I was in Antwerp a couple weeks ago with Esther. It was my first time to that beautiful city, and I LOVED it. Esther has always raved about the shopping in Antwerp (particularly the children’s shops), and she wasn’t exaggerating –Antwerp is home to the most amazing children’s boutiques and labels.
I think it’s the mix of Dutch, Belgian and French styles. In Antwerp, you can find the best of everything from those three countries. Heavenly. Honestly the place to go shopping for your kids.
While in Antwerp, I discovered the French brand, Petits Démons. Their collection of musical cushions, bed linens, and zig-zag decorations is beautiful. I love the bold colors and fun designs. What I loved most were the cute rattle cords (the photo on top), which you can hang on a cot or on a buggy.
You can’t find Petits Démons in the U.K., but you can order from French sites, Chahutbahut, or Carte Blanche. And if you happen to be in Antwerp, visit Kids on the Docks (and be prepared to go crazy with your credit card).
