Best Kids' Stuff - 2005
3785 Balboa (at 39th Avenue), 221-5862, www.mirandasmama.com
If you've got a bun in the oven, Miranda's Mama has a great selection of flattering and inexpensive shirts and pants for the expecting woman, but the store's most prominent feature is its assortment of new and used clothes, shoes, books, and toys for babies and young children. In fact, the shop is so packed with goodies that it's an easy place to lose track of your child. Miranda's also offers an array of baby transport items -- single and double strollers, BabyBjörns, miniature trikes, backpacks, and walkers. Depending on the stock the day you go in, you could also find a handmade rocking horse or a Moses basket with handmade bedding. If you're looking for a baby gift, check out the knitted and crocheted baby wear at the counter area.
