Your heart may pick up its pace and your face may flush once you glimpse the well-edited Seattle kids’ store, tottini, stocked with of-the-moment furniture, accessories and garb for wee ones. Will it be love at first sight? tottini carries WallCandy peel-and-stick wall art, modular bedroom furniture by Argington true modern and Netto (including cribs, dressers, armoires and changing tables), diaper bags by Haiku, bedding by Pixel, French Bull kids’ dinner sets, ride-on toys by Sirch and FLOR carpet tiles. New products include Dwell Kids bedding, Zolo toys and Vitra Junior Panton chairs.
“[In tottini] the feeling you get will be of white walls, but with lots of color popping from the products…bright colors, not pastel pinks and blues,” says Melissa Maffei, the store’s co-owner (along with biz partner Melissa VanFlandern.) The well-designed store includes a kids’ play area, allowing mom & dad to do some serious shopping. Alley 24, the sleek building in which tottini resides, is also home to Vivace, one of our favorite coffee shops, and Urban Beast, a pet store. So much to love, all on one block. Group hug, anyone?
