Shopping for Newborns and Infants
Whether you're shopping for the newest member of your family or searching for the perfect baby shower gift, you'll find plenty of options at The Children's Place. Best bets for newborns are layette pieces, which are basic clothing separates that are designed to slip on and off easily to accommodate baby. Long-sleeved bodysuits with snaps at the neck and diaper area make diaper changes a breeze. Knit pants with elastic waists feature stretchy cuffs for a soft fit. Both pieces are available in boy's and girl's colors for under $10 each. Coveralls are another layette essential; a one-piece with snaps at the legs for diaper changes and snaps at the back is a no-fuss wardrobe staple for small babies. Infant sizes range from newborn through 12 months.
Parents often bemoan the fact that boys' clothes come in limited colors and patterns. The Children's Place offers a wide variety of graphic tees, shirts, bottoms, and sweaters. Baby boys sizes range from 6 months through 4T and big boys sizes range from 4-14. Tees range from basic solid colors, appropriate for school uniforms, to graphic tees with elaborate designs with themes like sports, music, monsters, dinosaurs, race cars, and animals. Polos and long sleeve tops, including button-downs, are also available and seasonable items like cardigans for winter and tank tops and rash guards for summer. Expect to spend less than $10 and less than $5 during clearance sales, on tops. Bottoms range from active wear like track pants and sweatpants to fashion denim and chinos. During the summer, choose from 40 styles of shorts, including madras and plaid styles, cargo shorts in different colors, and basketball and gym shorts. In the winter months, look forward to snow pants and snow bibs, as well as a popular 3-in-1 waterproof jacket.
Baby girls and big girls sizes are offered in the same range as that for boys. In addition to tees, graphic tees, denim and shorts, girls enjoy a wide selection of dresses and skirts. During warm months, look for tiered tutu skirts and casual sundresses. Parents enjoy generous color schemes that avoid pink altogether to fit each individual's personality and preferences.
Accessories and Special Occasions
If you find yourself in the market for a flower girl dress or boy's suit, The Children's Place has special occasions covered. Accessories have grown in the past few years to include apparel accessories such as shoes, winter accessories, boots, sunglasses, and hats. Non-apparel accessories and gifts are available as well, making the store a one-stop shop; expect to find hair barrettes, Silly Bandz, backpacks, totes for girls, notebooks and picture frames, and key chains.
