2003 Best Baby Accessories

Mulberry Road

Whether you’re an expectant or new parent, or just gift-shopping for one, Back Bay baby haven Mulberry Road will have you cooing over its one-of-a-kind accessories. There’s no shortage of inspired gift ideas for all things baby, such as zany “splat mats” and bath puppets, unique clothing by local and European designers, and all manner of plush activity toys. (Some, like baby’s first cell phone, are as cute as they are ridiculous.) Don’t overlook owner Tracey Polidor’s handpainted furniture, which can be customized in whimsical wonderland designs or classic motifs.
