Toto N Dot

As of today (I've been wanting to do this for months now), I have decided that I will post, once a week, a Montreal shopping destination, a boutique, a flea market, a kid friendly cafe... anything goes, as long as it's somehow kid related and I LOVE it!

My first shopping stop is at Toto n' Dot, one of my favorite children boutique in Montreal. They are first and foremost a shoe store, but they've been carrying more and more clothing lines and I have to say they should keep on adding new ones, because their selection is WONDERFUL!

First let's talk shoes... they carry all those great brands that are good for your little ones feet such as Ecco, Stride Rite, Geox, Bopy and Birkenstock. And if you are looking for the perfect ballerina they carry Bloch as well.

As for the clothing, they carry some of the best dutch brands, the likes of Imps & Elfs, Tumble n Dry, and my utmost favorite Scotch & Soda (you know that already!) they also carry Molo Kids a danish company.
A little birdie told me that some new amazing brands were on their way for fall, can't wait! Please pretty please, Amalia & Leah, bring on the cool brands we'll be waiting...

Pleased to meet you Cara Carmina...


I first saw these beautiful dolls way way back at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts book store, and immediately fell in love. So I was so delighted to see them again at a street fair a couple weeks ago when I was on vacation. However, I am upset for several reasons, first my camera batteries were dead, so I wasn't able to take any pictures.... Secondly I had no money on me, so I wasn't able to purchase one of these beauties for Miss E, secretly for me, but that goes with anything I buy Miss E...that's for some other post! And thirdly, I didn't get a chance to chat with the talented creator and mastermind behind Cara Carmina, my kids were having one of those days! Oh well thank god for the Internet, I was able to check Cara Carmina's blog here and her flicker photos here and I found these to share with you.... Look at all the details, the colors and fabric choices. You have got to love the Frida dolls, I know I do! I think I would get one those for Miss E since she also has a unibrow...
Good thing she has an Etsy store, so you and I can get our hands on one of her creations: dolls, jewelry, prints, notebooks... and look at how cute the packaging is! L'amour...
And finally, I am sure I will get to meet Norma some day soon, we do live in the same city after all, this time I'll make sure I don't just grab a business card and then leave it lying around on my desk for weeks, this time I'll try to say something proper like "pleased to meet you Cara Carmina"... Wouldn't you be?
