Kids Websites Photo

Hi, everybody!

I admit that I love to shop. How luxurious does spending a leisurely afternoon in a store trying on adorable frocks and marveling over the baubles sound?

However, the realities of being a working mother make it nearly impossible. More and more I find myself enjoying the ease and convenience of online shopping, especially when it comes to buying items for my kids. I have yet to meet a kid who would give up a day at the playground for a jaunt to the shopping mall. Oh, did I mention you can shop while still in your pajamas? In. Your. Pajamas!

These are five websites that I rely on to buy clothing and toys for my children that may also make you wish you were a kid again.

Eagle toy from Oompa.comOompa.com
I am a huge fan of this website. It carries a large selection of toys with a concentration on toys from Europe, including Haba and Holztiger. Growing up in Germany, these were the toys of my youth and I love being able to watch my children enjoying them.



Etsy.com
You may want to pack a snack, because you can find yourself browsing Etsy for hours at a time. In addition to amazing handcrafted items for adults, the site carries over half a million items for kids. From handmade clothing and toys to one-of-a-kind nursery furniture, it's here.

Toothfairy Boxes Chasing-Fireflies.com
This website is such a gem. It has kids clothing, toys, party decorations and favors, furniture...the list goes on. If you or your child can imagine it, they have it. I am quite fond of the personalized pajama sets, as well as their adorable Tooth Fairy keepsake boxes. Best of all, the children's costume selection is unrivaled. From Elvis to Marie Antoinette, your child will look incredible on Halloween.
