Bubble discovers...Our Kid

Last week, Team Bubble embarked on a whistle-stop tour of the North's best childrenswear independents. First-up was Our Kid, a Chorlton-based lifestyle boutique specialising in clothing, toys, gifts and homeware, for both mothers and little ones. 

The store was founded by mums Kate, Laura and Tess, who share a passion for white wine and homegrown kid's brands. What began as a 'wonky table' at a Manchester craft fair soon became a string of pop-ups, a website - and, finally, a bricks-and-mortar shop-and-cafe, which opened for business this June.

The aptly named Our Kid stocks everything from children's clothing (think cool, contemporary babywear by Bob & Blossom, Blade & Rose and Tobias and the Bear, and kidswear from Maxomorra and Little Green Radicals), to design-led toys, gifts, homeware (we love those alphabet lights), and products for mothers, both new and expecting. 

Kate, Laura and Tess play an active role in their local community, hosting activities and open-days onsite. Recent events included a Gruffalo hunt, 'unicorn poo' playdough crafting, and an outdoor 'backpack bling' workshop, held in conjunction with MCR Kids Collective. It's inclusive, irreverant fun, perfect for mums (and, of course, dads) who like their playdates with a glass of prosecco on the side. 

And, when they're not sourcing cool new kids brands or hosting events, the trio serve cakes and coffees in Our Kid's onsite cafe. 

Stay tuned to find out which kids stores the Bubble team visited next...
