Tottini

Chances are you've probably trod past this shop a couple of times on your way into the downtown REI store. It's literally a stone's throw away from the parking garage entrance off of Yale Ave. Tottini is a locally owned, baby boutique filled with brightly colored gear showcased against contrasting white walls and furnishing that highlight the simple, modern style they're known for. Here you'll find all of the necessary stock of baby items on your shopping list including cribs, high chairs, carriers, feeding essentials and clothing from up-scale brands including Oxo, Oeuf, Magnificent Baby and Stokke. If you don't find what you're looking for in-store, their inventory extends further on their website, plus gift certificates are available if you need something in hand on the spot.
