For 20 years, Kid’s Ketch has been keeping children—and parents—happy. Owner Teresa Ford favors Le Top because its swimwear, playwear and dressier clothes (for boys and girls up to size 7) feature great details and are made from comfy materials. Popular this year are Reef sandals, which feature treasure boxes built into the heels. For infants and toddlers, look for Zutano—100 percent cotton clothes in many bright colors. You’ll also find Lewes T-shirts, sun hats and other accessories.
For toys and games that value imagination over dexterity, there’s still no place better than Kids Ketch. “I like it because it has unique items, great service and if you’re looking for something special, they’ll find it,” guest critic Kelli Meoli says. “They’ll gift wrap, too, so it’s perfect for a last-minute gift.” Find everything from science kits to pipe-cleaner crafts to board games, puzzles, puppets, kites, hobbies and more. There are toys for babies and toddlers, too.
