Children's Clothes

Hello! Headed to Paris in a week or so and I always try to get my kids a few outfits when I travel. Can you recommend a few local spots for toddler age clothes that are nice but not expensive? What are the go-to spots for Parisian moms? Thanks in advance!

Petit Bateau. However, you can get that in NYC as well. I love walking along the shopping drags of the Left Bank, like Rue Grenelle and pop into the many children's boutiques. There are gorgeous shop on Rue Madame and Rue Tournon.

Have a look in the nearest Monoprix. They're all over the city. They're roughly the equivalent of Target in the US, as far as quality goes.

Thanks WEQueen and HappyGoin. I will look into the shops on Rue Madame/Tournon/Grenelle and the Monoprix as well!

Also, I'm not sure what "not expensive" means exactly, but the rue Vavin in the 6th is lined with children's clothing shops. They have adorable things in all of them.

Note that French children's clothes are fabulous and fabulously expensive. Or at least I think so. The average price of a great toddler dress on our April visit was around 55€ to 75€. I can almost remember the first dress I had that cost that much!

Monoprix has wonderfully styled toddler clothes. Note that stock arrives several times a week and that not all Monoprix stores' stock is the same. The one at Pyramide stop on Avenue de l'Opera is pretty good; the one on Rennes at St. Germain, not great.

Check out the several shops on rue St. Placide, between Cherche Midi and Rennes. Often some bargains. Also, there is an outlet shop at 156 Faubourg St. Antoine near Square Trousseau (closed Mondays) that sells designer, e.g., Kenzo, at 50% off, great when they have something you like.

Great stuff also at Not So Big on rue Tiquetonne off Montorgueil. And I can't blame Brad Pitt and Angelina for shopping at Bonpoint. I would too with their money. The stuff is exquisite.

eta Agnes B is my all time favorite, but again, you have to mortgage the ranch.

Another who recommends vertbaudet and Du pareil au même.

You can get really good specials at both. I find vertbaudet very reasonable.

A Paris friend enjoys buying clothes for her grandchildren at Bonpoint, but it is expensive, as other posters have mentioned. If you have time, however, you may find it fun just to wander through the store.

Du Pareil au Meme for affordable, cute clothes; the other places mentioned have very cute clothes but are expensive. (Shopped in them for my first grandchild; now it's DPAM! :) )

Not mentioning any particular labels, but when we shop in Fance, we try to buy made in France or at least not made in China, which we can buy at home.
