Shops for children
Everything kids could need or want: clothes, books, shoes, toys

Possibly the most beautiful children’s clothing shop in Barcelona. Elena Mayoral opened Lotta with the goal of selling ‘pretty things’, which is why she doesn’t much like to talk about brands, but more about the products, which come from all over. Printed T-shirts, wall decorations, retro bathing costumes… It’s a fantasy-like space inspired by beloved children’s character Pippi Longstocking.

A place made for kids and teens but still fun for adults, where you can spend hours discovering the marvels between the covers of a book. You can ask for help from the bookseller, listen to recommendations from other customers or just explore freely, picking up whatever catches your eye. There’s a hardcover section, one for those that haven’t yet learned to read, another full of well-loved stories, right next to a small selection for adults – with only titles that the owner likes – and a section for fiction, music, theatre, poetry and art, sitting opposite the educational books, games and books about books. But the apple of Casa Anita’s eye is hidden in a bunch of wine boxes – the picture books, with fiction separated from non-fiction, of course. Self-edited books, origami and puppets have also found a place here.

This children's label for kids aged 0 to 9 years old categorises its own clothes as "not so basic basics". They work with natural materials and design comfortable, creative patterns so that your kids can be snuggly-dressed from day one. In their Sant Gervasi shop they also have a small collection of clothes for women.

Petit Gegant specialises in clothing for children between the ages of 0 and 8. The designs are what most of us would have probably wanted to wear as kids: striped patterns, chequered shirts, loud cheerful colours...
