Babies enter the world in minimal attire, as they need one month more of gestation to grow pants and a "My Mom Rocks" T-shirt. Bring their wardrobe up to speed with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of children's apparel at Kaleidoscope in Stamford.
Kaleidoscope has outfitted kids in au courant boutique fashions for more than two decades. Onesies from brands such as Chilly Kids and Trumpette ($14–$75) swaddle tiny frames, and fashions from Twirly Girl ($28–$68), Kissy Kissy ($18–$68), Charlie Rocket ($22–$54), Le Top ($18–$44) and LAmade ($16–$88) create darling silhouettes for girls and tweens or surprising new looks for the UN secretary general. Hair accessories ($3–$24) such as bows and tinsel extensions top off outfits, and Love and Kisses' pajamas and robes ($42–$58) envelop limbs in downy fabric emblazoned with patterns, such as cookies and footballs. Miniature debutantes can try on a stash of jewelry ($3–$28), including stretchy Confetti bracelets that encircle wrists with phrases such as "Smile," "TTYL," and "I listen to my parents with undivided attention." Vibrant mobiles sway above the shop's lime-green walls, which are dappled with paintings of flowers and mounted displays of fluffy tutus and other liveries.
