, next door.
Via dei Giubbonari,50 tel. 06.683 000330 (near Campo de' Fiori)

RACHELE -- This children’s shop is on such a tiny vicolo, we only stumbled into it by happy accident. The wares are all fashions for the 'under nine' set, and all are made especially for the store — most of them by Rachele herself, who has set up her workshop there. Look for overalls in adorable fabrics, sweatshirts, pants and skirts. And don’t miss the colorful hand-crocheted hats. Vicolo del Bollo, 6/7 (off Via del Pelllegrino) tel. 06.6864975 (near Campo de' Fiori)

REPLAY -- In the shadow of the Pantheon, this shop is the home of the trendy Replay jeans line, which also includes jackets, printed shirts and accessories. For the trendy child in your life, there’s a Replay kid’s shop next door. Via della Rotonda, 25 Via della Rotonda, 21 kids (Piazza della Rotonda, the Pantheon)

ZUCCA STREGATA -- The Bewitched Pumpkin, sells their own brand of blankets, bedroom slippers, pajamas, backpacks and accessories of all kinds, t-shirts and sweats, all in their signature prints, so charming they even make a few items for mom. Bunnies and elephants, kittens and birds dance across gingham checks. Via Belsiana, 70 (Trident)


Kiddie Hair Cuts in Rome...

Biancaneve e i Setta Nani, aptly named after Snowhite and the Seven Dwarves, this is a hair salon for kids in Rome. A most charming little spot --The chairs are hobby horses and carousel creatures. The hairdresser is as kindly as a grandad. Whether your little one laughs (we hope) or cries a teeny bit (we hope not) this would make a great photo opportunity. Address: Via Metastasio, 17(Pantheon). Tel. 06.686 5409
