Monkey Business


Our little Curious Georges have a way of getting into things, so it’s reassuring when everything around them is high quality, eco-friendly and adorably tactile. Happily for us grown ups, we can shop for great kids’ gear at fab local boutique 3 Little Monkeys.

We can’t wait to introduce our wee ones to sledding the way we did it when we were little—on a classic wooden toboggan. There are tiny, traditional baby sleds by Bambino Grande in stock, perfect for a smooth ride around the block. Or check out the familiar long flat versions by Mountain Boy in four-foot or eight-foot lengths. They’re sturdy, sustainable and sure to be passed on to your grandchildren.

We also love the idea of the store’s Newborn Cloth Diaper Rental Program—a way to avoid over-investing in those quickly-outgrown newborn sizes. Or, if you’re a bit unsure about cloth diapering, give their Diaper Trial Program a try. Rent a cross section of sizes and brands for a week, then get a full credit towards a cloth diaper purchase when you’re ready to commit to the ones that worked for your baby.

Other eco-friendly offerings include bamboo swaddling blankets, organic crib mattresses, non-toxic wooden toys (we love the Plan Toys wooden garbage truck) and furniture from cult faves like Stokke and Oeuf.

If you’ve got a party coming up, 3 Little Monkeys has you covered with its wide selection of adorable three-piece suits and sweet party dresses, not to mention a huge range of charming pirate, fairy, robot and princess-themed party supplies.

There’s lots to discover—and happily, it’s all available on the store’s easy to use website.

If your monkeys have outgrown their gear, we’ve got 14 more Cool Kids’ Stores in Ottawa to get them sorted out.
