We were all a twitter when we heard the news. Could it be true? Another great kids’ store has opened its doors in Leslieville? As quick as could be, we winged our way down to Queen Street East to check out Little Peeps, the newest shop to open its doors on the strip we’ve come to love.
We’re so glad we did! Little Peeps is the creation of Alyssa Dahl, an industrial designer who first made her mark as one of the original designers of the ever-popular Webkinz stuffed animals (yes, we thought you’d heard of them). With her winning eye for what kids (and parents) want, she opened her beautiful and wonderfully stocked boutique at the end of October.
We’re fans of many of the brands the peeps at Little Peeps have brought to their shelves: a selection of nifty gear from Boon and SKIP*HOP, beautiful wooden toys from Plan and Melissa & Doug, adorable paper goods from Egg Press and fashionable togs from Tea and Egg by Susan Lazar.
