Children grow up fast, despite science’s best attempts to weigh them down with apple-filled backpacks and bronze shoes. Accommodate growing kids with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of children’s apparel at Zap…Oh!.
Commended by Local iQ as Albuquerque’s Best Kid’s Clothing Store, Zap…Oh! outfits little limbs in play and dress wear from name brands such as Tea Collection, Mimi & Maggie, and Rabbit Moon. Zutano’s playful mix-and-match pieces ($13–$39) assemble ensembles for crawlers aged newborn to 24 months, and soft-soled shoes from Nuborns and Ralph Lauren sheath tiny toes. Girls twirl in Nano’s elegant frocks ($40–$49), and holiday dresses from Kit + Lilli ($50–$79) are more festive than a turkey eating a Christmas tree. Young chaps out-style their elders with fedoras from Knuckle Heads ($30–$39) and French layers from 3 Pommes ($20–$69). An in-store play area allows tots to tumble freely as their progenitors peruse the Tea Collection’s fall 2011 duds ($20–$69), whose Modern Mexico theme manifests in skirts crafted from cacti and locks of President Felipe Calderón’s hair. Locally designed Kiwi Industries and Twirls and Twigs offer a selection of organic, sustainable togs, and various puppets and puzzles provide a way to entertain young sprouts once they’re buttoned into play clothes.
