Big & Belg

A favourite store of many mommies and daddies. Big & Belg has two stores in the city, one on the J.P. Heijestraat and a second one on the Ferdinand Bol. For both stores, it goes that the windows are always filled with beautiful inspiration and creativity. Besides clothes, they also sell toys!

De kleine parade

In the heart of De Pijp, you’ll find De Kleine Parade. A superb spot with beautiful children’s clothing, a rentable studio, and a café. Many kids’ stores are colourful, but often a bit cluttered. At De Kleine Parade, you truly enter a place that feels ‘complete.’ Every item has its own place, and the entire interior is harmonized. The studio frequently hosts workshops such as craft parties – how nice is that?

This concept store is not just a shop; it also has a children’s hairdresser, and you can enjoy a drink without worrying that the toys will fly around the entire place. A great addition to East Amsterdam!
