In addition to a sturdy pair of shoes, no child can survive without a monogrammed milk flask. Indulge the family's most treasured mascot with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of children’s apparel and accessories at Monkey Business Kids Boutique in Maple Ridge.
With a hefty collection of children’s clothing, shoes, and accessories, Monkey Business swathes tykes in fashionable getups and snug transportation. Started by two local mothers, the baby boutique swaddles newbies in cotton cocoons from Mexx ($12.99+) and Noppies and dresses miniature metatarsals in Converse sneakers and Jack and Lily soles ($29.99). After ushering their bundles to a cooler climate, proud owners can tote the stork’s copilots in equipment such as aden + anais blankets ($24.99+), canopy strollers from BOB, or gilded picnic baskets with overall-strap seatbelts, which make spit-up seem cute and tantrums sound like an opening sonata. In addition to crowning toddlers with Pink Axle hats, Monkey Business also stimulates budding neural pathways with a bounty of educational toys and games.
Monkey Business indulges customers with weekly prenatal classes and a complimentary gift-wrapping service. The boutique also caters to patrons with a private feeding lounge and changing station, and children can enlist the on-campus dollhouse to act out scenes from A Night at the Rock Opera.
