We can never thank our customers enough for supporting local businesses like Magic Beans! Our five Boston-area stores and our booming website have you nicely covered for all things baby: strollers, car seats, nursery furniture, apparel, nursing gear, feeding gear, and the whole kit and caboodle. Our honors include Best of Boston, the Boston Parents’ Paper Family Favorites, and the Boston A-List. We’re so grateful that you enjoy shopping with us, and we’re always striving to do even better.
We also have plenty of local neighbors who do a great job outfitting parents for a baby on the way, and today we wanted to celebrate just a few. After all: a strong independent business community is a diverse one!

Shop for baby in the elegant environs of the South End! Like Magic Beans, Tadpole is owned and run by a mom and pop, and they have a lush selection of great baby brands, and a nursery furniture showroom.
Mockingbird Baby & Maternity
Charlestown – 219 Main Street
Along with baby gear and adorable clothing for babies and kids, this mom-owned shop has a great selection of stylish maternity clothes to highlight your beautiful bump, with brands including Ingrid & Isabel, Citizens of Humanity, Maternal America, and Lilac.

For the most fashionable kid on the block, mom-owned Tiny Hanger is your one stop apparel shop for ages 0-6! Get your onesies, pajamas, outerwear, swimwear, and accessories from famous brands and local designers – you can find some truly unique gifts here.

Bringing Up Baby
South Boston – 663 E. Broadway
Mom of two Sandy Sidoti established this sweet little boutique to give local parents a place to shop that’s walking distance from their homes in Southie. As you’ll see from their Facebook page, they’re very well-equipped with fancy-dress outfits for haute tots, plus everyday outfits from top brands, and a limited selection of strollers, gear, and toys.

Diaper Lab specializes in helping you find the cloth diapers and supplies that will fit perfectly into your lifestyle, making it easy to be green. You can experiment with different brands before you buy, and save some money while you save some space in the landfill!
