Best of Boston

2007 Best Children's Clothing, West

Brussels Sprouts Kids

Relax, kids: This store doesn’t have any of those icky vegetables you like to dispose of in your napkin. What it does have is loads of great clothes you can’t get at the mall. That’s because the owner, Molly Moncreiff, orders them from faraway places like Denmark, Israel, and Cabot, Vermont. For girls, there are down-to-earth print tops and dresses that any Anthropologie-loving big sis would kill for; for boys, relaxed Charlie Rocket tees and dress-up wear that’s not dorky. There’s even something for Mom and Dad: sale signs galore.
