Shopping About Town: Bloor West Village






I loathe malls and find shopping in them a chore. They're so stuffy and crowded. Each mall is the same as the next--I’d much rather shop in one of the city’s many neighbourhoods and make it a fun outing.

Bloor West Village is a great place to spend an afternoon. It is definitely a baby friendly neighbourhood (you will be negotiating your stroller around many others) and most of the shops are family friendly.

Start at Bloor and Jane at Smart Kids Toybox. Brands carried include Lamaze, Manhattan, Brio and Tiny Love. Let the kids play while the friendly staff help you find what you’re looking for. [read on]

Oh. and what you said about not being apologetic about the past. Perfect. Wish i had thought of those words.

I too love Phil's Bootery sale table...great shoes for the little ones.

BTW, Smart Kids Toybox did shut down.

Bloor West is one of the best neighbourhoods to have a kid...because you can get everything you need without having to drive anywhere.

Ooh, I think I need to make a trip to Toronto sometime in the not-so-far future. Looks like a great place to visit!
