2012 Best Children's Clothing, North

Lively Kids

Ditch the frilly frocks and sailor suits for onesies with attitude at this two-story Newburyport boutique, where newborn getups come adorned with sayings like “iPood” and “Miso Cute.” The eco-friendly wares for children under six give modern parents plenty to love upstairs, while downstairs, trendy tween styles from Ella Moss and Splendid keep older kids satisfied. Engaging staffers on both levels, meanwhile, are adept at working with tots and adults alike.
